Honolulu, Hawaii- Tau Dance Theatre dancers and musical bands, barefoot bob & the

Shod, The Liana Mason Band, The Intire Project, The Heretics and an array of artists and

poets to showcase their talents and help raise money for Tau Dance Theatre, a 501 c3 nonprofit

organization and Hawai’i’s critically acclaimed professional dance company. It is

dedicated to perpertuate traditional Hawaiian art forms while setting new and unique dance

standards by blending Pacific and Asian themes with Western contemporary theatrical

disciplines.





Since 1992, Tau Dance Theatre has successfully provided educational outreach

performing arts activities to local, national and international institutions. Showcasing

Hawai’i as its artistic birthplace, Tau Dance Theatre continues to tour and mesmerize diverse

audiences around the world with its vibrant and eclectic dance performances that are lightly

laced with some elements of serious social statements and weaved in with beautiful narrative

Asian/Pacific mythology and ancient stories.


“The respect for nature and spirituality, the honoring of positive aspects of ethnic diversity

and cultures, along with the teachings of our native ancestors continuously inspire me to

always create new choreograhies of intricate fusion of ancient and modern dances. It is our

hope that our audiences will always come away with a sense of joy, wonder, and reverence

for our human capacity for artistic exploration”, says Peter Espiritu, founder of Tau Dance

Theatre.


Proceeds from silent auction, merchandise sales, and door fees will be used to provide funding for the

16th Tau Dance Theatre anniversary event and for additional performing arts programs for

disadvantaged youth in the state of Hawaii. For more information, please contact Leni Knight at
