The University of Hawai`i at Hilo Performing Arts Center (PAC) will present Okareka Dance Company of New Zealand’s rescheduled performance of Mana Wahine on Friday, Feb. 2, 2018, at 7:30 p.m.

The original performance, scheduled for Oct. 24, 2017, was postponed due to travel issues.

The five-woman performance combines dance, theatre and film to tell the true life story of Te Aokapurangi, a young maiden from Rotorua. Captured in battle by a tribe from the far north, she returns many years later to single-handedly save her people from slaughter, as well as experiences within their own lives.

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,” wrote Raewyn Whyte of Theatreview Magazine in New Zealand.

Tickets purchased for October’s postponed performance are applied to the Feb. 2 date.
