《行者悟空》幕后花絮：身体与灵魂“行走”排练室Behind the scenes of Wanderer Seeker: The body and the soul “roam” the rehearsal space
Wanderer Seeker – A Trek Around My Room brings together five actors, each one a unique personality both in their lives and in theatre. Over the last few weeks, they have been “roaming” and “sensing” their way around the rehearsal space. As a wanderer and a seeker, they explore within the defined spatial boundaries, and in the routines of day-to-day activities. Here, we reveal seven interesting nuggets that have occurred during rehearsals:
1. The director asks the actors to bring commonly-used items from their homes to be “played” with…
2. During rehearsals, there are frequent “table discussions”, as actors share their “wandering” and “seeking” exploits.
3. Some actors say that they have a more meticulous bath at home after rehearsals.
4.The director asks the actors to cut out one-third of lines from the original text.
5.During the first two weeks of rehearsals, actors were only “listening” to the furnitures…
6. After each improvisation exercise, the director will point someone to comment on each actor’s work. Even the stage manager and assistant stage manager will be asked for their comments.
7.When actors are asked to place furniture, they display varying preferences and signs of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Do you have any thoughts after reading this? We hope that you would come and watch the play, and gain your own sense of “freedom” both from within the theatre, and in your lives as well.
