Tri Ka Tsai
/traɪˈ kɑ tsɐi/ noun.
Definition: A trilingual Gen X or millennial living in the post-colonial Hong Kong who speaks Cantonese, English and Putonghua.

Co-created by the multi-talented artists Yuri Ng, Anna Lo and Rick Lau, the original Hong Kong style cabaret performance Tri Ka Tsai examines this city’s bittersweet relationship with Cantonese, English and Putonghua. Mastering English had long been considered a ticket to success, and Hong Kong has groomed generations of “English-speakers” who spice up the language with their unique Cantonese accents and cadences. This was all lovely and well until we all suddenly realised that struggling with English wasn't enough, as struggling with Putonghua is now as important as ever...
In this bizarre yet unique trilingual environment of Hong Kong, how do Anna and Rick position themselves? And for that matter, how do we? Come on over and see if Anna and Rick can figure it out, and maybe you'll see Anna show off her Chinglish, or maybe you'll cry simultaneous tears of joy and horror at Rick's “Cantonghua”...don't know ah, you come see see la!
