Six new dancers—including Sean McDonald, Hannah Tasker-Poland, Paige Shand, Imogen Tapara, Tyler Carney and intern Cushla Roughan—were brought on for this project along with a team of designers. They’ll be working with four leading Wahine choreographers – Kelly Nash, Nancy Wijohn, Gabrielle Thomas and Louise Potiki-Bryant.
