Dance | Hong Kong Literature

Très léger《輕飄飄》
“Hong Kong has New Territories, Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, but not Cecilia.”

 

Très léger is a duet in response to a seminal piece of Hong Kong literature – Cecilia.

 

It is the short story that launched the writing career of Dung Kai-cheung. Hailed as Hong Kong’s own Italo Calvino, Dung’s lyrical, dreamlike urban tales are landmarks of our city’s literary landscape. His prose – fluid, rhythmic, evocative – invites readers to shift effortlessly between characters and perspectives.

 

“Why should I give up my true, innocent nature to pursue a frigid and formal beauty?” Let’s start from this sentence!

 

Perhaps there is a Cecilia in everyone’s heart. He/She is very beautiful, like a stream of spring water, unique and full of character. Perhaps there should not be a Cecilia in our hearts, because he/she does not know how to write the word “ugly” – it is absolutely polluted water that affects the ecology and is not worth a single glance. Could I become or possess him/her? I ask my father, my mother, my teachers and the experts. They all say, “There are only Hong Kong, Kowloon and the New Territories, but not Cecilia in Hong Kong.” Finally, as I am riding the ferry in the middle of the Victoria Harbour, I find the answer in my heart.
