Hawaii Theatre Center presents CHRISTOPHER MORGAN & ARTISTS: POHAKU

Pōhaku 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. 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. Come see modern dance with a local flavor, at it's best!

Hawaii Theatre Center presents RELEASE THE HOUNDS: AN EVENING WITH JULIAN LAGE & CHRIS ELDRIDGE | AOIFE O'DONOVAN

A night of intrepid songwriting and acoustic innovation, beginning with Aoife O’Donovan at center stage. O’Donovan draws from her catalogue of songs, played as she wrote them; with just her acoustic guitar and voice. The Washington Post describes her singing as "almost too gorgeous for its own good." Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge follow with their masterly acoustic performance typical of the virtuosic duo, known for pushing the envelope of folk, bluegrass, and jazz. Showcasing, as The New Yorker writes, a "familiarity with the fretboard…so extravagant and capacious that they bring flourishes to this music that it simply hasn’t enjoyed before," their performance is sure to astound. The evening concludes with all three on stage together in an aural-hootenanny.
