Misfits, Failures and Those Who Died Trying: Te Radar's New Zealand Heroes.

Eating the Dog is a satirical look at New Zealand's history, focusing on Te Radar's New Zealand Heroes, both Maori and Pakeha. The bumblers and the near-do-wells who personify the archetypal "She'll be right" spirit that epitomises this country.

The history books are full of the champions who put this country on the map and gave us an international reputation for creating ground breaking heroes. But what about the people who don't have their chapter in the history books? The ones we weren't taught about at school? The ones who will never get their face on a bank note? The people that gave it a red-hot go, but perhaps lost a limb, or their life, in the process. Finally we have their champion in Te Radar.

Eating the Dog is an irreverent and hilarious look at those folk who show us that in order to have success, there have got to be a few failures.

Part educational history show, part installation art - a look at what it is that has made us so unique and who helped us get here.
