Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival are delighted to partner with the Napier Municipal Theatre and local supporters to present Ōkāreka Dance Company’s runaway success story, Mana Wahine.

Created by three of Aotearoa’s best contemporary dance exponents, artistic director Taiaroa Royal with Taane Mete and Malia Johnston, Mana Wahine celebrates the essence of wahine, life and death. Drawing from Māori tikanga and combining dance, waiata and karakia with mesmerising imagery, this work offers a vision of the strength that empowers women around the world. It emulates the journey from creature to motherhood, life force to the spirit world, and honours Papatuānuku (Mother Earth) and our powerful ancestresses.

This extraordinary work was inspired by the true stories of two Te Arawa ancestresses, Kearoa and Te Aokapurangi. From the stunning opening to the spine-chilling finale, this display of courage, determination and fearlessness translates femininity into a mesmerising performance that honours the strength, honesty, integrity and nurturing energies of women.

Online registration required - visit the Hawke's Bay Arts Festival website for more information.
