Hoyingfung is the founder and artistic director of Ho Bit Goon, a cultural hub for self-empowerment established in April 2011. The idea sprang from his transformative experience with Theatre Fanatico (1996-2011) , a company he founded in exploring the enigma of contemporary society through the form and distinctive style of dramatic visual poems, weaving texts, songs, dance, drama, objects, installations and moving images all in one as critical present in total performance.

He has participated in over 150 stage productions. His works are mostly constructed with specific artistic framework that based on drama, dance, and theatrical experimentations on contemporary social and cultural issues, intended to establish alternative theatre of the poets, with special exploratory journey looking into the aesthetics of Chinese Opera and the multimedia nature in mapping the landscape of the performing body, a special territory with cultural bearings of diversified social and cultural implications. His works were once presented in more than 13 international cities and had won critical acclaims and awards at home and aboard.
As a writer, he has published a number of books on theatre arts and related cultural studies, including “Thoughts on Heading West,” “Songs of Hearts: 36 Letters to Youngsters,” ” Words of Play: Looking Beyond The Seventh Drawer,” and “Here & Now: A smokeless journey into Springtime at Wuhu Street”.
