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。

Afar 远角

Directed by Jalyn Han, in collaboration with Drama Box
Presented by Esplanade Presents The Studios

A group of people wakes up from an accident to find that they are caught in the world of the inbetween, unsure if they are dead or alive. They start to reflect, and try to salvage whatever is left of their memory, while yearning for a glimpse of a beacon of hope somewhere Afar. Soon, they realise the completeness and accuracy of their fast fading memories to be a matter of life and death. How far can what they remember bring them?

Playwright Lee Shyh Jih
Performed by Doreen Toh, Goh Seok Ai, Karen Tan, Tan Shou Chen, Tan Wan Sze

不知何处。不知何时。
不知自己认不认识的他人。不知认不认识自己的他人。
不知是否完整的记忆。不知是否准确的记忆。
一场车祸。没有伤亡。
看五个受困灵魂怎么确定自己是生是死。

一反其擅长的抒情写实的情景,远角帶你进入神秘的中阴间。一群遇上车祸后的人,也不知道自己是死是活,面对巨变后,除了梳理以及,就希望看到远角处的风景。

《男男自语》衷心恳请您仔细聆听心灵的节奏,并依附在灵魂的声音。

…an exploration of love, lies and loss through a new language.
Ming, Oscar, Robert and Daniel are entangled in a web of passion. They love and hate one another but they invariably come back to the place where they first started – a place of love and understanding. The four characters battle their own demons while struggling to free one another from their ghosts.

何处一盏灯 HO AM I

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

HO AM I (何处一盏灯) is a drama that traces the life and contributions of late Venerable Ho Yuen Hoe who represented different facets of a woman’s life – a filial daughter, a loving mother, an entrepreneur, a nun, a carer of elderly and a community leader. Put up by popular local artistes like 叶世品, 谢静仪, 易凌, 许桂荧, 管雪梅, 孙葆伶and 王利秦 as well as 有维法师, the musical highlights Ven Ho’s experiences from her bitter childhood days till the latter half of her life where she devoted selflessly to the care of many elderly.

The remarkable history of Ven Ho affords a peek into the traditional trades that sustained the livelihoods of our forefathers, and the samsui women who occupy a unique place in our nation building. Ven Ho’s single minded pursuit was to nurture and care for women in need in her sheltered home. As a “vegetarian lady” she cooked and sold vegetarian food to support them and brought light into their lives. Her enduring faith, resilience and desire for a better home for the elderly culminated in the development of the Man Fut Tong Nursing Home.

Expect to be deeply moved and touched by the wholehearted devotion Ven Ho has towards her passion for serving others and be enlightened about life beyond material gains. Through this heartfelt musical, we hope to spread her indomitable spirit of love and care for others to many more out there and as a role model for all to emulate.
