The exhibit takes its theme from the museum's current exhibit, "Rebecca Lewis Law: Awakening," an immersive installation in two of the museum's galleries that celebrates Hawai'i's deep connection to native and imported flowers. Cherry Blossom Cabaret will join world-class fusion belly dancers of Shakti Dance Movement and aerial performers of Volari Aerial Burlesque to celebrate the beauty of flowers and women.
