Willow Chang and Passport Productions Presents

PUJA 2010 : LOVE LETTERS


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.

Know the fruit of your labor is your labor of love. If you know that, no one can take that from you. When you recognize that, know your worth is eternally internal, not external. When we sow bountifully, we will reap bountifully and bear much fruit that is far bigger than ourselves, what is in our posessions. No earthly riches can fulfill what Father God can. When someone cannot see we are highly favored and the harvest coming our way, know that for him or her though seeing, do not see. Keep on moving and recognize we have more than enough. We need not another person's approval for the fruit of our labor that bears much fruit. Be glad and rejoice for this is the Day that the Lord has made called Today. Know that Father God approves of us, our work ethic and dedication. It is you who Father God is well pleased.

Be bold! When a topic is controversial and you feel strongly about it, be unafraid to speak out in public even when in error. Most of us don't care about how politically correct a person can be over how authentic and real he or she is. It's how we learn from one another as long as we're appropriate to one another. Most of the time when we are in error we learn more. That does not mean to be intentionally in error like a troll would be, but it is good to give our best effort to speak out on tough and sensitive topics. No one cares if we are always right. Even a mathematically cannot always be right, but that mathematician will find a way to learn from his or her math errors. If you only spoke out when you are right, then you will not grow into tackling tougher topics. The moment you feel you need to stay silent on tough issues is the moment you've allowed yourself to be passive about an issue that does concern you. We have a voice for our generation. Be that voice. Use your voice. Be passionate and use your voice to advocate on the topics you want to be heard.
