ROCKETMAN is an epic musical fantasy about the incredible human story of Elton John's breakthrough years. The film follows the fantastical journey of transformation from shy piano prodigy Reginald Dwight into international superstar Elton John. This inspirational story -- set to Elton John's most beloved songs and performed by star Taron Egerton -- tells the universally relatable story of how a small-town boy became one of the most iconic figures in pop culture.

 

Katie Walsh  Tribune News Service:  "This dizzy, delirious jukebox musical has the energy and visual dynamism to truly reflect the outlandish aesthetic and performance style of its subject."

 

Ty Burr  Boston Globe:  "Which is to say that as long as "Rocketman" is charting the jet-propelled rise of Elton John in the early 1970s, it is an absolute gas."

CONCERT:  KENNY ENDO & TAIKO CENTER OF PACIFIC      

THURSDAY   JULY 18    (7 PM) 

 

World Class Taiko Master Kenny Endo and Taiko Center of the Pacific make a performance stop at the historic Honokaa People's Theatre on Thursday, July 18th at 7 pm.
This is a rare opportunity to experience Endo and his taiko troupe in concert. Endo was last at the People's Theatre in 2014 with Tarang, a percussion group from India. 
Endo will be conducting lecture/demonstrations at the Hilo and Pahala Public Libraries on this trip but the performance at Honokaa will be more concert style.
Endo is at the vanguard of the taiko genre, continuing to pave new paths for this Japanese style of drumming. A performer, composer, and teacher of taiko with numerous awards and accolades, Endo is a consummate artist, blending Japanese taiko with rhythms influenced from around the world with original melodies and improvisation.
Endo just returned from a performance a workshop tour to Europe and will be performing in New York and Tokyo in the coming months.
Don't miss this opportunity to experience Endo and Taiko Center of the Pacific in a people's concert.

CONCERT:  MARKUS MARS - ELECTRIC VIOLIN       

FRIDAY    JULY 26   (7 PM)

 

MARKUS MARS @ HONOKA'PEOPLE'THEATER

Live looping artist and multi-instrumentalist Markus Mars composes entire concerts in front of the audience, with the audience. He makes each performance a unique experience by picking up the existing energy fields of the room, combining them with the vibes of the present energies, and transforming them into an audible superfood.

Markus Mars started his human journey in the Austria Alps. After being trained in classical music for over 15 years, composing for and touring with several Symphonic Orchestras and Chamber Orchestras, he started playing the drums and electric violin in rock, blues, world music, and fusion bands. He soon discovered his passion for electronic music making and started performing and touring internationally.

After sharing his talent in 30 countries with more than 60 bands and orchestras and playing over 3,000 shows, plant-based food enthusiast Markus Mars moved to Hawai'i and found a mesmerizing volcanic foundation for his new endeavors.

His latest manifestation is an immersive Space to Earth live-looping ceremony - an interdimensional live looping performance series with a 5-string electric violin, a telescopic didgeridoo, a subwoofer Cajon, and some alien vocal expressions, composed live in front of the audience by implementing the present vibes of the now and featuring elements of his transformational musical journeys.

Markus Mars co-creates a live looping psychedelic world music experience, sound bath, meditation, and tribal dance ceremony, gently influenced by inspiring artists such as Jean-Luc Ponty, Andrew Bird, Johann Sebastian Bach, Steve Reich, Adam Plack, Johnny (White Ant) Soames, Shpongle, Jimi Hendrix, and Miles Davis.

The debut album “Live At Perfect Harmony” is now available.

 ECSTATIC DANCE

SUNDAY   (4:30 PM)  JUNE 16

 

Come and treat yourself to the experience of free-form movement to world-rhythms mixed live at the event.

Ecstatic Dance is a place to dance “from the inside out” and connect with like-minded people of all ages in a safe and non-judgmental space. Given the large amount of people that may show up to the event and the nature of our free-form movement, for liability purposes this dance is open to anyone aged 13 years or older only.

In its most basic definition it is free-form movement/dance inspired by music, allowing our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern for the grace or beauty of the dance. This is the dance you dance as if nobody is watching! It is an inner/outer journey of moving meditation that develops a direct body-spirit connection. Let your body and inner guide be your teachers.

No dance experience or partner is necessary. It's a perfect outlet for those who think they can't dance and for experienced dancers alike. It is free-form, not a structured dance. It is also not a social dance. It is an environment without observers or conversation, where you can feel safe to try new things and really push yourself out of your comfort zone.

Ecstatic Dance Guidelines:
1. Move however you wish.
2. No talking on the dance floor or altar - low whispers off the floor please.
3. No shoes on the dance floor.
4. Water breaks to be taken off the dance floor.
