《A Concise History of Future》 Reframe Theatre x FELIXISM CREATION

The first play by a Chinese playwright selected by

Berliner Festspiele Theatertreffen Stückemarkt

A thought of millions of people, reverses South and North
Connected fates are the journeys swallowed by you and me…

“Resists any linear narrative dramaturgy, using highly concentrated poetical interweaving to elaborate the cruel phantasms of a contemporary society of asynchronies”
–– Kathrin Roggla (Jury member, Berliner Festspiele Theatertreffen Stückemarkt 2016)

A country on the brink of civil war. Two generations, two cities, two opposite journeys. While the entire population is fleeing towards the South, the outsider struggles to get to the North in order to fulfil his mission. Time levels intermingle. With nowhere to run or hide, where is history headed? Defying the linear narrative, witness barbarism unfolds in asynchrony.

Reframe Theatre
Every creation of theatre work is a new and unique experience. Every work therefore experiences a new process of reframing. Reframe Theatre aims at exploring new writing, scenography, relationship between body and space and is established by Yan Pat-to, a playwright, director and part-time university lecturer. Renowned British playwright and critic Dan Rebellato has described Yan as a “talented, engaged, enthusiastic, committed playwright whose work is extremely interesting, mixing the political and personal with power and effect”.

The Rose of the Name 家寶

|名字,是生命的第一份禮物。
|小時候,最大的難題是寫自己的名字。
|嫲嫲說,她是家的至寶,她不相信。
|中學的歲月,她最討厭的和最親愛的,都是跟她同名字的人。
|某年,她有了樂智文,從此名字總離不開動物和疊字。
|愛難留,情易逝,甜蜜變成傷痛…
|在嫲嫲的墓碑前,她再問,到底「我是誰」…
|兩個人,一塊心田,可會是她的歸宿?

|余家寶的一生,和自己的名字角力,跟自己的名字共存…
|可能,我們每個人都是一樣。
|是她,也是你,和我。

A Soldier’s Story – the new generation

 

Hong Kong Sinfonietta
Stravinsky – The Soldier’s Tale
An ageless tale of temptation, greed and hopeful redemption that resonates through time.

One of Hong Kong’s flagship orchestras, Hong Kong Sinfonietta presents a unique version of Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale, specially reconceived and re-enacted as a “concert drama”, featuring young violinist Tseng Yu-chien, winner of the highest awarded prize in the International Tchaikovsky Competition 2015, and acclaimed dance artist Chen Wu-kang.

The drama unfolds from the first act as Tseng’s virtuosity on Bach’s Chaconne for Solo Violin attracts the attention of the devil, portrayed by Chen. He then gains fame and recognition over the course of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in D, Op 35, accompanied by the Hong Kong Sinfonietta. An introspective second half of the evening sees the orchestra and dance artists relating a cautionary tale of the soldier/violinist who sacrifices his soul to the devil in exchange for fame, wealth and glory.

A Soldier’s Story – The New Generation is a production conceived in collaboration by Hong Kong Sinfonietta Music Director and Conductor Yip Wing-sie and choreographer Yuri Ng, with help from dance artists CHEN Wu-kang, Jay Jen Loo, Abby Chan and Hikaru Tsutagawa, and featuring a Mandarin libretto translated by Michael Lam.

The performance by Hong Kong Sinfonietta is financially supported by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Singapore, Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

Date:    2016/2/20
Time:    8PM
Venue:    Concert Hall, Hong Kong City Hall

Date:     2016/2/27

Time:      7:30PM

Venue:      Esplanade Concert Hall, Singapore

Body-in-Progress: 聚光dance · 散光show

陳敏兒 Abby Chan (Dance) x 莫偉強 Christoper Mok (Lighting Design)

16 Aug 2015(Sun)7:30pm

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。

In Your Face – Screen Dance Project

In Your Face

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. “

Unlock Body Lab II :

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。

風景 PSEUDO SECULAR

2015, Fiction Film, Hong Kong

一個什麼都看不見的城市,風景是何物?

故事簡介
李彌來自內地,希望成為香港人,與男友阿彥過著似是愉快的情侶生活。格言賣盡祖業,卻以醬園傳人身份,販賣獅子山下式好夢。蝦米是網絡紅人,偽出一套生活態度。太初寄情社會運動,認為外面一切都不過是資本主義的偽裝。雲留不住丈夫和女兒,於是每天花盡心思經營蝸居豪宅,與她虛構的家庭生活。敏逃離安穩,要找出歷史風景,這樣的使命感與城格格不入。城外,社運份子宜被囚禁在更生中心,在現世與虛空中的狹縫中掙扎。
