Okareka Dance Company says
Brisbane Powerhouse WTF (World Theatre Festival) presents Mana Wahine.
AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE

Celebrate powerful women with this all-female dance work that draws strength from traditional Maori mythology.

Three of New Zealand’s best choreographers combine dance, theatre and film in this powerful performance. Inspired by the true story of Te Aokapurangi, a young maiden from Mokoia Island who single-handedly saved her people from slaughter, this collage of imagery and movement transcends time and space.

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.

A free Q&A session will follow Friday’s performance
