河床劇團從2011年起推出《開房間》戲劇節,顛覆劇場集體看戲的規則,以「一個人看戲」的概念重新詮釋觀演關係,打破觀眾與表演者之間的界限,同時提供了觀眾五感並用的觀賞經驗。不同於前兩次以旅館房間為主要表演空間,2013的「開房間」計劃更與展覽結合,將現場表演帶入美術館的場域。這次座談將由「開房間」計劃導演之一何采柔(JOYCE HO)介紹「開房間」計劃的策劃概念及發展脈絡,及本計劃如何呈現現代劇場藝術之於表演、空間、觀眾之間關係的立體思維。

只為一人《開房間》 河床導演分享創作理念

 

延續正在北美館的2013「開房間」計劃,河床劇團導演何采柔受邀至台北當代藝術中心(TCAC)舉行座談,並有藝評王柏偉、河床演員許家玲參與,一同分享《開房間》戲劇節的策劃概念。

河床劇團1998年在台北成立,擅長將寧靜優雅且意象豐饒的超現實感受放入表演藝術中,強調不委外製作、原創編製;此外,該劇團的另一特色,就是把觀眾帶入戲劇之中,讓觀眾與表演者同在表演場域,塑造出總體劇場的效果。

對談中,導演以去年五月在國家戲劇院實驗劇場上演的《美麗的殘酷》劇碼為例,分享排練與演出的心得。導演表示,演員首先在未定型的空間內排戲,所有工作人員即興操作使舞台不斷改變,全劇去除文本、沒有任何對白,並以音樂作為戲劇發展的軸線,舞台則架高讓觀眾仰角觀看,期待以無須言語的共同生活經驗為基底,讓觀眾自由想像該戲的意境。

接著,三人談到河床劇團從2011年就推出的《開房間》戲劇節。《開房間》顛覆以往集體看戲的規則,用「一個人看戲」的形式重新演繹劇場關係,打破觀眾與演員身分壁壘分明的界線,觀眾可能是觀看者,也可能是表演者,演員會隨著觀眾的表情、動作與話語調整戲劇的步調。

2013年的《開房間》計畫與北美館《真真:當代超常經驗》展覽檔次合作,置放於該展展場內最後一站。今年《開房間》僅有兩個小房間作為演出場地,一次只開放一個觀眾入場。第一個房間為郭文泰導演的劇碼《不會有人受傷》,在劇中演員引導觀眾上車輛駕駛座,透過車窗窗框的放大與縮小與車子無聲的前後移動,觀眾視線被推進拉遠,呈現在眼前的真人演出也從2D轉為3D。

第二個房間的劇碼則是導演何采柔自己的《四季》,創作發想源於導演親人的一場葬禮儀式。入場後,戴著兔子面具的演員引導觀眾面對一名頭為液晶螢幕老人肖像的畫家前就座,在幽暗的密室中,畫家緩緩將花朵塗成白色,隨著空間中逐漸加速閃爍的攝影白光,以及逐漸劇增的電子音效,畫家在花朵上塗色的動作越來越快,並加快至最終失速而背歇斯底里地塗起自己的手,就在近乎失控的節奏中,突然燈亮了,空間泛起了一片鮮明飽和的豔黃,而演員的動作也歸於靜止。在何采柔帶來的記錄短片中,觀眾被帶出了這個黃色密室,並在他面前打開一處通往地底之門,觀眾並未能真實向下走,但透過這個垂直的景框,觀者能看見演員正以麻繩在地上圍出一個房屋的形狀,並以此圖形發展出一系列相應的儀式行動。

參與《不會有人受傷》劇碼的演員許家玲表示,日常生活接收的資訊,是供養她進入戲劇狀態的養分。這次導演拋出美國911恐怖攻擊的議題,他便聯想與事件相似的要素,像是電視新聞中有人受傷、悲傷的畫面。不過,她也表示:「現實生活真的不會有人受傷嗎?其實每個人都在受傷」,雖然身為演員,必須傳遞導演欲表達的意象,但她還是很滿足於能自由地透過戲劇說故事。

最後,三人談到河床劇團的願景,導演表示,希望藉著《開房間》計畫,突破一般劇團對演員的想像,挑戰演員與觀眾的定位,並期許該劇團未來能跨領域邀請各類藝術家、音樂家甚至是電影導演來合作,另外,她也希望能將計畫移置戶外演出,把處於實境的觀眾帶入幻境,用行動而非表演的方式引導觀眾融入戲劇情境。

 

 

Personal Drama :Just For You Festival (Riverbed Theatre)___ JOYCE HO(Speaker) x Po-Wei WANG(Host)7:30pm

Since 2011, Riverbed Theatre has presented Just For You Festival, in which, each audience was allowed to see the only one presentation of each performance. By presenting it, Riverbed Theatre expected to break the impasse between viewers and performers, to explore the possibilities of integration and create a unique performance for each viewer. Furthermore, the new production – Just For You Festival in 2013 was combined with an exhibition project (True Illusion, Illusory Truth: Contemporary Art beyond Ordinary Experience), and brought their live performances and the audiences into a museum space.
We are delighted to invite Joyce Ho to share us the concept and development context of this project, and how it presented the art of modern theater as well as the interwoven idea between performance, space, audience.

Riverbed Theatre Director Shares Thoughts Behind Just For You Festival

Director of the Riverbed Theatre, Joyce Ho, was invited to TCAC to share the concept behind the 2013 Just For You Festival and join in a conversation with art critic Po-Wei Wang and Riverbed actor Jia-Ling Hsu.

The speakers started off by introducing this year’s festival—The 2013 Just For You Festival has collaborated with the Taipei Fine Arts Museum exhibition True Illusion, Illusory truth: Contemporary Art Beyond Ordinary Experience, and the project has been displayed as the final stop within the exhibition space. Only two small rooms served as the stage, and members of the audience were only allowed entrance one at a time. The first room would be Director Craig Quintero’s play “Nobody Gets Hurt”: Actors guide the audience into the driver’s seat of a car, and as the windows enlarge and shrink and the car itself silently shifts to and fro, not only does the visual perception of the audience shifts, the performance also makes a shift from 2D to a 3D real-life sensation. The second room, “Four Seasons,” was directed by Joyce Ho, where Ho incorporated her personal experience of attending a relative’s funeral into her script and invited the audience into the depths of memories of their own.

The three speakers then went on to share the history and concept behind the Just For You Festival. Riverbed Theatre initiated the Festival in 2011, and this was revolutionary in a way that it overthrew the convention of a collective audience through blurring boundaries between the performers and the audience.

Finally, as the speakers discussed their visions for Riverbed Theatre, Director Joyce Ho expressed her hopes of challenging the perception and self-positioning of the actors and the audience, collaborating with artists, musicians and even movie directors of different backgrounds. She also hopes to see the project one day performed in an outdoors setting and to bring the audience from reality into imagination through actions instead of performances.

Riverbed Theatre was established in Taipei in 1998, and they are best known for incorporating surrealist sensations into performing arts, creating a macro-theatre effect through blurring boundaries between actor and audience and producing original performances.
