A NORPA Production

about the show

The Devil Dingo lives in the underworld – a forest with all the animals and plants that have ever existed. It’s almost Summer Solstice on earth and Dingo has slipped through a crack, and is roaming in the forest that borders Alice’s house.

When Alice and her support worker Kate venture into the forest for the night – the shape shifting Dingo is ready for them. By trickery and transformation, he manages to win Alice over, and lure her away from Kate. Under the watchful eye of the Dingo, Alice explores a blur of flora, fauna and gets lost in the rhythm of the forest.

When fire strikes Alice is sent underground only to find herself longing to return to her friend and family – but how will she get home?

Made for secondary schools as part of our School Engagement Program, we invite you to join us for a show full of heart and adventure.
