***********************************

莎士比亚(W. William Shakespeare;1564~1616)

英国文艺复兴时期伟大的剧作家.诗人,欧洲文艺复兴时期人文主义文学的集大成者,公元1564年4月23日生于英格兰沃里克郡斯特拉福镇,代表作有 四大 悲剧《哈姆雷特》(英:Hamlet),《奥赛罗》(英:Othello),《李尔王》(英:King Lear),《麦克白》(英:Macbeth)。四大喜剧《第十二夜》《仲夏夜之梦》《威尼斯商人》《无事生非》(人教版教材称《皆大欢喜》)历史剧《亨 利四世》《亨利六世》《理查二世》等。

据他一系列的作品里,可以感受到他对当时人文主义的憧憬、期盼、坚持、矛盾及失望的过程。在莎翁早期创作背景,尚是伊丽莎白女王中央主权时代,整个 社会风 潮都在浓厚的人文主义之下兴起。(所谓人文主义,是指社会价值取向倾向于对人的个性的关怀,注重强调维护人性尊严,提倡宽容,反对暴力,主张自由平等和自 我价值体现的一种哲学思潮与世界观,即“以人为本”。)此环境即埋下莎翁对人文主义的未来憧憬,他深信人文主义思想可以实现。在他当时秉持乐观的笔下,他 创作了历史剧《查理三世》 和喜剧类如《仲夏夜之梦》 《第十二夜》等。浓浓的人文主义意味深深的埋在剧本里头。

中期,当时国事腐败,莎士比亚的作品创作风格也从明快乐观变为阴郁悲愤,其所写的悲剧也不是重在歌颂人文主义理想,而是重在揭露批判社会的种种罪恶和黑 暗。当时的君主詹姆士一世继位后的挥霍无度和倒行逆施,更使人民痛苦加剧,反抗迭起。在这种情况下,莎士比亚深感人文主义理想与现实的矛盾越来越加剧。

晚期,莎士比亚深感失望,乃退居故乡写浪漫主义传奇剧。其创作风格也随之表现为浪漫空幻。作品:《辛白林》和《冬天的故事》

他是“英国戏剧之父”,本·琼斯称他为“时代的灵魂”,马克思称他为“人类最伟大的天才之一”。被称为“人类文学奥林匹斯山上的宙斯”。虽然莎士比亚只用英文写作,但他却是世界著名作家。他的大部分作品都已被译成多种文字,其剧作也在许多国家上演。

曾以《黑眼圈》入圍金馬獎的資深演員蔡寶珠,是個人特色搶眼的劇場老將, 當劇場資深老將碰上青壯派劇場導演羅國文,以及廖培珍的經典劇作《紅豆 妹》,新穎的黃金組合,打造2011年最值得期待的劇場深度佳作。

蔡寶珠在劇場的經典角色,最為大家熟悉的就是《翡翠嶺上的愛美麗》,演了 近二十年的愛美麗,2011年,蔡寶珠終於要挑戰新的單人劇、新的經典女性角 色--《一個名叫紅豆妹的摩登師奶》。

劇中的紅豆妹是個林黛迷,嚮往成為演員,不斷給林黛寫信。林黛自殺後,紅 豆妹依然故我,信件從不間斷。及後紅豆妹學了戲曲,偶爾投入戲中,以為可 以跟林黛對戲。一切只因紅豆妹太渴望逃脫,她走在都市裡,戲一上身,她把 現實幻化成霓虹光彩的夢幻舞臺。紅豆妹是一個多面而立體的角色,也挑戰演 員的多語能力,蔡寶珠用歲月斂放自如的好演技,把紅豆妹對表演的嚮往和渴 望逃離的情感糾葛,詮釋得精準而豐厚。

《一個名叫紅豆妹的摩登師奶》改編自廖培珍的經典劇作《紅豆妹》,2007年 5月,向來勇於挑戰劇場新觀念的平台計劃導演羅國文,以《Water Closet》為 名,首次改編此作品,頗受好評。2011年,配合KakiSeni 《婦女100》藝術節 活動,平台計劃再度搬演《紅豆妹》劇本,並融入更多的時代觀察和對話。

曾獲本土表演藝術最受矚目獎項──金馬崙藝術大獎最佳導演的羅國文,在劇中 創造了一個虛實交錯的夢幻空間,結合本土影像藝術家區琇詒的前衛多媒體影 像,以及新進音樂工作者張俊開的音樂,重現、解構亞洲一代影后林黛的電影 與時代曲,帶觀眾進入現代與經典夢幻異想空間。




Imagine a space where illusion and reality intertwined.
She starts the most imaginary journey in a most common space.
She walks on the border of dream and reality,
She is lonely.
She hears some tunes occasionally,
Bringing her back to the most wonderful days of her life.

Ang Tau Mui is a fan of Lin Dai. She dreams of becoming an actress and writes to her frequently. After Lin Dai committed suicide, Ang Tau Mui continues to w
rite letters. She learns to act and occasionally indulged herself in the movie, imagining herself acting together with Lin Dai. She is eager to run away from reality, imagining herself becoming another person through acting, and thinks the stinking reality will soon transfer into a dream stage.

The director gets his inspiration from the letters Ang Tau Mui wrote to Lin Dai. Hence he invited video artist Au Sow Yee to create the tour de force of Ang Ta
u Mui’s most humble dream of the world of Lin Dai on the movie screen.

Malaysia and Thailand are neighbors but the middle-class people in big cities of both countries know each other so little especially the contemporary theatre arts which relates to people’s lives Makhampom has been doing theatre for people’s culture development since1980 with strong believe that theatre arts could make more understanding among people.

青年發展戲劇工作坊
Thailand Makhampom theatre’s mythology for actor and non-actor

The Makhampom Theatre Group began working in 1980, applying theatre process for community cultural development. In conducting a dual program of production-oriented performance work and process-oriented community development work, Makhampom has developed an extensive toolkit of activities that it now applies in various contexts. Makhampom currently had four streams – Performance, Community, Education and International programs – through which the theatre praxis is applied.
This workshop will introduce several of the performance, educational and community-based approaches of Makhampom through an integrated, participatory workshop. This will include activities designed for young people in addressing localized themes and issues through theatre based exercises, followed by series of group-based theatre-devising processes. The exercises will include theatre games, social mapping, physical storytelling, and experiential body-based devising work. At the completion of the workshop the participants will also prepare a showcase of performance material deriving from the workshop.
This workshop is good for theatre workers and educators applying theatre in the dual function of product and process. The facilitator will take you through a series of workshop exercises as an experience in Makhampom’s theatre approach.

Makhampom 团自1980年起,积极把剧场艺术带入社区文化的建设。多年来,剧团朝制作演出和 投入社会文化活动作双线发展,也因此发展出一组活动的工具箱,应用在不同的内容上面。 Makhampom剧团目前的活动以剧场为主轴,分成4个主要面向,演出、社区、教育以及国际交流。
此工作坊将透过密集的参与性活动,向参与者介绍 Makhampom 其中一些有关演出、教育以及 社区的理念。这包括为青少年依据本土性的主题和问题而设计,以戏剧为主体的活动,如剧场游戏、用身体来说故事、寻找社会议题以及感知身体等,此工作坊将以参与者从上课内容发展出来的演出作结束。
