About the Performance:

Presented in partnership with Honolulu Civil Beat, this event will explore our relationship to water with stories that honor Hawai‘i’s long and connected history with the ocean.  Hear from different generations of ocean masters and explore the meaning of watermen through stories about sport and competition, navigation, ocean safety, resource conservation and most of all a respect and reverence for our waters.

Hawaii Storytellers is a community-driven event series by Honolulu Civil Beat. These events feature real stories by real people and allow audiences to connect with their neighbors in a way that celebrates our diversity of thought and experiences. 

Theatre opens at 4pm for interactive activities inspired by the theme of watermen and a no-host bar.

Storytellers include:
Duane DeSoto, founder and CEO of Nā Kama Kai
Marcel Honore, reporter at Civil Beat
Jim Howe, director of the Honolulu Emergency Services Division
Crystal Thornburg-Homcy, surfing ambassador and filmmaker
Mike Town, Ocean Clinic Outrigger Canoe Specialist at Nā Kama Kai
Meira Va'a, Adaptive Waterwoman
