GET TO KNOW US

HI Arts Lab is Hawaiiʻs newest performing arts organization bringing multi- disciplinary music experiences to audiences. With the use of non-traditional venues, multiple art forms on stage at the same time, and experiences that are crafted from the moment you enter the space, we are throwing the challenge out to ourselves as well as our audiences to come with us on this ride. Even art forms that are not considered performative like fashion, architecture, food, & visual arts are welcome on our stage.

The performing and fine arts weren't always this isolated and regardless of the reasons getting there, it's time that the artists take the reins of the industry and bring innovation, collaboration, and inspiration back to the table. And with a uniquely Native Hawaiian voice, I hope to help bridge the gap between art forms of all kinds. 

 

Mahalo for your support so far, and I hope that you join us when we emerge from a nearly year-long moratorium on performances in 2021. We have some great ideas and fantastic Experiences ready to come your way. Keep your eyes listening, and your ears seeing. 

Until then, a hui hou!

Executive and Artistic Director

Our mission

To bring a variety of art forms together to create innovative and collaborative experiences. Focusing on non-traditional venues, we hope to challenge audiences to experience other forms of art even ones we don't consider performative. We also foster education in the arts community with programs that target all ages and abilities and that challenge our students.

Our core

We want to seduce more people back to experience all forms of art. We want to present productions that are topical and relevant to today's society and generation. We want to enjoy food and drink at shows and will always make this a priority! And we want to have fun - and to bring that fun to you as ticket-holders. 

Our vibe

Art never stands still and should never revel simply in what came before. But should challenge itself to make a statement about what comes after. We break rules and ruffle feathers. And it's not art until someone has a strong opinion about it.

Our promise

To keep you engaged, and to challenge your ideas of what can be done, and sometimes what should be done. To deliver topical NOW programming, and to let you help guide us to new and unchartered paths.
