The Maui News
LET HULA FLOW THROUGH YOU during the world premiere of “Kulanihako‘i: Living Waters” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Castle Theater. Created by Na Kinimakalehua — a group comprising master kumu hula Hokulani Holt, Keali‘i Reichel and Pali Ahue, along with emerging kumu hula Ulalia Woodside, Kauhilonohonua Padilla and Robert Ke‘ano Ka‘upu — the hula drama hails the significance of water. Through dance, chant, storytelling and dramatic interpretation, the performance will immerse viewers in the many facets of water and the relationship among the ocean, land, sky and all living things. Stories from epic Hawaiian myths, such as the mystical lake Kulanihako‘i, from which all life flows, provide the backdrop to the presentation as told through the eyes of contemporary Native Hawaiians. “Generations of ancestral water deities perpetuate a cycle that lives in each of us— these waters are ancient, and these waters are alive with us today — these are living waters,” the performance echoes. Two years in the making, “Kulanihako‘i: Living Waters,” with its artistic team, cast and crew, will travel to New Jersey immediately following its Maui debut, and then return to Hawaii for shows on Hawaii Island, Lanai, Molokai, Kauai and Oahu. Tickets are $12, $32 and $40 (plus applicable fees). Call the MACC box office at 242-7469 or order online at
