Celebrity

 

 At the theater and drama department at Leeward CC, it's all monkey business. Except, that is, when it comes to work. In conjunction with professional dance theatre company, Monkey Waterfall, students had the unique opportunity to take part in a rich performing arts experience, culminating with the on-stage performance of "Celebrity."

Artist Statement: As most artist’s my inspiration comes from the world around me as well as everyday life. I try to find things that may seem mundane and show them in a different light as the beautiful objects they are. "Silhouette" was a picture of opportunity, taking a new perspective on everyday things.

Through The Broken By: Lono J. Willis


Live the life through that broken window
See what he sees
A mutter-silence of darkness
Veils “what used to be.”

Paint Fumes For Two By Jason Oliveros


Paths caught
In astronomical proportions
Of methodical contortions.
Dispersing endorphins,
Conversing over depth and density.
Building a connection of immense intensity.
Our obvious discrepancies
Only seem to feed a
Mystic chemistry,
As Krylon collisions breed
Artistic tendencies,
Giving me an influx
Of creative energy.

It’s Not Always About Me by Elizabeth K. Alakai


It was the first morning in the two and a half years I had been working at Stoney’s Market that eight o’clock came and went without the punctual arrival of Mrs. Appleby. As the minutes ticked by I was surprised to realize I was feeling worried. I would have thought I’d be thrilled to have a day off from her sour face, but instead I found myself glancing at the door every couple of minutes, my imagination conjuring up all manner of dire scenarios. What could have happened to keep her from her rigid routine?

Hardships By Franalyn Galiza


I never knew how hard life could be until my immigrant parents spoke about their lives back in the Philippines. Morning began at 5 a.m. Get up, wash your face and brush your teeth. Go to your backyard and feed enough animals to fit into Noah's ark. Come home and wash up to prepare breakfast for what seems like a whole village. Then get ready to go to school knowing that you'd have to walk half a mile. After school, tired and ready to sleep, get home, check on the animals, clean up the house, prepare to cook for dinner. As night dawns, water our field of crops, vegetables and fruits. Once that's all done, it's time for bed, but in a few hours, it's time to do it all over again.

In Defense Of Education By Richie Mendoza Biluan


LCC. Last Chance College. We've all heard it. We all hate it. What institution snobs might not realize off-hand is that for some folks it's a first chance at college. First, second, last, or whatever attempt it may be at obtaining a higher education, what’s important is that our futures have a good chance. Even with this notion, we shouldn’t leave the quality of our education up to chances. Unfortunately, the circumstances present themselves to be much worse. Without immediate action, we are leaving the quality of our education and essentially the potential of our futures to the wrath of poor decisions.
