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.

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.

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.

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?

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?

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”.

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!

小王子说:“来陪我翱翔天际吧!” The Prince says,” Come fly away with me!”

By , August 24, 2012 11:10 am

谁是小王子?为什么小王子要横跨银河系,就为了解答这个蕴含人生哲理问题的答案——如何保护一朵玫瑰不让小羊吃掉?他还不如去欺负他的下属,或者是去环球影城玩好了…… 或许,我们的小王子其实和一般的皇室贵族不一样。

Who is this prince, you may ask. Why would a prince indulge in intergalactic travel and finding answers to deep life questions instead of lording over his subjects and partying in Vegas? Well, our little prince is not that kind of royalty.

Day I Met Prince

他来自一个非常遥远的星球。他的起源其实可以追述到圣埃克苏佩里。他可是一位法国贵族。他笔下的小王子甚至还曾出现在法国的纸币上哦!

即将上演的新加坡版本,其剧本《我要上天的那一晚》可是由实践剧场的已故联合创始人及文化奖得主郭宝崑所编写。这次的演出总共会有5首歌曲,分别由本地戏剧界和音乐界家喻户晓的创作人:小寒黄有杰陈国华操刀!

演员方面嘛~如果你看了不久前的《老九》音乐剧,那目光锐利的你就一定能认出他们!他们可是来自五湖四海:

黄惠敏 – 新加坡
吕霖轩 – 中国
洪节华 – 香港
他们同时也都是我们实践剧场的驻团演员!

我们的艺术总监郭践红继《老九》音乐剧再次担任导演。或许践红是在她女儿的推动下决定执导这部由她父亲编写的作品也说不定哦。

《我要上天的那一晚》从以前到现在,一直是学校巡回演出的经典剧目。这回,我们可是破天荒将它搬到黑箱剧场里面演出。如果你在学校看过这部演出,就更应该踏入剧场,重温这部温情洋溢的作品!

《我要上天的那一晚》将在8月30日至9月2日,假新加坡艺术学院 Studio Theatre 作为郭宝崑节2012的主要节目公演。

He hails from a planet far far away, his origin can be traced to Antoine Saint Exupery, a French aristocratic whose version of the famous Prince can be seen on French currency.

In our Singapore version, the script is written by the late Kuo Pao Kun– co-founder of The Theatre Practice and recipient of NAC’s Cultural Medallion for theatre.

There will be a total of 5 songs in the play- composed and written by Xiao Han, Julian Wong and Mark Chan, well-known names in the theatre and music industries here.

The actors- you would have seen them on stage before if you have managed to catch Lao Jiu The Musical-we feature an international cast:
Catherine Wong- from Singapore
Lin Xuan- from China
Wah Wah- from Hong Kong
and all of them are our resident artistes.

This play is directed by Kuo Jian Hong, the Artistic Director of The Theatre Practice who is probably inspired by her young daughter to direct a play written by her father.

Day I Met the Prince has been our staple for decades (in our school touring repertoire) and this is the first time we are bringing it to a theatre. If you have watched it during your school assembly in your school days, do not miss the chance to relive these cherished memories.

Day I Met The Prince will be performed at SOTA Studio Theatre from 30 Aug-2 Sep 2012, under the Kuo Pao Kun Festival 2012.
