Send In The Clowns

俄羅斯手風琴的旋律嗡嗡嗡溶解在冰涼夜風中

俄羅斯手風琴的旋律嗡嗡嗡溶解在冰涼夜風中

滅了的金紅燈球 讓舞台頓時失去了華美

像天空那麼大的帳幕 空空的 只剩滿地紙片沙沙嘆息著

籠子裡 大像思念著草原的芬芳

雄獅哀怨著逝去的英姿 淪落至跳火圈謀生

舉起一晚後腿的疲累狗兒們緊緊相依 終能歇息

白馬的空洞眼神 似乎已遺忘奔馳的自由

睡不安穩的動物們蜷縮在升自牢籠裡 問這一切何時會過去

踩著大彩球的小丑卸著濃妝卻擦不掉那滴眼淚

馴獸師呆視著長鞭 內心卻不斷矛盾糾葛

扮空中飛人的年輕孩子獨自坐在黑暗的鞦韆上 想家

噴火特技男必須用威士忌漱口 只為蓋過嘴裡痛恨的汽油味

肢體怪奇者看著鏡子裡的自己 不解命運究竟

從一個城鎮流過到另一個城鎮再到另一個城鎮

為大家散播快樂的馬戲團他們沒有家了

他們的歡樂/悲傷 華美/寂寥 光華/晦暗 猶如一支雙人舞緊緊相隨

光與影 黑與白 明與暗 日在夜裡 夜在日裡 循環循環循環著

看不見的塵埃一直都在深灰色空氣中舞蹈著

這是在安靜之後才能聽見的音樂

光合作用(Photosynthesis):植物,有光就有命,將世界上的二氧化碳、水,轉化成葡萄糖同氧氣。氧氣釋回大氣,繼續循環,生生不息。

沒有光的日子,就是醞釀、等待、死亡。光之創作,鉅細無遺,從沒停下來。

生滅、聚散,光著身子來到地球,由「零」開始。說到底,靈魂走的時候,總會學到甚麼——縱使,只是一點點。

經歷講座、公開工作坊、多次實習,4位光之舞者聚過了,經歷光合作用——人、光、思、憶、情——不知有沒剩下葡萄糖?如今即將散開了,是回歸氧氣的時候了,誠邀閣下前來呼吸。

On Two Work-in-progress Presentations with Bodies, Lights and Objects

In Your Face – Screen Dance Project

Abby Chan x INJURY

As the world becomes angrier, this video emphasize catching the exaggerated expressions, gestures and actions of rage. The issues may be different, but the anger expressed by people around the world is universally understood, like —– emoji. Film is a natural medium to explore the idea of uncontrollable emotions. The behavior can look cartoonish, clownish, or immature. Hopefully this humorous tone helps to drive home the idea that anger uncontrolled does benefits no one. ACTION (camera phrase) with good intention is in need.

Another attempt of this video is merging film, dance and the fashion design of INJURY together. The name INJURY – when you are being cut and sewn you are in a situation of INJURY same as fabrics. Same as people.

“Dick Wong Tai-fai’s solo for Abby Chan Man-yee, Fissure, explores the conflict between the rational and emotional sides of the brain. Chan dances the same sequence of steps over and over while her “other” self, projected on a screen, gives her instructions. The introduction of music transforms the steps as they are accompanied by first one, then another sequence from Stravinsky’s TheRite of Spring. A smart piece performed with commitment by Chan. “

見光舞蹈會

從身認識燈光,
讓燈光認識你。

科技覇道,今日的光已非昨日的光。

燈光與電腦濫交,數碼互動,人體感應…五光十色如夢如幻,吸睛吸金背後,又反智又虛偽,没了人性,非常當代。

光對於你,除了眼光光、光復、走光、激光…還有甚麼?
今回工作坊,返璞歸真,嘗試運用光源再次發現身體。
