At the age of 11, William Lau emigrated with his family from Hong Kong to Montreal, and since then he has been training to perform the traditional role in Chinese Operatic Dance of Nandan, a male playing female characters. Lau is an engaging and committed dancer, going so far as to seek an apprenticeship with the legendary Shanghai Nandan Song Changrong. MacDonald has successfully captured the complexities and charms of Lau’s life as he lives it across cultures and performs across genders. David McIntosh.
