That's PRD takes a look at the best of the month in Hong Kong:
Feb 15-16: Philip Glass’ David Bowie

It is hard to overstate the influence that David Bowie has had on modern music. Here, another awe-inspiringly influential musician, minimalist composer Philip Glass, takes to the stage to interpret Bowie’s Heroes, the second in his Berlin Trilogy made during the late ’70s. Described as a sincere tribute to Bowie’s life and work, this show should be a musical force.
Feb 17: Hong Kong Marathon

Whether you are taking part or just acting as a spectator, attend this massive marathon event and you might come away with new motivation for your post Chinese New Year life. Registration is most certainly closed, but you can join the crowds at Nathan Road to watch the runners set off on their 42-kilometer journey around the city.
Sun Feb 17, 5.45am; free entry. Nathan Road.
Feb 21: Craig David

Craig David has had a whirlwind career. While some may credit him as the man who brought UK garage to the mainstream, alongside Artful Dodger, others remember him solely for his appearance on the TV show Bo’ Selecta! Either way, you can’t deny that the man has bars. He’s gone through a musical rebirth of late, with his last album, The Time is Now, seeing him team up with the likes of Kaytranada and Ella Mai.
Feb 22-24: Vegetarian Food Asia

Hikari Shimoda’s work is at once cute, absorbing and attractive, but beneath the doe-eyed children that populate her pop art portraits resides a certain worldly urgency. She uses her anime and manga influences to probe deeper questions about youth, natural disasters and more. Catch her this month for her first-ever solo exhibition in Hong Kong.
Tue-Sat until March 19, 11am-7pm; free entry. Over the Influence.
