About the event
Taimane returns to Hawai‘i Theatre Center on August 25 with a grand ensemble poised to deliver a feast for the senses and soul with a one-night-only presentation of Hawaiki, a theatrical odyssey written, scored and produced by the international ‘ukulele star and composer. Music, dance, costume, aerial acrobatics and spoken word will transform Hawaii Theatre’s historic stage into a mystical orb and transport attendees to Polynesia’s spiritual home.
“Hawaiki” is known throughout Polynesia as the place where the souls of Pacific islanders originate and return and where Gods and Goddesses live. Hawaiki is also the title of Taimane’s latest album on which she tells the story of a young woman, Maluhia, thrust into a wild adventure across the island’s shores and deep into its caves and underworld. Through encounters with Kanaloa, Savea and other deities, Maluhia’s eyes awaken, finding her mana and freeing her spirit to soar.
