Set in Hokkaido, Tokyo, and Hawai‘i, "Dance Dance Dance" leads us to open doors to “other” places. Represented by the warped, non-linear space-time of the Dolphin Hotel in Sapporo and an old multi-storied building in Downtown Honolulu, these “other” spaces contain the potential for personal healing by offering characters and audiences alike a chance to restore, rebuild, and rediscover a sense of self. Dancing becomes a metaphor for a fulfilling life. Having purpose, love, happiness is like a dance – we know all the moves, we just have to keep on moving, keeping in step, not letting go of our dance partners, for as long as the music plays.
Post-show Q&A follows the FRI 1/27 performance.
