Pohaku

 

The Hawaiian word for stone, Pōhaku explores universal themes in the story of Hawai‘i’s native people, including land loss and fractured identity. The performance, which combines the artistic elements of storytelling, hula, modern dance, classical music and projection design into one compelling performance, incorporates some of Morgan’s personal stories of culture and heritage, as well as those of his late cousin, kumu hula John Kaimikaua. A question-and-answer session with Morgan and his creative team will follow the performance.
