Virtual Tour

"Under the Blue" is an interactive, multi-sensory performance specifically designed for young people with developmental disabilities and their caregivers. This piece is inspired by the works of Solomon Enos, Carol Bennet and Tadashi Sato.

This immersive community art installation explores the various zones of the ocean. Inspired by phytoplankton, Native Hawaiian artist-in-residence Solomon Enos encouraged people of all ages to make dots and dashes on the wall, which became the backdrop of an ocean-like performance venue to be utilized by Honolulu Theatre for Youth.
