Christopher Kau’i Morgan danced hula as a child in California, far from his family’s Native Hawaii. As Morgan developed a body of work in contemporary dance, he longed to connect his Native Hawaiian roots to his contemporary work. "Pōhaku" is a dance theater piece bringing together storytelling, hula, modern dance, classical music, and projections to explore the story of Hawaii’s native people, land loss and fractured identity. The full work includes live chant and percussion, electric cello, video projection, and scenery using Hawaiian kapa cloth.
