        E Nana I Ke Kumu:Look To the Source

E Nana I Ke Kumu:Look To the Source

Utilizing the haku (weaving) of dance, poetry, story and music, this solo work portrays the story of contemporary souls searching to reclaim their heritage, their honor and the lost memories of a shattered homeland. exploding the images of the islands as a "simple care-free coconut and palm tree playground," these voices cry out their concern for Hawai'i's future. exploring cultural exploitation, racial prejudice, economic crises and fights over native lands, these characters search for the true Hawai'i. e Nana is a journey that travels from Hawai'i to the mainland and back asking the audience and the characters themselves to "look to the source."
