Willow Chang and Passport Productions Presents
PUJA 2011 : FANTASTIC VOYAGE
Windward Community College Paliku Theater
June 4th, Saturday 7:30 p.m. & June 5th, Sunday 2 p.m.
As Hawai’i’s Original Multicultural Dance Concert and Festival, we celebrate our 4th year with PUJA: FANTASTIC VOYAGE. Our events celebrate dance, movement and music, with both traditional and innovative approaches. The show and cast promise to delivery the inspiration, diversity and creativity that are synonymous with PUJA.
In 2008 Willow Chang and Passport Productions presented PUJA: An Offering In Dance, a journey in movement and music with artists from Honolulu and abroad. Puja, the Sanskrit word meaning "offering", is a celebration of devotion and the divine, expressed here in dance. As Hawai’I’s original theatrical dance concert featuring both traditional AND modern dance, it’s no surprise both shows sold out-and audiences were ready for the next show!
In 2009, the vision continued with the concert PUJA: Gods and Monsters, and 2010’s LOVE LETTERS. The shows brought artists from all corners of the globe to explore the wealth of stories, myths, movement and music, spanning experiences that are both unique and universal. 2009 marked the debut of the PUJA dance Workshops, with 25 different classes offered by the artists in the concert.
Now in its’ fourth consecutive year, PUJA Annual Dance Concert & Festival continues in 2011, with the theme PUJA: FANTASTIC VOYAGE.
This show will explore ALL aspects of a Fantastic Voyage, ranging from unique cultural traditions, expressive explorations, journeys of the heart and travel of the imagination.
The PUJA Dance Concert & Festival is a unique and groundbreaking experience that celebrates where tradition and innovation meet.
