A while back, David and I marvelled at Hans Davis’ amazing shadow puppetry on Youtube. Belgian-born Davis has built his career by creating an amazing shadow display — just with his hands.

When we discovered that Hans Davis was in Hong Kong as part of the free Moon Festival celebrations hosted by a local shopping centre, we took note of the times and made an effort to see the show. Happily, the times coincided with our travel back home from visiting the Peak, and we met Craig at a train station along the way, so the whole Harvey family was together again.

Although the crowd around the stage was quite thick, we had arrived earlier and pegged our spot at a balcony so our view was unobstructed.

It was wonderful to see this sort of world-class act in Hong Kong with the Harveys!
