Aaaaaaaaaaall our main-page posts have mysteriously disappeared…

Well, how strange!  I haven’t been back to this site since the summer of 2011, and now I find that all of our lovely historic posts with all their lovely historic comments and links have mysteriously disappeared!  I wonder where they all went?  Well, I suppose I should have known…. after all, wordpress is rather unreliable.  Oh well!  At least the pages are intact ^_^.  If I ever shoot for a season four, or if someone else ever picks up this festival’s dropped ball, we’ll post about it here!  Many thanks- E.G.D.

Three Years of Press, but no longer visible online

I am disappointed to note that the Honolulu Star Bulletin,  Honolulu Advertiser, and Honolulu Star Advertiser archives are no longer publicly available.  This, sadly, means that most of the review links I’ve posted on this page over the years are no longer visible, which is a crying shame, because we’ve been delightfully well reviewed (especially our 2009 inaugural season shows!).  I’ve been on the internet, trying to find some remnants of our press history, and all I came up with was this:

2010

Honolulu Weekly

2010 Photo Gallery (the personal gallery of our photographer)

2011

Star Advertiser Review

Beware!  Even these may be gone at any moment.  If you need them for your portfolio, by all means, print them out now.  Incidentally, I find myself increasingly more grateful for the “audience comments” page on this site, in part because “Dann” posted John Berger’s 2009 Star Bulletin review.  Granted, I’m still not entirely sure it’s legal to have that up here 0_o.  Anyhow, happy summer everyone- E.G.D.

A Crazy Year

Well, I can’t say this year went off without a hitch, but by all accounts it was a good, entertaining show.  Many thanks to the wonderful people who made it happen, and that includes the people who came to watch.  Here’s looking forward to a less chaotic fourth season, and another spectacular selection of wonderful new works.  Mahalo- EGD

A glorious addition!

We are thrilled to announce that we have accepted a fifth dance piece for this year’s program!  It has been choreographed by Phoebe Hwang, and the title for the piece is Sideways.  We look forward to sharing it with everyone at the end of the month!  Mahalo- EGD
