Pele: Goddess of Fire

Hālau Ka Waikahe Lani Mālie presents the first-ever dance theatre production of Hawaii's infamous mythological figure, Pele: Goddess of Fire.

Story: Pele, the Goddess of Fire, falls into a deep sleep travelling throughout the islands of Hawai'i. When Pele arrives on the island of Kaua'i, she meets the charming Prince Lohiau'ipo, who falls deeply in love with the beautiful and mysterious stranger.

This theatrical production from Aotearoa's first officially sanctioned hula school combines music, traditional and modern hula, drama and chants to bring you the story of Pele from Auckland's community of hula students.
