THE WATCHER OF WAIPUNA


FAN FAVORITE BY GARY PAK

MARCH 21 – APRIL 20, 2019


Artist Notes from Ryan: I’ve seen the enemy and the enemy is paranoid. And just because I’m paranoid doesn’t mean ohana isn’t out to get us.

Gilbert Sanchez is the Watcher of Waipuna, defending his tiny corner of paradise against evil commercial expansion and greedy family members. Based on Gary Pak’s short story, this local fairy tale-like parable includes a chorus of housewives, supernatural elements, and examines the powerful connection between humans and the environment—loyalty to our land, connections to place, corporate development, and local displacement.
