Join us for this chicken skin event as we celebrate our heritage and honor our 'aina (land) with a traditional Hawaiian chant and dance.

HULIAU is the performing company of the hula school, Halau Hula Ka No'eau. Under the direction of Kumu Hula Michael Pili Pang, the company began touring in 1994 and has since presented over 50 performances throughout the United States, Canada, and Korea. The styling of the company is rooted in the teachings of Hula Master Maiki Aiu Lake. Michael Pili Pang is a protogee of Mrs. Lake; he and his company have taken hula into the 21st century by fusing traditional choreography, chants, and dances with innovative stage presentations. The company's name represents the concept of HULIAU ..."a turning point in time where one rooted in the past, influenced by the present, and tell stories for the future." In other words, it's about knowing the past, understanding the present, and preparing for the future.

About Tonight's Performance

Tonight's performance theme deals with evolution and change. The story begins with a journey from the mountains where one meets the gods. Below the forest is the ocean; rising, it signals change; like the emotions of love it is overwhelming and unpredictable. In the forest the women find shelter; along the cliff the men imitate the gods. Waiting for the canoe to arrive, anticipating the changes to come. The journey is just beginning!
