杜国威+梁文福主讲座谈会《从本土出发》

By , February 21, 2014 5:56 pm

nlb talk poster

杜国威
曾经,有位四十六岁的香港中学教师,中年转业当起了全职的专业编剧,不但写了一百多个剧本,还获奖无数,他就是——杜国威——香港最具代表性的编剧之一,一个高产又高质的金牌编剧,他的作品包含电影、电视,和舞台剧本,如《刀马旦》、《我与春天有个约会》、《人间有情》、《南海十三郎》、《如果爱》,他凭这些剧本获得香港电影金像奖最佳编剧、香港舞台剧奖最佳编剧奖,及金马奖最佳改编剧本奖等多个奖项。也获取了香港政府还特别颁发的“铜紫荆星章”。
当年,他在美国留学,在思念家乡的情感下,将内心的感情完全倾注于一个剧本,这个剧本攫取了万千观众的心——就是《我和春天有个约会》。
杜国威曾说中国剧作家都背负社会和历史的包袱,而他只是用人与人之间的感情去写,从而反映社会面貌。他深受中国传统戏曲影响,用戏曲再结合本土文化而进行的创作,大概是他三度公演的作品《南海十三郎》如此成功的原因。
从本土出发,将让杜国威谈谈他如何把他的本土情怀,运用到他的剧本创作之中,又如何带他走向国际,创作《天冷就回来》这样具有普遍意义的剧场作品!

梁文福
当人们回忆起八九十年代,总是想到很多纯真、浪漫和真挚的感情。而勾起这些情怀的,是那些感人至深的歌曲。在新加坡人的心目中,最能代表一个时代的歌曲,就是“新谣”,而新谣中最具有本土情怀的领军式的代表人物,就是梁文福。
梁文福的歌曲创作,不但有许多的本土情怀,也充满了散文性和诗性。他的歌创造了新加坡几代人的集体回忆。比如同样发表于1990年的两首作品,《麻雀衔竹枝》和《新加坡派》,同样描写新加坡人的生活,却有着不同的命运。《新加坡派》曾在国庆典礼和学校集会中广为传唱,到了2012年还被哈佛大学王德威教授定义为新加坡华语语系的关键词,而《麻雀衔竹枝》,却因为歌中唱了几句广东话和一句福建话,从一开始就被禁播,直到2013年,才得以解禁,在电视和电台上播放。
为什么两首可以唤起许多人共同回忆的歌曲,有着如此不同的待遇?到底怎么定义什么是“我们的歌“——属于新加坡的民谣歌曲?
我们等待梁文福来谈谈,他是如何在身份认同上找到作为一个新加坡创作者的特质?而这些特质又是什么?

euro trip croppedI was always a choir girl. From primary school till my first few years of University, being part of a choir, was a huge part of my life. There was a time, however, when that nearly didn’t happen. When I first attended Raffles Girls’ School, I thought that I would join the school band, and learn to play an instrument for a change. However, after struggling for a month, I felt miserable and talentless – I then heard from my best friends who were in the choir, that they were going on an immersion trip to Europe! Jo on SnowThat’s when I decided that it would be much more fun doing what came easiest to me, with my closest friends – that’s how I came to be in the photo, enjoying our first experience of snow together in Salzburg, Austria. I don’t recall much about the sensation of snow, but everyday, I am reminded of how thankful I am to still be singing. Maybe if I had persisted with the band, I might have been a decent clarinet player today, though being a choir girl didn’t turn out too badly did it!

其实我是个很怕冷的人,每次去冬天的地方我都觉得我是一只很笨拙的大熊。一层又一层的冬衣把全身包的厚厚的的,冰冷的温度把我的脑袋变得迟钝。手中碰触的都是冰冷的感觉,让人很不舒服。

可是,冬天把大地披上一层白雪,把一切熟悉的景物变得很虚幻,真的很美。望着那些光秃的树枝,想着在春天的到来苍白的大树又会变成青绿的大树,就觉得大自然的力量是如此的神奇。


我去过最冷的国家是芬兰,而且是在冬天的时候。 亲眼看着白白茫茫的雪景,亲身体验雪花纷飞冷,真的很美。跟看记录片或图片是完全不一样。

Having spent almost all my life living in sunny, tropical Singapore, I was never really drawn to the idea of winter – I never understood what all the hype was about. The winter of 2013 was my first away from home, in the United Kingdom. Interestingly enough, the winter that year turned out to be one of the coldest winters in the UK – weather forecasts reported that it was the coldest in 50 years! It was when the first snow arrived in Exeter, that I truly felt the season’s beauty. I remember walking home with a couple of friends that night, when the snow started falling generously. Tiny snowflakes flew with the wind, glistening against the warm, orange glow from the street lamps. We were ecstatic! Screen Shot 2014-01-22 at 21.38.21_副本Forget the cold or our hoodies and umbrellas! We were dancing and singing at the top of our voices! We opened our mouths and aimed them towards the sky, trying to devour as much snow as we could! At that moment, it’s like we were kids again. It was just us and the snow – nothing else mattered. And that felt wonderful 🙂

我们一年一度的全国故事擂台比赛即将在月底拉开序幕,你们准备好了吗?我们先通过一段短片来了解下故事擂台比赛吧:
Our annual National Story Challenge Tournament returns at the end of February, are you all ready? Before that, Let’s find out what is Story Challenge though a short video:
[youtube BN2irSV6Vlk nolink]

同样的擂台,同样的玩法,今天就让我们来给同学们做一做赛前热身。以下几个点子可是绞尽脑汁想出来的哦,请同学们好好参考。

题目:多拉A梦
小条件:故事必须有王子和公主
故事:在绚丽的童话世界里,一切都是那么的美妙。但是,童话故事里的王子和公主也必须到童话学院上课。有趣的是,他们念的不是书,而是梦!这一天大熊老师决定要给沙拉王子和多拉公主一个突击测验。沙拉王子走到椅子前坐下开始做梦。他梦见自己来到一片绿油油的森林,这里有许多的苹果树,贪吃的沙拉王子开始把苹果一个一个地摘下。左手一粒,右手一粒,他不停地吃着手中的苹果。突然间,刚咬下的苹果开始爬出了许多小虫,把他吓得脸青唇白。挣扎中,他睁开眼睛一看,才发现自己的口水都流到衣袖上。大熊老师看了,摇了摇头,在成绩单上写了几笔。轮到多拉公主了,奇怪的是她也同样来到了种满苹果树的森林。她一看见这些苹果,连忙找来篮子把苹果装进里面。原来善良的公主是要把这些苹果拿到村里给小朋友吃。大熊老师微微一笑,给了多拉一个A梦。

那么,你要不要也来练习一下?

    题目:慕光之城
    小条件:在故事里,其中一人必须吃着雪糕。(加入条件时,切记不要把吃雪糕的部分马马虎虎地融入其中。)

同学们,来动动脑筋想一想吧!我们比赛见!
——————————————————————————————————————————-

The same stage and same rules apply! Let’s have a short warm up before the competition. Students can refer to the examples below.

Topic: The Tortoise and the Hare
Condition: Reverse the roles in the story
Story: There was once a rabbit and a tortoise. The rabbit was a nice and humble animal, unlike the tortoise who loved to flatter himself endlessly.
One day, the rabbit was having his breakfast when the tortoise scorned him. “I bet I can beat you in a race!” the tortoise said. The rabbit rejected his challenge. However, the other animals started to debate on who was faster. The rabbit finally agreed to the race in order to stop all the fighting.
The race commenced and the rabbit was clearly ahead of the tortoise. However, the humble rabbit thought that the race was pointless and decided to quit, hence allowing the tortoise to advance to the finish line. The other animals in the forest were unaware of this and determined the tortoise to be the champion. “I told you I was faster!” said the tortoise haughtily.
One day, an unexpected forest fire started to spread at a rapid pace in the forest. The animals sent the tortoise to get help as he was the fastest animal in the forest. This led to their downfall as the fire continued to spread and burn down their houses, and the tortoise was nowhere in sight. The rabbit, seeing that the situation was grave, ran as fast as he could to get help from the neighbouring forests and managed to save the community from being destroyed.
The animals realised that the tortoise was just a boastful fellow and apologised to the rabbit. The tortoise hung his head down in shame…

Would you like to give it a try?

    Topic: The Walking Dead
    Condition: There must be a witch in the story.

Let’s put on our thinking caps! See you at the National Story Challenge!

《当兵姑娘花木兰》和《童年不同年》校园演出

By , February 8, 2014 4:56 pm

文/石修榕
你听过花木兰的故事吗?如果没听过,我们的说书人已经准备就绪,为你讲述木兰姑娘的故事。
这一天,木兰等人来到了美华小学。往台下一望,我们的小士兵已经开始准备,随着木兰到前线杀敌去。慢着,当然少不了木兰的好伙伴,黑皮和白牙。正所谓战场如杀场,当兵打战当然不是什么简单的事。为了让木兰知道打战并非儿戏,我们的小士兵果然配合,立刻把礼堂摇身一变,把木兰带到枪声连连的战场。
CIMG3684
就这样,木兰带父从军已经好多年了。一年过了又一年,但是战争仍然持续着。敌人又攻打过来了,乱箭飞射,他们闪得过吗?今天我们杀了敌军的士兵,明天他们又将我们的士兵杀死,这场战争到底何时才能结束。
schoolshow02
木兰已经好久没见到父亲了,思念一天比一天深。这时远处好像传来父亲的声音,木兰隐隐约约看见父亲的身影。父亲一手握着锅子,熟练地煮起了木兰最爱的鸡蛋。画面开始淡了下来,父亲的身影也渐渐消失了。到底木兰看见的是父亲,还是记忆中的父亲呢?
schoolshow01
战争终于结束。木兰学习到了许多,同学们,相信你们除了看戏以外也学习到不少吧!
木兰的生活果然不一样,年纪小小就要上战场杀敌。另一边厢,我们《童年不同年》里的小志在这个学校假期中也体验了非比寻常的生活。让我们一同坐上小志的飞机,飞往达迈中学和同学们一探究竟!
schoolshow04
你瞧,飞机好像遇到了乱流,它把小志带到了哪里?原来小志回到了过去,还和子长元香当了好朋友。小志不只当了子长的陪读,还顺利地说服严肃刻板的先生让元香进入学堂念书。他们今天上那一课?
一场阴差阳错的穿越,不只让小志体验了非一般的学习生活,也让他接触了许多从没玩过的有趣游戏。
schoolshow06
尽管如此,小志却因为要上课而提心吊胆,因为先生不仅严格还体罚。还好朋友的关怀让他暂时忘记上课的痛苦。在屋顶上,子长想起年少时追求的理想,以及理想如何受到阻碍。元香也在屋檐下谈起自己往后的生活。这些都让小志无奈地感叹生活的大不同。
schoolshow05
小志终于忍无可忍,决定带领子长和元香一同进行了一场私塾革命,他们会成功吗?私塾会因此而改变吗?
schoolshow07
一场简单的穿越让小志成长了不少,相信我们台下的观众也受益良多。
