Audition Notice for Exile or Pursuit /《放逐与追逐》甄选通知

Audition Notice
《放逐与追逐》
Exile or Pursuit

创作动机:
《放逐与追逐》是新加坡教育部中学华文文学指定修读的文学作品之一。
为了培养学生对华文文学的兴趣,教育部特别委约应艺制作做出一次破天荒的尝试,就是把这部文学作品改编成舞台剧。希望借此 “文学活动”能让更多的学生在观赏舞台剧之余,会对华文文学产生兴趣,从而懂得欣赏华族文化的魅力。

教育部:无论学生的语文能力和家庭语言背景差异有多大,教育部都将继续协助学生达到其能力所及的最高母语水平。

故事内容:
《放逐与追逐》的故事是以主角福良的成长为主线。从上世纪70年代到90年代末,华校生的身影投射在他身上;并借以他的成长历程带出他身边每一个人物或自我放逐或被社会环境放逐的故事,以及他们庄严可敬的追求。
小说中的人物有不同的成长背景,当中有华校生(福良、小愿、弟仔),有英校生(Eileen、Alan、Steven)、有印尼华侨(秋云)、有流落新加坡的满清皇族(傅渟)、有中国南来的移民(福良的父母、小愿的父母),但不论是什么背景,他们都不能幸免地或自我放逐,或被社会环境放逐;在放逐中,他们却又努力不懈地追求各自的理想。

Non-Acting Workshop for Actors

Are you an actor who always challenges your craft?

Emotions are a universal tool that can touch all beings as long as they are genuine.

This 3-day workshop will explore how you can draw from your own life experiences to just “be”, and not “act”.

No prior acting experience is required. Participants should have the desire to challenge yourselves.

Please note that this workshop will be conducted in English and Mandarin.

Seeding Lab for Artist(e)s – Phase 2

Note: This workshop is only opened to participants who have completed Phase 1 of Seeding Lab.

 

Dear Participants of Phase 1,

Singaporeans often do not have the time to slow down, observe and feel the pulse of life beyond “making a living”. The same could be said for arts practitioners, so busy with projects that we forget how it’s like to create something not knowing what it might lead to.

I hope that Seeding Lab provided a good environment for you to rediscover your inner voice and unearth the creative energy in you that is not bounded by norms and standards.  I’d like to thank Noise Movement, which made Seeding Lab possible with their partial funding.

An Invitation

With the conclusion of our 5-day workshop of Phase 1, I would like to invite you to take part in Phase 2 of Seeding Lab, which will see you collaborate with professional artists in April and May 2016. This is not just a continuation of the bonds you’ve formed with fellow artists, but also to foster the exchange of different art forms, which I believe will add much vibrancy to the local arts scene.

If you’re interested to join Phase 2, please email me at jalyn@inarts.com.sg by 31 March 2016.

Meanwhile, keep your mind curious!

Sincerely,

Jalyn

 

In support of youth arts participation

Seeding Lab for Artist(e)s – Phase 1 (2nd run)

Most of the time, people get together only when a project is about to take place. In Seeding Lab, we do the reverse – explore from ‘nothing’, with nobody knowing where or what our union of ideas will lead to. And we invite all curious minds – anyone who has the desire to break away from routine and try something new – to join us on this journey of discovery.

Reviews of Tartuffe 伪君子

As with most comedy, it is the witty servant that carries the show and this one is no different. Jalyn Han as Dorine brings on the laughs with her keen comic timing and energy. She also strikes a balance between the exaggeration needed in the comedy and the quieter moments when she is a keen observer.

Darius Tan’s Orgon, is a wonderful foil to Dorine. They play off each other well and the actors’ energies are well-matched.
