Parris Goebel and Sisters United are in the midst of creating one of Tempo Dance Festival’s hottest tickets this year – GIRL; an intimate show that delves into the journey of young females discovering their inner power. For the cast, Goebel auditioned many young women from high schools around Auckland – many who had never attended an audition before. Through the show, Director of Sisters United Kendal Collins hopes to empower young Māori and Pasifika women.

GIRL will be showing at Q Theatre from 11-12 October. For tickets head to qtheatre.co.nz.
