Thirty of Hawai'i's professional dancers will perform dance sequences that represent personal experiences in "From the Horse's Mouth-Hawaii" at the University of Hawai'i-Manoa Kennedy Theatre tonight.

The diverse group of dancers, working with New York-based choreographers Tina Croll and Jamie Cunningham, will tell their stories through their own movements and in collaboration with other dancers, with themes that range from humorous to poignant as the performers relate moments of loss, joy, frustration and triumph.

The concert starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $30 general; $25 seniors, military, UH faculty and staff; $20 students; and $15 for UH-Manoa students with ID. Tickets are available at www.etickethawaii.com, UH ticket outlets, 944-2697 and at the Kennedy Theatre box office.
