A kīpuka is a place surrounded by lava, protected, and able to flourish. Finding that space with a friend, with a family member or within oneself is the message of T-Shirt Theatre’s “Kipuka: Teen Crisis Project” which is both a performance and video initiative.

- Tuesday, November 7, 9:45 a.m., All interested Elementary Schools

Dear Students, Parents, Schools, Friends,
T-Shirt Theatre is proud to present a world premiere of “Kipuka: Teen Crisis Project”. This fall, we’re tackling bullying, cyber-bullying, and teen suicide. A ‘kipuka’ is an oasis in a lava field. Even when the lava of negativity is raging and all seems futile, there are people and groups that got your back, that are sanctuaries from the heat. The Gift Foundation of Hawaii is funding this year-long initiative, challenging us to take our message via social media and video outside of our Kalihi home. Stay tuned.
You are invited to bring your class to see “Kipuka” on the dates mentioned above.
This is a subject of grave importance to many of Hawaii’s young people, and we hope this performance and the subsequent video series that will follow will reach kids who are grappling with bullying, and that there is a KIPUKA in their lives.
