JOCKEY CLUB New Arts Power: “Beyond the Senses” by Wuji Ensemble
Set against a serene garden, the main character Ru Yu wanders around and starts to recite and sing about the scenery around her. She eventually realises that what she sees and hears are but illusory and unreal, and slowly attains enlightenment and transcendence of life. On the stage, amidst the light strums of the pipa and voice, all enter into a realm of meditation and contemplation.
 
In January 2019, Wuji Ensemble will present Beyond the Senses in JOCKEY CLUB New Arts Power, featuring the renowned Kunju artist Kong Aiping in her ground-breaking re-interpretation of classical Chinese poetry through ‘Atmospheric Music Theatre’, Law Wing-fai’s recent artistic direction which utilises the contemporary theatre as a means of expression. Revolving around the natural timbres of Chinese musical instruments and coupled with poetry, songs, music, dance and various visual elements, it hopes to cultivate a mood for reflection as well as a taste of Oriental aesthetics.

馬戲班主辦、導演吳偉碩(梵谷)X 編劇俞若玫
(Only Chinese version is available)
《墨迷宮》– 一場文字與身體的劇場實驗
 
《墨迷宮》是一個歷時三年的斷續探索與創作,劇場表演如何穿越身體與文字的微妙關係,什麼文字可以打開更豐厚的身體感知?劇場的身體動作又如何直接解讀而不只停留在演繹文本?文字可以有怎樣的身體性?動作如何有更強大的表演性?正是實驗核心。

《墨迷宮》有三個章節,以空間為本:公路、公廁、公園,個人和社會的瓜葛,生死愛恨和回憶的血淚對峙,沒有線性叙事,沒有必然的因果關係,對話詩化,荒境意像,身體血肉,都是平常又不平常的權力爭奪,大家在文字及話語而來的迷宮既清醒又迷糊地生活。
 
這是一次多重的劇場實驗,編、導、演都在探索新的可能,新的體驗,請與我們一起直接進入文字和身體的世界。
 
上演日期:28 – 30/12/2018

Calming the Chaotic Seas – 10% discount offer
“If regrets are inevitable in times of turmoil, let the seas carry all.”
 
Though reluctant, Cheung Po Tsai’s life was full of dares, risks, hatred and love. The gangster turned into an imperial official at last, hoping to serve the country and people’s wellbeing. However against his wishes, the choice caused great suffering to his comrades and left him die with regrets. History documents his deeds but not his emotions. Playwright Mandu, Director Dominic Cheung and Choreographer Yang Yuntao from Hong Kong Dance Company will reconstruct the complicated and confusing life of Cheung Po Tsai on stage.
