Nā Lei Hulu I Ka WēkiuSaturday Oct 20, 2018
Tickets: $35 - $90
Far removed from its ancestral home, can hula survive in unlikely places? Nā Lei Hulu says yes, emphatically. Whether in the dusty plains of Black Rock Desert or the infamous yard of San Quentin State Prison - hula thrives. Nā Lei Hulu's newest production takes us not just to the desert and the prison, but to the streets of New York City and the venerated stage of the San Francisco Opera House, offering those in the audience to witness an authentic expression of culture that is inclusive and beguiling. Joining Nā Lei Hulu will be Hōkū Hanohano Award winners Kūpaoa as well as Kahulanui, winner of this year's Hōkū for Jazz Album of the Year. This Hawaiian big-band orchestra will set the stage afire with a ferocious blast of swinging Hawaiian jazz and Lindyhopping hula dancers. I MUA - Hula in Unusual Places is a vibrant reminder of how tradition and innovation can coexist in surprising and meaningful ways.

Cross the Golden Gate Bridge and follow signs indicating Downtown San Francisco. Stay to the left and take the Marina exit; you’ll see the sign overhead. While you might be tempted to take a right at the first stop light (Lyon Street) and pull directly into the Palace of Fine Arts, pass the Lyon Street entrance and proceed straight on Marina Boulevard. Then:
NOTE: Avoid bearing left on Marina Boulevard; that stretch of Marina Boulevard turns into an onramp for Highway 101 and the Golden Gate Bridge. If you inadvertently end up on the approach to the Bridge, don’t worry; you’ll have a chance to exit to the right just before the toll plaza. You can then make your way back to the Palace of Fine Arts through the Presidio or retry the directions from above.
Cross the Bay Bridge. Follow the signs to the 9th Street exit. Stay in the right-hand lane. Go one block and turn right onto 9th Street. Stay in the left-hand lane. Immediately after Market Street, veer left onto Hayes Street. Then:
Take Highway 101 North to the Market Street/Van Ness exit. Take Van Ness to Lombard (look for signs to the Golden Gate Bridge). Turn left onto Lombard. Once on Lombard, get into the right-hand lane. Then:
Follow 19th Avenue through Golden Gate Park; 19th Avenue becomes Park Presidio Boulevard on the other side of the Park. Follow signs for the Highway 101 Detour. Then:
The Palace of Fine Arts Theatre has convenient access to public transportation. We are accessible by San Francisco Muni buses #30, #43, #28, and #29.

If you’re taking BART, get off at the Montgomery Street station, walk one half-block up Market Street to Third Street, and catch the #30 Stockton bus on the corner.
Virtually all downtown-bound Golden Gate Transit buses stop nearby the Theatre. Ask your driver for directions or call Golden Gate Transit Information at 511 (toll-free) or 415-455-2000 (outside the Bay Area).
