Maui Arts & Cultural Center presents Maui premiere of 'Pohaku'

KAHULUI, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Maui Arts & Cultural Center will present their Maui premiere of Pohaku by Christopher K. Morgan & Artists at the MACC's Castle Theater at 7:30 p.m. on April 14.

Pohaku is a dance theater piece that includes storytelling, hula, modern dance, classical music and projection design to explore compelling universal themes in the story of Hawaii's native people.

The work incorporates Morgan's own stories that are relevant to Hawai'i's living culture from the perspective of a first generation part-Hawaiian born and raised in California as a result of Hawaiian out-migration.

The performance will also feature Morgan's first choreography that incorporates his Native Hawaiian background and its cultural tradtions along with his modern dance training.

Tickets are available for $35 at the MACC Box Office, or call 242-SHOW.
