The first Poet Laureate of Hawai`i and an internationally acclaimed poet and storyteller, Kealoha has performed throughout the world – from the White House to the `Iolani Palace to Brazil and Switzerland. His performances combine poetry, storytelling, movement, music, theater and interactive speaking. He has written hundreds of poems, with many of them used in classrooms, forensic competitions, workshops, lectures, corporate events and weddings.

In addition to his evening performance on the Whittier, Kealoha will host a workshop earlier in the day for island youth designed to expose them to performance poetry, give them a hands-on writing experience and inspire them to find their own poetic voice.

Kon-Tiki

This is the Academy Award-winning film of an astonishing adventure, a journey spanning 4300 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean by raft. Intrigued by Polynesian folklore, Norwegian biologist Thor Heyerdahl suspected that the South Sea Islands had been settled by an ancient race from thousands of miles to the east, led by the mythical hero Kon-Tiki. He knew that the trade winds and ocean currents off the South-American coastline bear in the direction of Polynesia. It was Heyerdahl’s contention that pre-Columbian Polynesian natives had regularly made trips across the ocean in similar rafts. 

To prove his theory, in 1947 Heyerdahl set sail in the Kon-Tiki, a tiny balsa-wood raft, successfully completing the long journey from Peru to Tahiti. Filmed en route with 16-millimeter camera equipment, Kon-Tiki was originally released in Sweden in tandem with the publication of Heyerdahl’s book about the expedition.

Running time:  124 minutes

San Juan County Fairgrounds, Marie Boe Bldg.

Stage Left is thrilled to announce a four week run of the dynamic, thought-provoking, Tony Award-winning play, "RED," by John Logan. Although set in the studio of abstract painter Mark Rothko, in 1950s New York, this play speaks a universal language about a generation passing the baton, about ethics and art, about the ferocity of artistic passion—all seen through the father/son, mentor/student relationship of Rothko and his apprentice, Ken.

Daniel Mayes returns as Rothko;  and this year Stage Left introduces Seattle's Jonathan Shue as Ken.  

Dates & Show Times: October 24 - November 16,  Thursday & Friday & Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 4:00 p.m.
