Mana Wahine I Okareka

Our critic today is Dione Joseph, who’s reviewing the dance production, Mana Wahine. Under the stewardship of kuia Tui Matira Ranapiri-Ransfield, co-authors Tai Royal, Taane Mete and Malia Johnston have brought together a fierce and spirited narrative that blends worlds, vivid imagery and human dexterity. Okareka have created a finely wrought contemporary work that is deeply indigenous and profoundly modern.
