Mo`olelo means story in Hawaiian. Mo`olelo Performing Arts Company was selected as the inaugural Resident Theatre Company at La Jolla Playhouse. The Company is a community-focused, socially-conscious, professional theatre organization dedicated to broadening the scope of San Diego's cultural environment by telling powerful stories that are as diverse as the islands of Hawaii. Night Sky is now playing at La Jolla Playhouse. It is the story of Anna, a brilliant astronomer. When a car accident renders her aphasic, her speech becomes a hodgepodge of disconnected words alternately poetic, funny, confusing and profound. She and her family must fight through the black holes of her mind and journey from her night sky into an unfamiliar world and a new language. (above Nicole Gabriella Scipione, Brian MacKay & Seema Sueko) Its mission is to create new works based on research within various communities, produce lesser-known works by master and contemporary playwrights, and educate youth.
