Okareka Dance Company: Mana Wahine

Thursday, October 26, 2017; Castle Theater; 7:30 pm

Formed ten years ago, Okareka Dance Company was established to fuse contemporary dance with indigenous Māori themes and other genres to create authentic, diverse works. Led by senior performers, Taane Mete and Taiaroa Royal, they have become one of New Zealand’s most sought after and prolific dance companies. Okareka holds its provenance close to its heart: it is a company guided by Māori beliefs. Through choreography, set design, and costume, the company strives to create evocative, beautiful dance works that tell bold, spiritual stories of and from New Zealand, to their audiences around the globe.
An all-female work, “Mana Wahine” (Powerful Woman) draws strength from traditional Māori culture to illustrate a tapestry of dance, theatre, and film. It emulates the journey from creature to motherhood, life force to the spirit world, the honoring of mother earth and sky father. Ancient Maori practices of karakia (prayer), song (waiata), and mythology are weaved throughout the performance to enhance cultural connection from Aotearoa New Zealand to the rest of the world.

“Mana Wahine is above all a rich fusion of choreography, music, tikanga Maori and performance practices, AV, lighting and performance design … enriched and enlivened by the dancing of five powerhouse performers.” Raewyn Whyte, Theatreview
