Welcome to Hawai’i, the Aloha state – a tropical paradise where everyone gets along. However, the reality for many residents is much different. Recent newcomers from Micronesia have fled their island nations due to environmental and economic pressures. Inspired by the stories of Micronesians living in Hawai’i today, 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 descendents of the original ocean navigators of the Pacific?
