Hong Kong writer Ma Ka-Fai is no stranger to fans of contemporary Chinese literature. His first novel, Once Upon A Time in Hong Kong, describes a complicated love story between a Hong Kong gangster leader and a British intelligence officer. With his public charisma, the author will present the fierce and provocative story in his own captivating voice on stage, accompanied by a performance of Shostakovich and Bartók’s works, all specially curated to intensify this unique reading-and-listening experience on loyalty and betrayal.
