IONA Contemporary Dance Theater (Oahu)

IONA Contemporary Dance Theatre is dedicated to the creation and performance of innovative dance/theatre works that provide transformational imagery and messages.

IONA’s mission is to effect a positive change in the community while providing opportunities for artists to evolve. IONA seeks to enhance global consciousness toward cultural reverence, environmental and animal protection, and world peace through aspects of beauty and creativity as rooted in the art of dance.

In 2015, IONA will celebrate 25 years of visionary dance in Hawaii with the premier of a new evening-length work on the Hawaii Theater stage. ‘Aumakua’ is the working title of an introspective new work assimilating instinctive group consciousness among animals with technological communication between people.
