Cabaret LauZone Sings 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 slang words, Hong Kong people are all but detached from the dialects spoken fluently among the older generations. To tackle this bittersweet relationship, the multi-talented trio of Yuri Ng, Anna Lo and Rick Lau present "LauZone" - a poignant yet playful cabaret on the rich variety of Chinese dialects. The premiere of "LauZone" in the 2021 Tai Kwun SPOTLIGHT: A Season of Performing Arts was a sold-out and much praised success, and Rick Lau is nominated for Best Actor at the 13th Hong Kong Theatre Libre Awards for this performance.

“Lau Zone” is the Cantonese colloquial term used towards non-Cantonese natives, which essentially includes most Hong Kongers of previous generations, as most of them were immigrants to the city. So, get ready for the euphony of dialects, music, and laughter as Rick Lau and Anna Lo shine in a cabaret show that sings tribute to the lives and memories of the melting pot known as Hong Kong as well as to our collective roots and inherited legacy.
