Courage, Determination & Fearlessness // Mana Wahine

The hugely successful Mana Wahine which premiered at Q in 2014, returns to our stage.

Okareka Dance Company's Mana Wahine draws strength from the legend of Te Aokapurangi – a young maiden from Mokoia Island who, after being captured in battle by a far north tribe, returned and single-handedly saved her people from slaughter.

From this story of courage, determination and fearlessness Okareka has created a vision of strength that empowers women around the world.

Watch the video and hear from the audiences who fell in love with Mana Wahine at it's Q Theatre premiere in 2014 and all around the country. Next year it heads overseas, so don’t miss your chance to see Mana Wahine before it leaves our shores.

"If you love dance, have never seen dance, or even possibly hate dance you really owe it to yourself to buy a ticket to this show. All involved are geniuses. This show really is incredibly awesome. ‘Nuff said. Go see the show.” (Sharu Delikan, Theatrescenes)
