Actor/Director

Directed by Daniel A. Kelin II, “Moa a Mōʻī” has its moments of eeriness and violence, but there are also welcome bursts of humor and romance as well. When Umi confronts a ferocious shark god, it is through flashing red light and the clattering and choreography of large wooden sticks held by actors that bring the beast to life. The visualization there is inspired. Fans of Hawaiian legends will get the biggest kick out of “Moa a Mōʻī.” Other audiences will find the production an illuminating chapter of Hawaiian culture.
