Description

Choreographer Christopher Morgan danced hula as a child in California, far from his family’s Native Hawaii. As he developed a body of work in modern dance, he longed to connect his Native Hawaiian artistic and personal roots to his contemporary work. Pohaku is a dance theater piece bringing together storytelling, hula, modern dance, classical music, and projection design to explore compelling universal themes in the story of Hawaii’s native people, including land loss and fractured identity. The work incorporates Christopher Morgan’s own stories to reflect these larger themes. The Hawaiian word for stone, Pohaku is inspired in part by Morgan’s cousin, Kumu Hula (hula master) John Kaimikaua. Come see modern dance with a local flavor, at it’s best!Hawaii Theatre, 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $47, $57.
