WCC Theatre 260 presents:

Tales of Ko'olaupoko

Tales of Koʻolaupoko breathes life into the stories of the Windward side following the travels of Kaulu in search of his brother Kaeha. We journey through the moku encountering sacred akua, kiaʻi, and people of the land. Three current-day Hawaiian youths help tell the tales making way for a fun, exciting adventure for the whole family to enjoy.

I ka ʻōlelo nō ke ola, i ka ōlelo nō ka make (In words there is life and in words there is death.) Haʻi moʻolelo (telling of stories) brings to life epic journeys, battles, and family history. Three modern day young Hawaiian students relate the epic of Kaulu’s birth, and the jealous rage of his older brother, who, envious of Kaulu’s prodigous mana, attempts to usurp him.  Along the way they share the origins of the pahu (drum), encounter mo’o, witness the brave voyage of Kila, tell tales of epic battles between Kaulu and a dog-man, giant shark, and the mighty gods Kane and Kanaloa. Through their sharing these stories of the Windward side live on—our history lives on. Koʻolaupoko e ʻola nō a mau aku ē.
