Acting, not activism, will be on 'Long Hair' Leung Kwok-hung's agenda next month when he takes to the stage to tell his story and celebrate the life of Che Guevara. He will give five performances of a one-man show, May be Long Hair, May be Che Guevara, at the Hong Kong Arts Centre's Shouson Theatre between January 28 and 31. Guevara is Mr Leung's idol and T-shirts emblazoned with the face of the late South American revolutionary icon are one of his trademarks. Augustine Mok Chiu-yu, producer and co-director of the show, said Mr Leung would likely be singing revolutionary songs and paying musical tributes to Guevara. 'Long Hair may also tell the sensational side of his life, such as his love for his mother, who died this year in Guangdong, and his love story. The drama is going to be attractive because the deeds of both Leung and Guevara, who oppose injustice and inequality, are very inspiring,' Mr Mok said. In the show, the April 5th Action Group activist will tell the deeds of Guevara and his own experiences in Hong Kong's social movement since the mid-1970s. Guevara was born into a middle-class family in Argentina. He made a motor cycle tour of South America in 1951, during which he observed the plight of its people under authoritarian rule. In 1953 he earned a medical degree from the University of Buenos Aires. He joined Fidel Castro's guerilla war against Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista in the late 1950s. Guevara was appointed Cuba's minister of industry after Dr Castro came to power in 1959. An advocate of peasant-based revolution in developing countries, Guevara left the island in 1965 to set up a guerilla force in Bolivia, where he was killed two years later. Mr Leung, 47, and 10 theatre staff will leave next week on a month-long trip to Cuba, Argentina and Bolivia to gather information about Guevara and get a feel for Latin American countries. The show, in Cantonese, will be presented by the Asian People's Theatre Festival Society.
