《编剧操练营》之“图有分晓” Playwrights’ Boot Camp Week 2 – Stories from the Fragments of Photographs

By , October 6, 2011 9:19 am

进入第二个星期的《编剧操练营》… … Playwrights’ Boot Camp Week 2:

从图开始说起,每位编剧根据所提供的图片,天马行空的进行创作。
This week’s approach to the development of stories differs from the previous week. Each playwright is given a photograph as the starting point for story and plot development.

故事(一)The First Story:《面具》Mask
编剧 Playwright: 何仙姑 Holly Ho
导演 Director: 李邪 Li Xie
演员 Actors: 许彬 Xubin, 梁晓端 Xiao Duan, 董姿彦 Joanna Dong, 梁海彬 Neo Hai Bin, 韩乾畴 Hang Qian Chou, 蔡竞聪 Edward Choy

故事主人翁,阿昆,一位在岗位上“尽忠职守”了近10年的停车场稽查员。遵循着已故母亲的教诲,时刻都要记得戴面具处事。小品呈献了他从面试到成功转换跑道成为实习交警的“怪遇”过程。
The main protagonist, Ah Kun, is a 30 year old carpark attendant who has spent the past decade of his life, working as a humble carpark attendant, with little ambition of his own. With the death of his mother, who returns to haunt him through apparitions that he sees, or as a figment of his own captive mind, he struggles with the need to move on.

故事(二) The Second Story:《自由》Free
编剧 Playwright: 苏君英 Su Jun Ying
导演 Director: 林志坚 Jonathan Lim
演员 Actors: 吴悦娟 Goh Guat Kian, 罗宝玲 Audrey Luo, 洪节华 Wah Wah, 黄惠敏 Catherine Wong

发挥想象空间,这出小品需要你幻想同一个人物,以不同年龄(年轻和年老的女人)来相互对话。对话过程中,他们触及了深埋在心中,一个封闭已久的事件。然而,从对话的过程里,他们也因此取得心灵上的解脱… …
The play verges on surrealism. Throughout the story development, we tune ourselves to the conversations of a young girl and that of a much older woman. The conversations lead the audience to probe for themselves, how a troubled being seeks relief from painful memories of the past, and the frail attempt at removing the very cause of one’s pain …

故事(三)The Third Story:《想》Imagine
编剧 Playwright: 董欣 Dong Xin
导演 Director: 郭践红 Kuo Jian Hong
演员 Actors: 傅正龙 Rei Poh, 黄文鸿 Huang Wen Hong

故事充满想象空间。探讨一个精神病患内心痛苦的挣扎,他不断的问:“我是谁?我在哪?时间?我该怎么办?”等问题。任谁,也办法给他一个解释。
Imagine explores the inner mind and thoughts of a troubled psychopath. Repeated throughout, are questions such as, “Who am I?”, “Where am I”, “What time is it?”, “What I feel?’”, “What I do?” … At the end of the play, one cannot help but to feel that the psychopath will never be able to dissect who he really is, or what motivates him to his crime;

Last night was the debut performance of Playwrights’ Boot Camp showcase and the audiences were in for a remarkable treat! Held in our cosy little black box studio at Waterloo Street with the audience casually seated either on rattan cushion chairs or on the floor, the evening was filled with anticipation as three interesting scripts were presented to the audience!

By now our loyal reader (yes that means you!) would be familiar with the boot camp concept – 7 days of script creation and only 6 hours of rehearsals before completion! The topic of the week given to the playwrights – Wensen, Suhuai and Xiaoyi – was this: The story unfolds in a space with four actors (no restrictions in gender) in a duration of ten minutes, starting from midnight.

Here’re the playwright and cast combinations:
Waiting for Mahjong
Playwright: Cheow Boon Seng
Director: Kuo Jian Hong
Cast: Lim Poey Huang, Thomas Lim, Audrey Luo, Jacklyn Kuah

Strange
Playwright: Huang Suhuai
Director: Li Xie
Cast: Wong Woon Hong, Xu Bin, Neo Hai Bin, Joanna Dong

Codes
Playwright: Liu Xiaoyi
Director: Jonathan Lim
Cast: Gordon Choy, Rei Poh, Lei Yu, Tan Beng Tian

《奇怪》
奇怪的定义是什么?若在预设的圈子里,处在圈外抑或在待在圈内又有什么不一样?
Strange
What’s the definition of strange? What does it mean being outside and inside a pre-set circle of space? Does it even matter?

《暗号》
想象着,新加坡陷入战争。在一间残破的小屋里,4名士兵同志:一聋、一哑、一瞎和一健全。若再有人以暗号敲门,你,会开门吗?
Codes
Imagine a war-struck Singapore. Now, a dilapidated hut with 3 wounded comrades – 1 deaf, 1 mute and 1 blind – and an able-bodied soldier. Then someone knocks on the door, with a secret code. Would you open the door?
