Armed with an array of amateur musical ability (Kate having an excellent grasp of the guitar, and Shae twenty plus years experience with the tambourine), an occasional outburst of something is to be expected. This fine duo skip their way linguistically through many eras including: an Australian soap drama, Up Over, Down Under, where a false pregnancy, and a mock up of a small Hadron Collider in a neighbours' yard, conflict with an important barbeque, a murder mystery on a sofa (two-seater), and a 1940s love affair gone wrong due to a rather hefty sinus infection.

Full press release

Shae Kuehlmann and Kate Roxburgh are The Under Dogs. Armed with an array of amateur musical ability - Kate having an excellent grasp of the guitar, and Shae twenty plus years experience with the tambourine, an occasional outburst of something is to be expected.

This fine duo skip their way linguistically through many eras including:

Up Over / Down Under, an Australian soap drama, where a false pregnancy, and a mock up of a small Hadron Collider in a neighbours' yard, conflict with an important barbeque;

Inspector Moss - A Murder Mystery on a sofa (two-seater);

And a 1940s love affair gone wrong due to a rather hefty sinus infection.

Kate and Shae met on a serious Shakespeare tour in Hollywood and soon discovered they both had a liking for interpretative dance and thus the partnership that is The Under Dogs was born. Moving to the UK in 2011, Helsinki is their second Edinburgh Festival show and looks set to mark them out as ones to watch for the future.
