Conceived and performed by internationally acclaimed Poet Laureate Kealoha, The Story of Everything is an epic poem that dramatizes explanations for human origin, drawing from sources as diverse as the Big Bang theory, disco, Michael Jackson and the Kumulipo – an 18th-century Hawaiian creation story.
Kealoha explores how science and culture can be used to approach universal questions that have challenged humans from the very beginning – where do we come from, and where do we go from here? Join us for a journey through the past 13.7 billion years in this multi-media performance that encourages us to be better stewards of the earth and of each other.
