As Creative Cauldron’s “Passport to the World” series continues this weekend, local arts patrons will be able to explore the Pacific Islands through two performances at ArtSpace Falls Church.

On Saturday, Feb. 15, at 7:30 p.m. Carol Takafuji and the Polynesian dance troupe Hui O Ka Pua ‘Ilima will perform traditional and contemporary songs and dances of Hawaii and the Polynesian Islands of New Zealand and Tahiti. Their presentation format is informative and interactive and aims to spread the spirit of aloha and love for the history and culture of Hawaii and Polynesia through song and dance. Tickets  are $20 for general admission and $18 for students and seniors.

On Sunday, Feb. 16, at 2 p.m., Vivian Takafuji and the Polynesian dance troupe Ta’ata Roiroi will create an interactive afternoon of storytelling, music, and dance from Tahiti, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands. Imaginative storytelling will be accented by the inventive puppets of Creative Cauldron’s scenic designer Margie Jervis. Tickets are $10.

ArtSpace Falls Church is located at 410 S. Maple Ave. For more information, visit creativecauldron.org.
