      Rise Up!

      Rise Up! – MAINSTAGE April 24, 25, 26 & May 1, 2, 2020 FRI/SAT at 7:30pm SUN 4/26 at 2:00pm KENNEDY THEATRE MAINSTAGE Annual Dance Concert Directed by Betsy Fisher Rise Up! presents dance as a potent expression of social consciousness and features choreography by seminal dance figures Pearl Primus, Donald McKayle, Anna Sokolow, and more. Lewis Allan’s poem about lynchings, “Strange Fruit,” also recorded as a single by Billie Holiday, will be embodied in Primus’ powerful choreography. McKayle’s majestic “I’ve Known Rivers” and Sokolow’s riveting “Steps of Silence” will also take the stage. Audience input will influence a work choreographed by UHM dance faculty entitled “Vote.” The age of Aquarius dawns in part two, with selections from the 1968 Broadway hit, Hair, accompanied by a live rock band with choreography and musical direction by Honolulu’s own Andrew Sakaguchi. Rise Up! shows in colorful, imaginative action, that dance creates powerful and glorious social statements.
