CHUK Edwin Yin Man (b. 1996, Hong Kong; currently based in Hong Kong) graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts of Hong Kong Baptist University in 2018. With photography and theatre as his primary mediums, places, everyday objects, and memory are often the shared themes in his works. Currently, he is a full-time performer and artistic coordinator of Danny Yung from the experiential theatre company Zuni Icosahedron. (2022 - ).
CHUK often wanders and revisits the outskirts adjacent to the city but are often overlooked. Photography is a process for him to open up his physical awareness and explore the place of being in the moment in the context of being detached from everyday living. In 2020, he was shortlisted for Hong Kong International Photo Festival’s Photographer Incubator Project and successfully hosted his first solo exhibition Road Signs, Lamp Posts, Trees. His graduation work “The Place We Have Never Remembered” (2018) received the Academy of Visual Arts Award.
He has received training from the Western and Eastern streams, including Jacques Lecoq, Jerzy Grotowski, Chinese Tai Chi, Japanese Butoh, etc., focusing on the collective creation of devised theatre. In 2018, he completed a two-year Professional Physical Theatre Youth Training Programme by Tang Shu-wing Theatre Studio. Later in 2021, he completed The Circus Theatre Group’s psychophysical performance course led by Andy Ng Wai Shek with over four hundred hours of lessons and practices.

The troupe’s first performance Far Far Away joined the Let’s Be Together Art Festival x Hong Kong and received the Adelaide Fringe Tour Ready Award co-presented by Adelaide Fringe Festival.
