HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii Theatre Center and the University of Hawaii Department of Theatre and Dance will collaborate for the first time to present the world premiere of "Eddie Wen' Go, The Story of the Upside-Down Canoe".
Adapted for stage by Marion Lyman-Mersereau from her inspirational children's book of the same title, and coinciding with Hokule'a's round-the-world voyage, this imaginative production uses hula, chant, masks and puppetry to tell the story of Eddie Aikau's act of sacrifice when Hokule'a capsized, through the eyes of sea creatures who watched from underneath the upside-down canoe. Slack key guitar virtuoso Danny Carvalho will compose the soundscaping and perform live at each show.
