各國文化存在差異,各地表演藝術的發展步伐難以一致,文化生態更迥然不同。以中英劇團即將上演的美國翻譯劇《谷爆笠水帶位員》(The Flick)為例,由華人演員演繹劇中非裔美籍人士一角時並無作特別化妝處理,以尊重不同種族。同樣的處境,數十年前的處理手法與今天的處理手法亦會由於各國文化生態轉變而有所不同,值得戲劇同業借鏡及反思。在劇場塑造角色時,如何做到像真之餘且能尊重別國文化?忠於原著、忠於角色的種族會否窒礙藝術創作?從形象塑造角色,會否構成種族、性別、年齡、殘疾歧視?藝術創作的尺度應如何釐定?版權代理作為中介人,能否減低版權持有人與藝團的磨擦?是次研討會將以此劇作引旨,與同業探討東西方劇場對種族處理的看法及須注意的文化禁忌。
