Brava presents a Residency and Continental US Premiere of TeAda Productions
Created by Leilani Chan and Ova Saopeng
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19 – 8PM
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20 – 3PM
Calling upon the shared histories of refugees in Hawai’i, Masters of the Currents follows the story of recent newcomers from Micronesia who have fled their island nations due to environmental and economic pressures. The play centers around three Micronesian youth who must overcome conflicts of identity to be accepted by their peers while still holding on to the history and rich cultural traditions of their ancestral islands of Micronesia. Masters of the Currents takes audiences from remote island nations to urban cities, from ocean water passageways to paved asphalt highways.
