Denison University Department of Dance Presents 'E Hula Mau'
Posted: March 25, 2005
The Denison University dance department's World Dance Program presents "E Hula Mau" (The Continuance of Hula) at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (April 7-9) in the performance space of Doane Dance. The performance will feature Denison University World Dance Hula Program students. Tickets are $8 for the general public and free to seniors and Denison students, faculty and staff. Seating for the performance is limited so reservations are recommended and can be made at the website: Dance Events
Carole Lanialoha Lee-Sumberg, assistant dance professor of the World Dance Hula Program, is the artistic director for the performance. The performance will look at the historical aspects of Hula from the arrival of missionaries and Spanish cowboys to post-1900s. The program will take the audience on a journey of hula through time and the people of Hawaii and their way of life.
The World Dance Hula Program's Spring 2005 semester is in honor of the second World Hula Conference to be held on Maui, Hawaii in July 2005. The conference's theme title is "`Ike `ia no ka loea I ke kuahu," which translates as "An expert is recognized by the altar he builds." This poetic saying motivates Lee-Sumberg's concern for the future of this critical and resilient art form.
Special guests joining the Denison students are the students of Ke Kula Kupa`a O Ka Pakipika (Kupa`a's School of the Pacific), which is based out of the Japanese American Service Committee and is a school governed by a non-profit organization called Kupa`a-Pacific Island Resources based in Chicago. Lee-Sumberg is the founder and executive director of Kupa`a-Pacific Island Resources.
