Moves

Moves In The Middle of The NightMoves is the story of a tenement house in Chinatown in downtown Honolulu. It is known as Hale Quino, named after the first owner, a Filipino-Hawaiian. There are thirteen units, twelve are occupied by a mixed group of persons. There are also six persons who visit, help at, or are interested in the group and the building; one is a rich woman who wants to tear it down, and joined to her other parcels, she wants to build a 14-story highrise named after herself.

“Moves” flows with the twelve tenants getting together, some late and some on time, at night. These twelve lay out food, drink coffee and tea, and tell stories. One or two of them drink alcohol. But most of all, they play original compositions and add their form of music to each gathering. They do it once a week, every Saturday. It is their way of going to church. They care for one another, visit each other during the week, but they all live for music and sharing. They transform into new persons the minute that piano starts.
