Yeung Chun Yip Adrian is one of Hong Kong’s most active independent multimedia designers and director in the performing arts. Yeung was originally trained in computer engineering at the University of Hong Kong where he graduated in 1998. He worked as a software engineer prior to becoming a full-time multimedia designer in the early 2000s. Since 2007, Yeung has contributed to over 50 productions and collaborated with prominent artists and arts groups from theatre, dance and music in Hong Kong.
He directed “m@rc0 p0!0 endg@me” (給下一輪 (虛擬) 盛世的備忘錄) in 2021 which provide hybrid narrative experience to the audience combining VR technology and live performance. In 2017 he directed Jennifer Haley‘s “The Nether” (禁式極樂園), received critical acclaim for the examination of the current ethical issue of latest virtual reality technology. From 2012 to 2016, Yeung directed a series of works, experimenting the boundary between theatre and film. Inspired by the life and films of legendary comedian Charlie Chaplin, he directed “Modern Times” (2016), exploring the motion capture technology with mime movement. In “Landscape of Ozu” (2015) and “Antonioni Conjecture”(2012), Yeung used live camera technology on stage to recreate the aesthetics of famous film director Yasujiro Ozu and Michelangelo Antonioni.
His works explore new technologies within the context of theatre production. He examines the relationship between the world of mediated reality and the liveness of performances, with the technologies like open source programming, mobile phone, projection mapping, motion capture, multiple live camera, etc. For example, in his collaborations with Sang Ji-jia, he developed his own software to control multiple cameras with live effect and editing and different layers of projection mapping, which heighten the choreography to cinematic experience. And in his work with Gaybird Leung, he developed a network system allowing the artist to interact with the audience using the smartphone creating a soundscape in the whole auditorium.
He was awarded an ACC fellowship in 2014 to further develop his abilities in this regard while exploring cutting-edge advances in the field of new media in the U.S.
He was senior lecturer (media design) in school of Theatre and Entertainment Arts of Hong Kong Performing Arts Academy from 15 Jan 2018 to 31 Aug 2020.
