The Pa’akai We Bring
April 24-May 3
Produced by Honolulu Theatre for Youth (Honolulu, Hawaii)
This original production introduces young audiences to the Native Hawaiian relationship to pa’akai (salt). Pa’akai is food, medicine, a sacrament, and a treasured gift. The play follows multiple generations of salt farmers on Kauai, blending ancient stories, hula, original live music, and audience participation. The Pa’akai We Bring is a restorative experience for a multi-generational audience.
