“This remarkable team imbues this first Hawaii-based Cirque du Soleil show with a foundation of cultural knowledge through the timeless stories that connect us back through the generations,” Sala said in a news release. “It is a privilege to collaborate with my incredibly talented colleagues, showcasing the exceptional skill and aesthetic of kanaka maoli, local Hawaii and Pasifika talent.
