Two best friends, Niarra and Te Umuroa, are playing in the bush in Tasmania when they stumble upon an incredible find: the world’s very last thylacine, or Tasmanian Tiger. You can call him Tigs.  

On the run from hunters, they decide to set sail with their new furry friend for Aotearoa, but on the way to safety they must outwit the Māori gods and palawa spirits in this magical work from Performing Lines TAS.  

Co-written by palawa playwright Nathan Maynard (trawlwoolway pakana) and Māori writer Jamie McCaskill (Ngāti Tamaterā, Te Ati Haunui a Pāpārangi, Ngā Puhi), and directed by Noongar man Isaac Drandic, Hide the Dog is a true trans-Tasman collaboration celebrating Antipodean First Nations culture (and finally showing at Sydney Festival after postponement in 2021).

Step into a magical world of elaborate costumes, puppetry and spectacular projections and effects.
