They are also increasingly sites of controversy structures restrict local access and use of harbor areas man scale. This thesis proposes a platform for performance that ... floating and traveling between the four major Hawaiian Islands within multiple sites, accommodating public frames industrial harbor activity rather than staging no Hawaii's (neo)-colonial grand narrative as a sexualized as an instrument to reflect the relationship between pr den mechanics of calculated and market-oriented production and the outward appearance of contrived reality. Relationships between audience, stage, and performer shift to reveal the production of the performance, and reinsert the audience as a part of the theatrical experience. The architecture is a stage set for the performance that is not limited to a fixed stage but happens throughout the venue as localized spectacle.
