Upcoming Events

The APDF proudly features performances by international and local guest artists as well as events and lectures open to the public.

June 2 and 3, 2018

The Asia Pacific Dance Festival will be back in June of 2018 with a production of Sendratari Ramayana, a traditional Balinese dance-drama.  

The performance will also feature classical dances and instrumental music from Bali. The production is a collaboration of Honolulu-based Gamelan Segara Madu, University of Hawai‘i Balinese Gamelan Ensemble, and  Tokyo-based Otomori Gamelan Studio with more than 30 performers from Bali, Japan, and Hawai‘i.

Mark June 2 and 3, 2018 in your calendars for two fabulous performances at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa’s Kennedy Theatre.


In 2019, we will return with our full two-week-long festival, including Intensive Courses, Welcoming Ceremony, Talk Story sessions, workshops, outreach activities, and our Festival concerts — Living the Art of Hula and Local Motion!, featuring local dance artists, and our ‘Ike Hana concerts, featuring one of our own local halaus and two companies from abroad.
