Carnival of Exotic Mayhem at Kahilu Theatre
The local nonprofit dance company Prince Dance Theatre will host Return to the Carnival of Exotic Mayhem, a dance party fundraiser at the Kahilu Theatre in Kamuela on Saturday, Sept. 24, from 7 to 11 p.m.
This year’s fundraiser will feature crazy costumes, video projections, magic, fire dancers, go-go dancers, aerialists, dance and cabaret performances from members of the company, and more.
DJ Danny Waddell will play rocking dance music all night long in a wild and carnival-like setting.
Treats from the Blue Dragon’s Dragon Wagon and chocolate confections from Cocoa Le’a will be available for purchase. There will be beverages for sale at the Kahilu Theatre bar.
Prince Dance Theatre is raising funds for the creation of its newest work, Black Matter, a collaborative effort between Artistic Director Angel Prince and Jean-Charles Cuillandre from Canada, France and Hawai‘i.
Black Matter aims to be an entertaining, informative dance theatre piece on the topic of space and dark matter.
In addition, through an outreach component, the company and astronomers will go into local schools to present the work to students in an imaginative and educational way.
In the spring of 2017, set to premier is a new evening-length work created for theaters.
Return to the Carnival of Exotic Mayhem is an all-ages carnival dress-up event.
Adult tickets are $25 and $10 for under 12. Tickets are $100 for the VIP package, which includes two beverage tickets, one food ticket, five prize giveaway tickets and dancer-escorted entrance to VIP areas.
