Cabaret Singing to the Tune of Hong Kong’s “Crazy Rich Culcha”
“Where are you from? Where are you REALLY from?”
This trivial bit of information seems to be useful only while filling in application forms. However, what else does our place of ancestry represent? Other than a few choice slangs, Hong Kong people are all but detached from the dialects spoken fluently among the older generations. The multi-talented trio Yuri Ng, Anna Lo and Rick Lau have co-created the cabaret LauZone in “SPOTLIGHT: A Season of Performing Arts” in 2021, singing tribute to the lives and memories of the melting pot known as Hong Kong as well as our roots and inherited legacy.
Through the music videos with three melodic songs selected from the production: True Bias, One Way Ticket and Men are Birds, Birds are Men, the trio continue to examine this city’s bittersweet relationship with music and dialects.
