FREE | FAMILY-FRIENDLY | OUTDOOR | LIVE MUSIC | INDIGENOUS AMERICAN HULA

Choreographer and performer Christopher K. Morgan performs Pōhaku, a unique dance and hula performance with live music by electric cellist Wytold and Hawaiian chanter/percussionist Elsie Kaleihulukea Ryder. The show tells the story of Hawaii’s colonial past through the choreographer’s personal story of his ache for the land he is from, but never lived in.

Christopher K. Morgan & Artists (CKM&A) is a professional contemporary dance company serving as a vehicle for Morgan’s choreographic exploration of social and cultural issues. Voted Washington, DC’s Best Dance Company in the 2015 CityPaper annual poll, the company has garnered support from The New England Foundation for the Arts, The National Performance Network, and The Native Arts and Culture Foundation, among others. CKM&A’s work has been declared “direct, transcendent and entrancing” by Pulitzer Prize-winning dance critic Sarah Kaufman of The Washington Post and “charming and poignant” by Jennifer Dunning of The New York Times.


This performance is part of The Land on Which We Dance. Learn more about the series and full schedule of events here.
