The UH Hilo Performing Arts Center presents:

Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion Dance Company:  PAVEMENT

Tuesday, February 24, 2015, 7:30pm

John Singleton’s film, Boyz N The Hood had a profound effect on 14 year-old Kyle Abraham. Now, reimagined as a dance work and set in Pittsburgh’s historically black neighborhoods, Homewood and the Hill District, Pavement aims to create a strong emotional chronology of a culture conflicted and a history plagued by discrimination, and a constant quest for a lottery ticket weighted in freedom. As two rivaling neighborhoods, their histories run parallel. Both experienced a cultural shift in the 1950s when jazz legends like Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington performed at local theaters. Over half a century later, those same theaters are now dilapidated, and the streets that once flourished on family run businesses and a booming jazz scene, now show the sad effects of gang violence and crack cocaine.

Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion’s work intertwines a sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on sound, human behavior and all things visual in an effort to create an avenue for personal investigation.

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, DAVID SEDARIS has become one of America’s preeminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms & political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

Sedaris is the author of the collections of personal essays Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, & Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, all of which have become bestsellers. Sedaris’s pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker & have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.” His latest book entitled Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls was just released in paperback June 2014.

DAVID SEDARIS will appear for one night only, featuring all-new readings of his work & a book signing. Reserved Seating.

The UH Hilo Sailing club has a lot of fun out on Hilo Bay.  At least once a month, UH Hilo students head out on the water to and learn the basics of small boat sailing, gaining practical, hands on experience.  

This club is aimed at the novice sailor who wants to feel confident in being able to sail a small boat on their own.  Want to take part in this fun nautical learning experience? Visit the sailing club at  http://hilo.hawaii.edu/rec/SailingClub.php
