Written and performed by Keo Woolford

Directed by Roberta Uno

Hula choreography by Robert Cazimero

Hip-hop choreography Rokafella

I Land expands on the Hawaiian tradition of talk story, combining theater and dance, bringing dramatic narrative, comedy, hula, and hip-hop dance together to tell a unique and compelling story. Inspired by, but departing from autobiography, I Land is Keo's exploration of the intersections, collisions, and reverberations he has observed at the nexus of these cultures.

Co-commissioned by Ma-Yi Theater Company, Asia Society in New York City and Diverseworks.
