Women’s power, authority, culture, energies and essence, is celebrated in acclaimed Okareka Dance Company’s, Mana Wahine.
This courageous performance, created by three of New Zealand’s best choreographers combines dance, theatre and film in this powerful performance. Taane Mete, Taiaroa Royal and Malia Johnston have created a collage of powerful imagery that transcends space and time.
Mana Wahine/Powerful Woman emulates the journey from creature to motherhood, life force to the spirit world, the honouring of mother earth and sky father.
Ancient Maori practices of karakia/prayer, song/waiata and mythology are weft throughout the performance to enhance cultural connection from Aotearoa New Zealand to the rest of the world. Okareka Dance Company continues to deliver productions that bind culture with dance in a contemporary context.
From the stunning opening to the spine-tingling finale, be inspired by this display of courage, determination and fearlessness as Mana Wahine evokes the spiritual status of “the woman” within us all.
