IONA's 2016 E Season presents the entire evening-length production of DESTINY

'Destiny', IONA's most exuberant work, speaks of the maternal strengths of the Earth and the forces of change. The evening-length production draws content and imagery from a magical "Garden of Eternal Truths", Eastern and Western religions, gods, goddesses, healing, and peace. In an all-encompassing work, Artistic Director Cheryl Flaharty merges dance with video, spoken word, and captivating musical scores to reveal the creative structures that define our spiritual beliefs and shape the destiny of humanity.

'Destiny' has been performed over the last 15 years at The Hawaii Theatre, Maui Arts & Cultural Center, Kauai Performing Arts Center, and the Kohler Center for the Arts. It has always been received with standing ovations. IONA's E Season features video from the 2003 Hawaii Theatre production.

IONA's E Season is supported by The State Foundation on Culture and the Arts through appropriations from the Legislature of the State of Hawaii or grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.
