Introduction

Ms. Hathor Wai is the only female face-changing performer in Hong Kong, and she has earned a lot of fame although she is still a young artist. Wai Shui-Kwan is her father. After years of practice, she has introduced creative elements into the culture of face-changing, such as cartoon animation, modern dance, martial arts as well as modern music bands. Bold innovations and constant improvements have made her performances even more diverse and wonderful. In addition to new elements, she has also explored fresh experiences of traditional culture. During a performance tour with her father in Taiwan in 2010, they presented a remarkable breakthrough performance on a TV program. She set a fresh record of changing 32 faces; in May 2011, she broke the record with 35 faces and became the most popular female face-changing artist in Hong Kong.
