The story of the first migration made by the Tahitians who arrived long ago. This piece depicts the wild and rugged ocean conditions while they journeyed north across the Pacific in search of a new home and a new life.
A smooth and very sultry dance solo done as if in a dream. The soloist is dressed in shells that reflect light from all angles as she glides across the stage mythically.
This scene pays homage to the strength and agility of Kahekili, Maui’s most feared ruling chief. The men will carry weapons through the crowd as if hunting and make their way to the stage for an all men hula depicting battle cries and chants.
This is a crowd favorite that tells the story of Madame Pele traveling across the Pacific in search of a new home to continue her craft of lava. This is portrayed with vibrantly colored costumes and beautiful hula.
The Mo’o is deep in the Hawaiian forest where a mysterious creature dwells. The Mo’o or mythical lizard is known to have magical strength and powers. He is also famous for being haughty and protective of his domain.
Hi’iaka, younger sister of Pele, is sent on a quest for Pele and comes upon the lair of great Mo’o. He calls to challenge her in a tricky game of chance and riddle in order for her to pass.
Oh, la la! This part of the show tells of the sailors down at the docks, interacting with the hula girls. This fast moving play acting comedy utilizes the hula of that time when swing was introduced to Hawai’i.
Naula Is a beautiful performing arts piece where the parachute fabric makes it come alive. It whimsically plays in the air in its own movement while floating around the dancer.
The dancers are synchronized with their fire knives as they swing, move and punch through the air.
Chief Mana Fire Knife
Breathtaking fire knife performance by 15 yr veteran Chief Mana completes the show. He joins the other 4 fire knife dancers to put on a fire knife extravaganza, leaving guests in awe.
