Choreographer Morgan danced hula as a child in California, far from his family’s Native Hawaii. For Pōhaku, an evening-length solo dance, Morgan brings together storytelling, hula, modern dance, classical music, and projection design. He incorporates his personal stories into the larger story of Hawaii’s native people. Pōhaku features live music by Kumu Hula Elsie Kaleihulukea Ryder and classically trained electric cellist Wytold. In addition to being Artistic director of his dance company  Christopher K. Morgan and Artists, Morgan is also the Director of the Dance Omi International Dance Collective residency in Columbia County, NY.

On Sunday, July 16th Christopher Morgan will be offering a special workshop at PS21 entitled Stone and Stories where he will share stories about the role of stones in traditional Hawaiian culture and his own life. This workshop is open to participants of all ages, backgrounds and experiences, no movement experience necessary!

Christopher Morgan’s performances and workshop are made possible by a New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project Touring Award, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
