Show Information

Set on the salty and smoky coast of Turkey against the backdrop of one of humanity’s oldest and richest oral storytelling traditions, A Traveller’s Guide to Turkish Dogs is the story of a dog and her man.

A journey across continents. Turkish Dogs is the spellbinding true story of a mad historian, immortal fishermen and the Mother of Wolves; border crossings, buried treasure and the value of companionship. It’s an OE like you’ve never seen or heard, brought to life by a pack of Aotearoa’s most captivating shape-shifting actors.
