On April 13, 2011, writer Deborah O. Melvin wrote a nice article for the Big Island Weekly newspaper entitled,”The Shattered Vase, A Hula Drama”, about the late H.R.H. Princess Ka’iulani of Hawai’i and the new hula dance, The Shattered Vase by Kumu Paul Neves.
According to Ms. Melvin the new hula by Mr. Neves, “…focuses on the princess’adult life, her uncle King Kalakaua’s death, her aunt, Queen Lili’uokalani’s imprisonment in ‘Iolani Palace, and her trip from schooling in England to Washington, D.C.”
