Event description

Description

Civil Beat in partnership with Hawaii Arts Alliance and Waiwai Collective presents an evening of live storytelling by members of our local community on the theme of death and dying.

Each storyteller will share an account of remarkable past events in their life, illuminating their personal relationship with matters related to mortality and life's impermanence. Together, we'll take in these narratives of strength, love, loss, science, spirituality and grief in a safe, intimate venue.

The storytellers receive professional coaching from Reiko Ho, a local director, performer, writer and sensei.


Storytellers include:

  • Edward Halealoha Ayau, expert in repatriation of Native Hawaiian remains

  • Dr. Rae Seitz, hospice and palliative care medical specialist

  • Cortney Gusick, owner of Pahiki Eco-Caskets

  • Dr. Charles "Chuck" Miller, clinical oncologist who came out of retirement to assist Kaiser Permanente Hawaii with the new medical aid in dying law

  • Hiro Ito, program director of Kids Hurt Too Hawaii

  • Hosted by Brittany Lyte, reporter for Civil Beat
