"I had a big concept at the very beginning, and the whole team modified the use of the set during rehearsals.

"The idea came from the limited space in Hong Kong. We live in small space, but we are distanced from other people."

Wong, who was born in Hong Kong, did his first public performance when he was in secondary school. It was a show based on the play Hamlet directed by a UK director, and he realized then that "the world is very big, and there are many ways to share stories".

The director, who graduated from the School of Dance at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, later studied at Ecole Internationale de Theatre Jacques Lecoq in Paris, France, a school of physical theater which was founded by French mime actor and theater director Jacques Lecoq in 1956.

Wong returned to Hong Kong in 2014, after four years in Paris.

But, in 2010, Wong set up a theater, Theatre de la Feuille, in Paris, which he later moved to Hong Kong.
