Description A road trip into the agoraphobia and desolation of the Australian outback, roadkill is situated within the minds of its three performers. It explores their fears and their twisted perceptions of the landscape and its dangers. Interlaced with these fears are urban myths, backpacker deaths, thirst, love, distrust and the harsh loneliness of the bush. roadkill is a terrifying ride into the world of a couple who break down in the middle of nowhere and find that their greatest danger is not their isolation. Roadkill deals with these psychological states through a vocabulary of intense physicality.
