比赛圆满结束!迄今为止,实践剧场举办了八届的故事擂台比赛。我们希望通过举办这样的活动,让同学们能跳脱固有的框框,挑战自己的想象力,找到创作的乐趣,得到启发和收获。比赛虽然有胜负,但更重要的是——你挑战了自己吗?如果你发现了自己意想不到的灵感,那么你就是赢家。
我们明年见!
Here’s to a successful conclusion of the tournament! Till date, The Theatre Practice has organised the competition for 8 years. We hope that through such an event, students are able to shake loose of the usual storytelling formats, challenge their own imagination and find the joy and satisfaction in creating original stories. Even though there would be those who emerge as winners in any competition, the important question to ask is still: Have you challenged yourself? If you have discovered unexpected inspiration in the process, then you would have gained immensely.
See everyone again next year!

上礼拜六,故事擂台初赛在炎热的天气里如火如荼的赛出了结果。让我们看看这些绞尽脑汁的同学们,怎么各出奇招吧!

4. 而个人组的同学就不同了,他们的创作看起来孤独又平静,但是谁知道在他们的小脑袋瓜里是不是炸开了锅呢……
Those who are individual participants may appear to be a little lonely and calm as they devise their stories, but who knows exactly how dynamic it can be inside their brains…
scpre08

5.进入比赛室,有的紧张得上气不接下气,有的很镇定娓娓道来,也有的兴奋得忘了时间直到哨声响起。
In the competition rooms, some appear to be nervous, others are focused in telling their stories, and yet more are so engrossed in their performance they lose track of time until the whistle blows.

After a long day of listening to all kinds of stories, the critical period is in deciding which participants to select for the semi-finals. After the results are announced, some rejoice, while others are disappointed.
scpre13
胜负都没有关系,故事擂台不是为了一决高下,而是为了让同学们找到创作的乐趣。我们希望大家抱着好玩的心态来,也抱着收获的心态离开。
The competition really isn’t just about the end goal or winning. It is the journey within which students seek the joy of creating and working together that makes it so meaningful.

Last Saturday, the “National Story Challenge Tournament” took flight and had the first glimpse of our 2014 participants at the “Briefing & Demonstration” session. This year, we have created the Malay language categories for the first time ever, in addition to the English and Mandarin categories, hence attracting almost 900 participants to be a part of this event! Competitors were divided into the respective three language categories and everyone were full of spirit as they took part in the activities.
Let’s take a look at what happened at the “Briefing & Demonstration”:

考完试咯,让实践剧场带您走入戏剧的世界!

By , November 14, 2013 10:58 am

文/石修榕
为了舒缓考试后的紧张气氛,“实践教育工程”已经准备就绪,为您呈现一系列精彩活动。
“故事擂台”,台上即兴,台下欢呼。看似简简单单的三张椅子,将如何花样百出,成为擂台上功不可没的配角呢?这一次,我们经验丰富的三位演员将故事擂台带到侨南小学,与创意无限的学生们一同即兴编故事。
P1110126
初次见面,几位演员先自我介绍。让我们来看看他们将如何把台下的学生逗得前俯后仰吧!演员巧妙地利用了台上的三张椅子,在短短几分钟的演出就把这些学生带进故事的世界里,笑声不断。
他们讲故事的本领果然不错,那即兴编故事的本领又如何呢?台下的学生积极踊跃地向演员抛出各式各样的题目,外加千奇百怪的小条件。在众多题目中,同学们最终投票决定要演员即兴创作《暮光之城》。演员接过台下抛出的小条件,在短短几分钟内即兴创作,精彩绝伦。
P1110154P1110132
是时候该把棒子交给我们台下的同学咯!这回,我们的擂台迎来了三位小勇士。在演员的帮助下,这些小男生勇敢地演了一出《睡美人》。谁说睡美人一定是女生呢?在故事世界里,大家都能以各式各样的点子即兴创作,编出属于自己的故事。
P1110113P1110186
看了演员和同学们演出的故事,让我们一同期待明年的全国“故事擂台”比赛吧!
除了精彩有趣的故事擂台,我们的戏剧营也来到了茂乔小学,与戏剧班的同学一同上戏剧课。这回我们还迎来了一群对戏剧有兴趣的小苗子。这群小二的学生虽然体型娇小,但对戏剧的热忱绝对不少。两位戏剧老师各自带领一组,进行一系列的热身小游戏。
IMG_2896
我们的叶老师在游戏的过程中给学生提了四样有趣东西。大家以小组的形式,在指定时间内把这四个毫无关联的东西连接起来,加入到他们的小呈现里。这考的不仅是同学们的创作思想,还包括了他们的合作精神。
IMG_2925IMG_2917
在彩排的当儿,同学们也不忘吸取老师的提点,把意见加入呈现中。每一组都有每一组的精彩和笑点,但最值得赞赏的,还是学生无限的创作能力。大家不忘把握时间积极排练,把最棒的作品带给大家。时间到咯,让我们一同观赏学生们的作品!
掌声响起后,同学们一组接一组为大家带来他们的小呈现。《小红帽》的故事里不再有可怕的大灰狼,龟兔赛跑中的乌龟竟背起兔子一同赛跑,果然是戏剧班的精英。不要看这些故事表面上毫无逻辑,但实际上却包含了学生无限的思想空间。在故事的世界里没有约束,只要有超强的想象力就能编出有趣的故事。
最后,当然也少不了非常受欢迎的《课本故事屋》。这次我们将《课本故事屋》飞到了培童小学,带领同学们一同飞入故事的世界里。一眼望去,台下一双双兴致勃勃的眼睛专注地盯着台上,期待演出的开始。究竟在故事的世界里,他们会遇见什么千奇百怪的趣事呢?
IMG_2944IMG_3019
在故事中遇到麻烦事?不怕,我们台下的救兵随时准备就绪,帮助故事里的主人公过关斩将。这群机智过人的小朋友果然是好帮手,不论是英俊潇洒的王子或是百般刁难的狮子出的难题,都轻而易举地解决。难题解决了,让我们继续飞翔,飞往下一个目的地吧!
IMG_3053
小朋友们听故事都听得入神了。大千世界,无奇不有,手中的课本更是进入花花世界的入口。同学们,现在就拿起你手中的课本,和书一起飞翔吧!
敬请期待明年精彩的《课本故事屋》。欲知实践教育工程2014年的节目吗?

故事擂台 @唐城坊 Story Challenge @Chinatown Point

By , December 28, 2012 3:54 pm

CIMG1998small
也许大家有所不知,“故事擂台”的诞生地就在牛车水,年份是2006!
所以我们在12月22日受邀来到唐城坊表演英语版的《故事擂台》时,有着满满的回忆。
Many would not know, but our unique Story Challenge format was first unveiled to the public in 2006 right at Chinatown itself!
So it seems somewhat nostalgic to be invited by Chinatown Point to perform our English Story Challenge show for them on 22 Dec 2012.

CIMG2007small
表演之前:3位兴致勃勃的演员们都热烈地邀请在场的人群过来看热闹。
First up: Our 3 hyper-excited actors raring to get the show on, as they holler to one and all at the newly-renovated mall, to come and join in the excitement.

CIMG2025small
首先登场的新编故事是“Toy Story”(《玩具总动员》),演员也充分地利用场地,一直跑上跑上舞台,很卖力的在演这独特的故事。
They performed a new version of “Toy Story”, and ran up and down the stage so that they effectively widen their space to include the audience.

CIMG2061small
接着,观众提供了故事题目和小条件,来考考演员们当下即兴编故事的本领。他们只有5分钟来准备新编的故事哦!这次的题目是《3只痛苦的小猪》。故事中讲到3只猪无法逛街买圣诞礼物,因为遇到地铁故障、巴士司机罢工、还有乌节路淹水事件。的确是富有本地色彩的一个故事!
Next, audiences provide story topics and conditions for the actors to improvise and create new content on the spot – in just 5 minutes! They performed “The 3 miserable little pigs”, which had elements of thwarted Christmas shopping due to MRT delays, bus drivers going on strike, and the ponding issue in Orchard Road! A very local story indeed 

CIMG2104small
最后,2位勇敢的小朋友也上台与演员一起讲故事。谢谢大家的热情!
And finally, we invited 2 courageous kids onstage to perform yet another improvisational story with the actors. Thank you for their spontaneity and enthusiasm!

CIMG2105small
我们也就结束了一年“故事擂台”的活动。新年快乐!
With that, we conclude our Story Challenge outreach and shows for the year. Happy new year everyone!

*“故事擂台”是一项由实践剧场首创及主办,别具一格的即兴讲故事活动。“故事擂台”包括学校巡回演出、训练工作坊、全国比赛、社区演出等。预知详情,请浏览我们的网页:

*Story Challenge is an original improvisational storytelling activity, created and organised by The Theatre Practice. The Story Challenge format has been developed into school assembly shows, training workshops, a nationwide tournament, community road shows, and more. For more information, please visit our websites:

考试后的学校工作坊好精彩!Post-exam workshops at schools!

By , November 23, 2012 3:27 pm

紧张的期终考试过后,同学们终于可以放松一点,加入各种考后的活动了,比如说,我们的故事擂台工作坊、戏剧工作坊、还有精彩纷呈的学校巡回演出!
After the stressful rounds of final year exams, students finally get to relax a little and take part in all sorts of post-exam activities… such as our Story Challenge and Drama workshops, plus exciting school shows!

所以,实践剧场教育工程,最近几个礼拜以来,勤劳地在学校与学校间穿梭,传播讲故事、即兴创作还有戏剧表演的乐趣。
The Theatre Practice Education Project has been hurrying from school to school these past few weeks to bring the fun of storytelling, improvisation and drama to students.

CIMG0984_RIsmallCIMG0986_RIsmallCIMG0988_RIsmall
首先,我们把“形体表达工作坊”带入了莱佛士书院。可爱的老师娃娃,在那里指导中一的同学们,如何放松身体,放开想象,并以小组形式,根据题目,快速创作演出片段。
We brought our Body-Mind Movement workshop to the eager Sec 1 students of Raffles Institution, where our bubbly teacher, Wah Wah, guided them to loosen up their bodies, open up their imagination, and form small groups to quickly create devised short pieces based on given topics.

CIMG1155_CCHSYsmallCIMG1158_CCHSYsmall
我们也去了中正中学(义顺),给中一的两个班做华语故事擂台工作坊。Ric老师给同学们的挑战是如何用一张简单的椅子来表演“关系”。他也教导学生不要害怕尝试,更不要害怕“失败”。Darius老师指导学生们如何互相带领进入情节,还神奇地演示了如何让几张椅子千变万化,变成演唱会、观众、栅栏、电梯……
Our teachers also went to Chung Cheng High (Yishun), and guided 2 classes of Sec 1 students in our Chinese Story Challenge workshop. Teacher Ric challenged students to act out a short “relationship” with a simple chair – to have no fear in trying, and not be afraid of “failing”. And Teacher Darius probed students into leading one another into different scenarios, and demonstrated amazing ways that a few chairs can be turned into literally anything: such as at a concert, audience, barriers, in an lift, and more.

CIMG1180_nanhuasmallCIMG1206_nanhuasmall
每年,南华中学的一群同学都会来实践剧场进行工作坊,也是南华中学双文化营的一部分。今年,Ric老师和Darius老师带领他们进行了华语故事擂台工作坊,也是他们整个活动营“讲故事”主题的一部分。看看他们的销售能力如何,如何卖出一个铃鼓?或者想象一下Lady GaGa遇到周杰伦会发生什么?
Every year, a group of students from Nan Hua High would come on an immersion workshop to The Theatre Practice itself, as part of their Bicultural Camp. This year, Teachers Ric and Darius led them onto a whirlwind Chinese Story Challenge workshop as part of their overall “Storytelling” theme. See how they can sell anything, even an old tambourine! And what happens when Lady Gaga meets Jay Chou?

CIMG1294_amkprismallCIMG1344_amkprismall
在茂桥小学,我们被邀请做一个两天的强化训练营,参与的不但有小二到小六的华语戏剧课外活动小组同学,也有感兴趣报名的同学。超级兴奋的小朋友们最爱分组的定格游戏!高年级小朋友用他们改编的童话故事让我们绞尽脑汁。谁说灰姑娘必须是个好姑娘?
We also went to Ang Mo Kio Primary, where we train their regular Chinese Drama CCA groups from Primary 2-6. This time round, they invited us to conduct a 2-day enrichment camp for both CCA members and interested students. The super excited kids loved the freeze-frame activities by each small group, and the older kids kept us guessing with their fairytale-themed stories with alternate endings. Who said that Cinderella has to be the good girl?

CIMG1020_eastwindsmallCIMG1059_eastwindsmall
在演出方面,我们在好几所学校巡回演出。有取材自传奇故事《三国演义》的经典战争神话《借东风》,由四位多才多艺的演员用现代的幽默感演绎中国历史故事。励仁高中的同学更在“草船借箭”还有“连环船”的情节中加入与演员互动。
On the performance front, we had gigs for quite a few school shows too! There’s the classic war tale of Calling the East Wind, from the legendary story of Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Chinese history was given a fresh spin with modern humour and jokes by our 4 talented and hilarious actors. The interactive show also saw Millennia Institute students join in for segments such as “shooting swords at the enemy ships”, and “crossing the bridge”.

CIMG1362_princesmallCIMG1412_princesmall
接着, 《我要上天的那一晚》 在德喇撒学校漂亮又复古的校园上演,小学的同学们在看着小王子与“我”继续探索的同时,折出朵朵纸玫瑰花,写下片片字条。
Next, we performed Day I Met the Prince at the lovely old-school campus of De La Salle School. The primary students folded paper roses and wrote simple messages for us to keep as they watched the Prince go on his quest with “I”.

我们也刚在国大附中演出了英语故事擂台,同学们非常出色,完全地投入,给了我们许多有趣的题目,譬如“Iron Man”、“911”、“Insert Name Here”。还列下苛刻的条件如“故事里不可以有人讲话”还有“每句话都要押韵”。特别是最后一个条件,让我们所有人都捧腹大笑,就是演员们每句话都用“lah“”wah“或者“ahhh”结尾……
And we just had our English Story Challenge show at NUS High as well! The students were magnificent – they were totally engaged, giving us lively topics such as Iron Man, 911, Insert Name Here, and conditions like “No one is to talk in the story” and “Every sentence must rhyme”. The last condition, especially, had all of us erupting into laughter with tears, as the actors tried vainly to end each sentence with a “lah” or “wah” or “ahhhh” to meet the challenge. Kudos to all students!

随着2013年的到来,我们将继续把双语的的戏剧工作坊、课程及演出带到学校,所以老师们,请留意我们的教育手册,以得到更多资讯。

你也可以从这里下载教育手册。

As we move onto 2013, we will continue to bring our drama workshops, courses and shows into all schools, for both English and Chinese languages, so teachers, stay tuned for our brand new Education Booklet for more information!

National Story Challenge 2012

第一天 : 2 月 18 日
Day One : 18 Feb
讲解与示范 Briefing & Demonstration

时间是早上8点,一批批小学生在带队老师的陪同下,浩浩荡荡来到立化中学报到。登记处的同事们马不停蹄地检查参赛者的学生证、分发比赛章程以及带领他们到所属讲堂。啊!中学组的参赛者呢?放心啦,他们下午才来!

Registration started on an early Saturday morning as schools of Primary student participants and their teachers started streaming in continuously from 8am for our Briefing & Demonstration session. For the registration staff, our day just kicked into high gear as we got busy, checking student passes, handling out competition guides and getting them settled into the Lecture Theatres. Secondary student participants came later for the afternoon session.

什么故事才算好呢?比赛有什么规则啊?别心急,有请经验丰富的演员们为你一一讲解。创意是要天马行空没错,思维是要突围破格也对,但大家可别忘了参赛者只有15分钟的构思时间,然后就要在3-4分钟之内说出一个完整的故事哦。

Our experienced TTP actors explained the “game and rules” of Story Challenge, and what makes a good story. Even though creativity has no rules or boundaries, and we encouraged students to think “outside the box”, understanding the format of play is important in shaping a complete story within a short stipulated preparation time of just 15 minutes and delivering a 3 to 4 minutes performance.

讲解当中,演员们邀请到一位来自新华小学的同学上台示范。他的临场表现实在令人激赏!

During the demonstration, our actors managed to convince a brave young man from Northland Primary school to join them on stage and show the rest of the competitors how it’s done. We were utterly impressed with his enthusiastic and energetic performance!

精彩表演过后,学生们到课室分组练习。大家终于有机会尝试表演说故事了!我们的教育与拓展总监梁晓端趁机和学生分享表演一个好故事的必备要素。

After the exciting performance, we broke into smaller groups and went to the classrooms to practice. Everyone got to try their hands at improvisational storytelling. Our Education & Outreach Director, Melissa Leung gave some last minute tips on what are the essential elements that make up a good story.
