Conquering the Sun

Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

Created by Jackie Pualani Johnson and fellow members of the Colorado Caravan at the University of Colorado in 1976
Directed by Kimo Apaka

Maui’s next feat is to stop the Sun Goddess Lā from moving so quickly across the sky. His mother, Hina, complains that her kapa for the lūʻau will not dry because the days are so short. With the help of his sister, Keahi, and others they meet along the way, Maui climbs to the top of the mountain and lassoes Lā with a rope made of their hair. Lā finally agrees to slow down, allowing the days to be longer in the summer and shorter in the winter.

Conquering the Sun is an amalgamation of several Hawaiian myths, created by the CU Colorado Caravan to help us all remember that working together is often more effective than working alone, and that helping others can be more profitable than just helping yourself!

This performance is suitable for children of all ages! Please note the 7:00pm start time for the evening performances!

Special Restrictions: Reserved seating. Tickets are $12 General, $7 Discount, $5 UHH/HCC Students w/ VALID ID and Children 17 & under. Call 932-7490 or order online at artscenter.uhh.hawaii.edu
