Author Susan Stanton uses theatre to investigate the issues surrounding the TMT protests. Dramatizing the controversial Thirty Meter Telescope, Untitled TMT Project explores the intersections of the sacred, science, government, capitalism, and tradition. This play draws inspiration from interviews with kia‘i, government officials, activists, scientists, and community members, as well as visits to Pu‘uhonua o Pu‘uhuluhulu Maunakea and observatories. Weaving together hula and oli, original narrative, interviews, and news reports, Untitled TMT Project creates a theatrical space where many different voices and truths can coexist. Untitled TMT Project is a 360° view of the complex cultural and political forces that shape Hawai‘i.
