"Fahu Goes East" at Chen Dance Center

In celebration of Asian/Pacific-American Heritage Month Chen Dance Center presents Kauila Kanaka'ole, from Hilo Hawaii, in his solo presentation "Fahu Goes East."

"Fahu Goes East" draws from Kauila's personal journey spanning from Hilo, Hawaii to New York City. The grandson of a legendary Hawaiian family of hula and chant practitioners, Kauila's passion for the art of fashion design propels him east, and through dance, story, and irreverent humor, the artist talks about family, fashion, and a search for freedom.

The show is co-created by Kauila and Roberta Uno. Choreography is by Kauila, Pualani Kanahele Kanaka'ole, Kekuhi Kanahele, No'eau Kalima, and Princess.

Friday-Saturday, May 25-26, 7:00 PM
