A MULTI-GENERATIONAL PLAY EXPLORING THE NATIVE HAWAIIAN RELATIONSHIP TO PA‘AKAI (SALT) WITH ANCIENT STORIES, HULA AND MUSIC
This original production introduces audiences to the Native Hawaiian relationship with pa‘akai (salt). Traditionally, pa‘akai is food, medicine, a sacrament and a treasured gift. The play follows a family with multiple generations of salt farmers on Kauai, mixing in ancient stories, hula, live music, original songs and plenty of audience participation into a tasty potluck of performance, joyously served up with aloha.
