Tokiko Oyama and Koji Ogushi Performance
The East Hawaii Cultural Center will host one of
Japan's honored elders in both the world of
dance and visual art, Tokiko Oyama, in a Butoh
dance performance with master calligrapher and
karate expert, Koji Ogushi. Performed in a large
illuminated paper structure, the calligraphic
work of art is spontaneously created as the
Butoh dancer moves inside the creation, also
becoming a calligraphic work of art. It is truly
one of those remarkable experiences that
elevates the spirit and connects the soul from
sea to sky.
Friday, July 19 & Saturday, July 20 at 7:30. $15
advance & $20 at the door.
Saturday, July 20, 10 AM - 2 PM
Oyama, who studied with the originator of Butoh,
for a free workshop to explain Butoh dance and
her interpretation of this unique art form. She
will be accompanied by her make-up artist,
Mitsue Nakashio, who will paint willing workshop
participants in the Kabuki theater style.

Tales of Old
If you have an unpublished, unrecorded,
untold personal great story about life in
earlier days on the Big Island, please submit it
We are collecting stories for a possible
Volume II of "Aloha ‘Aina - Big Island Memories"
because response to the first book has been
tremendous. Many people have asked if there will
be another book of stories.
EHCC will archive your story. If we receive
enough stories our editors decide are suitable
for a second book, we may publish Volume II.
There’s no guarantee Volume II will be published
or that your story will be selected. If we
decide to publish, we will contact you if your
story is selected. If your story is not selected
we’ll contact to see if you want us to send your
story back to you or keep it in our archives for
possible future use.
If we don’t publish Volume II we may want to
publish a story on our website from time to
time, so that’s another possibility for sharing
We look forward to hearing from you!
Open: Monday - Friday 10am - 4pm
A huge collection of quality books has been
donated to sell for EHCC’s benefit. Subjects
include art, fiction, history and children’s
books. Please take advantage of this chance to
add to your literary collection while supporting
the arts in your community.
