Two award-winning and acclaimed Hawaiian musicians, Nathan Aweau and Jeff Peterson, join forces to create Mamo, a thrilling duo that takes traditional hula standards (along with some of the pair's original works) and gives them a little jazz twist. The result is a fresh look at some of Hawaii's most popular hula songs. Peterson is a renowned slack key guitarist who's proficient in a variety of styles from jazz and classical to slack key and beyond. Bassist and vocalist Aweau has been hailed by The New York Times for his "advanced understanding of harmony and orchestration" and "effortless" singing. Both are Na Hoku Hanohano Award winners who have dazzled Barclay audiences with their brilliant musicianship in recent years. Learn More

- "Completely seductive." --The Guardian (UK)

Pronounced “kush came,” this company will make its first West Coast appearance en route to New York. Controversial, startling and aggressive in movement and text, this dance-theater piece is based on the studies of couples’ relationships by noted psychologist R.D. Laing. Widely acclaimed on the international festival circuit, this award-winning evening, bursting with high-octane choreography, is both brutal and touching — and at times, hilarious. Virtuoso choreographer Liam Steel (of Stan Won’t Dance) directs the six performers of CoisCéim in a show that tries to untangle the complexity of human relationships.
