Cerberus is a new work that explores the dynamics of power and gender through the story of Cerberus, the three headed dog of Greek Mythology who guards the gates of hell. Told from the perspective of the two dog trainers who must prepare Cerberus for their essential role in determining who enters and exits the underworld. This is a high voltage, physical piece of storytelling that draws on Weiland’s extensive experience. Cerberus speaks directly to the current context of gender based violence and domestic assault as documented in the Stella prize winning novel, ‘See What You Made Me Do’ by Jess Hill.
In recognition of the deep history and culture of this island, we wish to acknowledge the Tasmanian Aboriginal community, who are the traditional owners and continued custodians of the land and waters of lutruwita (Tasmania).
