《废物》The Refuse

(一)在污浊的河面上,漂来一只小木船,一个男人,还有一个女人,从遥远的家乡,漂到这里。然后他们在这里上岸,用芦席搭起一座小小的棚屋。那是我的祖先,半个城市的祖先。
A little wooden boat drifts on the dirty river. A man and a woman. From their home faraway. Then they get onto the river bank here, build a little shelter with weed mats. They are ancestors of mine, ancestors of half the cities.

(二)我们的剧场问一个问题:你还记得吗?即我们对历史和记忆感兴趣,同时,也对遗忘感兴趣。没有历史的真理,但问题可以有真实的答案。在剧场中我们要知道自己为什么记得这些,忘却那些?谁的历史我们能记得,谁的不能,为什么?尽管我们没法找到历史的真理,但我们能找到关于自己的真实答案,用以回答这些问题。记忆跟我们的身份有关。昨天的事物影响了今天。讨论昨天,亦是指涉今天和明天。
Our theatre asks one question: do you still remember? Which means we are interested in history and memory, and similarly, in forgetting. There is no truth in history, but questions can have true answers. We want to ask in theatre why we remember one and forget the other, whose history we remember, whose we forget, and why. We may not be able to find historical truth, but we can find the true answers of ourselves to these questions. Memory is about our identity. Yesterday affects today. To discuss yesterday is to discuss today and tomorrow.

(三)这个剧场演出来自于凯.图赫曼(Kai Tuchmann)和草台班合作推进的纪录剧场工作坊。贯穿其中的是海明威小说《老人与海》和大家对棚户区历史的研究。2011年以后,凯.图赫曼开始发展他的工作方法,并通过工作坊介绍这些新的方法。他好奇地面对在遭遇草台班后可能发生的变化。他不希望在这个过程中充当导演,而是,期待一起找到更新的“我们的方法”。这次演出是我们第一阶段排演的一部分。
This presentation is a result of documentary theatre workshop lead by Kai Tuchmann and Grass Stage, focusing Hemingway’s Old Man and the Sea and research on ‘Penghuqu’ history. In this workshop, Tuchmann shares his working method that he started to develop since 2011 and embraces the possible changes this new encounter with Grass Stage may bring. He does not want to be the director in this process, but to find a new ‘our way’ together. This presentation is part of our first phrase rehearsal.
