Okareka is a Maori contemporary dance company.  Artistic Directors, Taiaroa Royal and Taane Mete along with General Manager/Producer Rachael Penman have produced some wonderful works:

Tama Ma, Ng Hau E Wha, Mana Wahine and K'rd Strip  - A Place to Stand.  They contributed to Pianora, a recent ATC and Okareka collaboration with the support of the New Zealand Arts Festival and currently they are developing  No 8 Wire, an exciting new work for Okareka.

Summer schools and individual schools workshops also occupy Tai and Taane fully too with loads of students benefiting hugely from their learning in these workshops.
