Masters of the Currents
BY LEILANI CHAN & OVA SAOPENG
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH UNIVERSITY OF UTAH’S PACIFIC ISLANDS STUDIES INITIATIVE AND THE BEVERLEY TAYLOR SORENSON ARTS LEARNING PROGRAM
Inspired by the stories of Micronesians living in Hawai’i today, Masters of the Currents follows the story of three Micronesian youth who have fled their island nations due to environmental and economic pressures. Developed by TeAda Productions, a pioneer in social justice theater concentrating on communities of color, Masters of the Currents is a theatrical journey that takes us from remote island nations to urban cities, from ocean water passageways to paved asphalt highways. As the waters of our planet rise, what can we learn from these descendants of the original ocean navigators of the Pacific?
