Billy Tang graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons) degree from the School of Technical Arts of The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts in 1997, majoring in theatre lighting design.
Tang has actively involved in over 250 theatrical projects and production as lighting designer and multi-media designer by major performing groups. The design work is showing around the world.
In 2010, together with Leo Cheung, Roy Szeto and Billy Tang established the ensemble “Luminal Art”. The initiative came from the need for stage lighting design and videography to work as a whole to get the best artistic result of stage works. The group wins the Best Lighting Design Award from the Hong Kong Federation of Drama Societies with The Hong Kong Repertory Theatre production Faust.
Tang was also on the technical team for digital re-mastering of the Shaw Brother Film Library and the design team for the Hong Kong Film Archive Exhibitions.
一九九七年獲香港演藝學院科藝學院頒授藝術(榮譽)學士學位。主修舞台燈光設計。校內曾獲 Pacific Lighting (HK) Ltd獎、夏柏祖紀念獎學金及億達時獎學金赴台灣學習劇場及建築顧問設計。
