Description "A couple are stranded in the Australian outback with a car that won't start next to a phone box that doesn't work. A road trip into the agoraphobia and desolation of the Australian outback: a place of dreams and dust and ghosts. A land where backpackers disappear and tragedy strikes the vulnerable. It is situated within the minds of its three performers. It explores their fears and their twisted perceptions of the landscape and its dangers. Roadkill is stunning, edge of your seat dance theatre: highly physical, sexy, funny and ultimately intensely unnerving."
