“What do Jackson Pollock and IONA Contemporary Dance Theatre have in common?” The answer just may be found in “Paint By Number,” part of their new Salon Series of performances. Choreographed by Cheryl Flaharty and backed with free-form music by Quadraphonix, IONA dancers will animate a blank canvas with movement saturated in paint, leaving behind a record of their movement in a colorful map of lines and loops.
“Paint By Number” will be staged on the 4th floor of the King Kalakaua Plaza (Niketown) in Waikiki at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 18 and Saturday, March 19, 2005. Tickets are $17 in advance ($20 at the door) and can be purchased from the Hawaii Theatre Center box office or by calling 528-0506; tickets are $17 in advance and $20 at the door.
Now in its 15th year, IONA Contemporary Dance Theatre combines influences of Japanese Butoh and contemporary dance.
