About CAATA ConFest: Kuʻu ʻĀina, Kuʻu Piko, Kuʻu Kahua: Return to the Source
The contributions of theater practitioners from Hawai’i have largely gone unrecognized by American Theater. From being founders and original cast members of every established Asian American Theater or play on the continent, to any broadway play featuring Asian American actors, artists from Hawai’i have been there. It is time to come back to Kuʻu ‘Āina (land), Kuʻu Piko (center), and Kuʻu Kahua (stage).
This year’s ConFest will center the voices of Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander theater practitioners. Attendees will be exposed to the idea of what is like to create theater in a state where Asian Americans are in the majority. And be introduced to the thriving theater community of Hawai’i, where Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander faces on stage is the NORM not the exception.
The Consortium of Asian American Theaters & Artists (CAATA) envisions a strong and sustainable Pan Asian American community, that welcomes and includes Central/West Asian, Arab, Middle Eastern, and Pacific Islander American theatre communities, all of which are an integral presence in national culture—evocative of our past, declarative of our present, and innovative towards our future. Our mission is to advance the field of Pan Asian and Pacific Islander American theater through a national network of organizations and artists. We collaborate to inspire learning and sharing of knowledge, and resources to promote a healthy, equitable, and sustainable artistic ecology. We hold national conferences and festivals biennially in different parts of the country, reaching as wide a range of Pan Asian and Pacific Islander American populations and communities as possible. CAATA held its first-ever National Asian American Theater Conference in Los Angeles in 2006. The most recent Conference and Festival was held in Chicago in 2018.
