  • Mixing the old and the new, the public and the personal, we learn unexpected details about a human being and could only imagine the rest.  
    In the words of Ho Tam: In my last trip to Hong Kong, I was met by this attractive young man at the airport. I thought he was just one of those travelling businessmen but soon found out that he was in fact in the police force, and also knew how to play his Chinese instrument (and to play it well). He was a child prodigy who had performed around the world but now made his living as a businessman (part-time) and as a policeman (part-time). As a result, I asked him to do a performance for me and this how the tapes was made.
