"The Story of Everything" by Kealoha @ Hawai`i Theatre (March 22nd)

"The Story of Everything" is an original creation story based on multiple knowledge systems. It explores the question "Where do we come from?" Through this work, the poet will dramatize explanations for human origin, drawing from sources as diverse and yet interconnected as the Big Bang Theory, disco, genetics, Michael Jackson, and the Kumulipo. It will explore how various cultural elements and scientific disciplines can be used to approach a question about existence that has challenged humans from the very beginning. Kealoha's performance traces the beginning of life from simple forms that evolve into complex relationships, and ends with a provocation: "Where do we go from here? What's next?" More...
