About: Roadkill

A couple are stranded in the Australian outback, with a car that won't start, next to a phone box that doesn't work, and their water is running out. They only have each other. Then someone quite unwelcome arrives...

This stunning, unsettling piece of dance theatre is a manic ride down the highway of misconceptions about the heart of Australia. Using unorthodox, amazingly irregular movement and intense drama, roadkill is part road movie, part excavation into the urban legends and paranoia that surround the outback – a place where backpackers disappear and the ghosts of original land owners and lost explorers still haunt the bush.

Splintergroup was formed in 2004 by a group of performers who first met at Meryl Tankard’s Australian Dance Theatre. Having already achieved success as individual choreographers and dancers, their first collective piece, lawn, received international claim.

Splintergroup develops work using a highly collaborative approach, in which all peformers in the show take equal responsibility for the direction of the piece. roadkill is their third full length production.

‘A truly Australian dance-theatre masterpiece... simply one of the best things you'll see in the theatre’
The Australian (on lawn)

Ruinning time: 75 mins/no interval
