Willow Chang and Passport Productions Presents


Windward Community College Paliku Theater
June 5th, Saturday 7:30 p.m. & June 6th, Sunday 2 p.m.

As Hawai’i’s Original Multicultural Dance Concert and Festival, we celebrate our third year with PUJA: LOVE LETTERS. This event combines dance, movement and music including traditional and innovative approaches. The show and cast promise to deliver the inspiration, diversity and creativity which are now synonymous with PUJA.

In 2008 Willow Chang and Passport Productions presented PUJA: An Offering In Dance, a journey in movement and music with artists from Honolulu and Proxy-Connection: keep-alive Cache-Control: max-age=0 road. Puja, the Sanskrit word meaning "offering,” is a celebration of devotion and the divine, expressed here in dance.

As Hawai’I’s original theatrical dance concert featuring both traditional AND modern dance, it’s no surprise both shows sold out!

In 2009, the vision continued with the concert PUJA: Gods and Monsters. This show brought together artists from all corners of the globe to explore the wealth of stories, myths, movement and music, spanning experiences that are both unique and universal. It also marked the debut of the PUJA dance Workshops, with 25 different classes offered by the artists in the concert.

Now in its’ third consecutive year, PUJA Annual Dance Concert & Festival continues in 2010, with the theme PUJA: LOVE LETTERS.

This show will explore ALL aspects of love, from romantic to familial, friendship to platonic, to love of country, a special place, a type of dance and all the shadowy sides of love like jealousy, madness and heartache.

The PUJA Dance Concert & Festival is a unique and groundbreaking experience that celebrates where tradition and innovation meet.
