RECALLING HAWAI’I is a heartfelt hula theatre chronicle awakening the past, revealing the present and the future of Hawai’i through imagery, music and dance. Visionary Roselle (Keli’ihonipua Lindsey) Bailey directs the diverse cast of 60 performers of all ages, including dancers, chanters, musicians and actors. Eight halau of Maui, Kaua’i, O’ahu, California, Germany and Switzerland are uniquely woven together under Ka ‘Imi Na’auao O Hawai’i Nei Institute to bring this extravaganza to O’ahu Island.
Recalling Hawai’i began in 2010 by a special invitation to perform at Heidelberg Castle in Germany. The production was followed by sold out shows in Basel, Switzerland and Augsburg, Germany that same year and a sell-out again on Kaua’i in May, 2011. In June of 2012 the show played to nearly 1000 at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center’s Castle Theater and again in February of 2013 at Hilo’s Palace Theater.
The show is Roselle Bailey’s personal interpretation of Hawai’i’s history from the time of creation, or Kumulipo – through all the historical highlights that have made Hawai’i what it is today. It mixes traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music and hula, complemented by projected images in the background.
