Stories from Hawai'i

Performance, painting: SYLVIE PROIDL

In the Hawai'ian Islands, the hula (dance) serves as a mechanism for an indigenous culture that originally lacked a written language to hand down their history. The Canadian dancer Sharon Booth, supported by texts presented by Sylvie Proidl, will tell the story of huge waves and the never ending fire of Pele in the crater Kilauea. The book Holo Mai Pele provides the framework for the performance, in which the action will be set in full-scale paintings and a video projection.
