ADD: The Iona Pear Dance Theatre from Hawaii, praised by Dance Magazine and described as "...dark, funny, perplexing, mystical and always provocative..." by The Honolulu Advertiser , performs with a surprising fusion of Western exhibitionism and Eastern introversion. "The Mythology of Angels" uses astonishing costuming and the spontaneity of Japanese Butoh dance techniques to examine angels and their many mythological forms.
