Poonsan (Calvin Poon) has been richly nourished by Cantonese. Through the decades, he’s been composing lyrics, writing movie scripts, directing films, and giving live soccer commentaries, all in Cantonese.
Collaborating with seven musicians, Poonsan will take the audience to taste the flavors of the city through witty and hilarious parodies of some of the most familiar Cantonese titles.
About 20 pieces of derivative works will be presented at the show. The spicy and the non-spicy. The spicy refers to titles that align perfectly with reality, including some of the socio-political issues that concern our citizens. The non-spicy refers to heart-warming titles which touch every soul.'
