心懷遠方的藝術管理人 - 訪問上海話劇藝術中心製作人黃一萍女士(節錄)(Chinese Version Only)

 

黃一萍女士是EMA 2015屆的學員,現任上海話劇藝術中心製作人,首席資深宣傳負責人,此次訪問中她分享了自己從事藝術項目製作,推廣工作十幾年來的一些心得體會,以及報讀EMA的收穫。

 

請你簡要介紹一下你在上海話劇藝術中心的工作和角色?

 

目前擔任的是項目製作人的工作,負責部分劇目的整體製作與宣傳推廣。上海話劇藝術中心雖然是一個國有院團,但一直以來它製作的劇目風格是非常多元化的,在我擔任製作人工作的這幾年間,既製作過大陸所謂的IP劇“步步驚心” (即在小說和電視劇都非常熱門的前提下針對市場製作的舞台劇作品);也有和香港藝術節合作的原創舞台劇烏合之眾,主題嚴肅風格也比較實驗性;也有與外國創作者合作的經典劇目太極學堂(莫里哀作品),“死神少女”(智利編劇阿爾多夫曼的經典作品,曾被波蘭斯基改編成電影);還有以弘揚歷史或社會典型人物為主題的劇目「共帥掌櫃“,”鄒碧華“等。由於曾經擔任了近十年的宣傳工作,相對而言對於不同題材之間的思維切換會比較習慣,並且我認為製作不同類型與風格的劇目,對拓展製作人的能力方面也不失為一件好事。其實並沒有什麼無法製作好的劇目,只每個劇目製作過程中的側重點不同而已。

 

修讀了EMA你有什麼收穫?

 

低頭走路,抬頭看天;直面現實,心懷遠方。讀EMA讓我有時間靜下來想一想這幾年的工作狀態,以及在現實情況下未來的人生方向。在工作了多年之後再度回到課堂的好處在於所有的授課內容都可以與工作相結合,從而獲得更多的啟示。在兩年的學習過程中,除了課堂上的課程,收穫最大的還是學習之旅的那段時間。一流院團管理者的經營理念,讓我更堅定了自己的工作與處事方式。藝術管理,迥然不同於行政管理,藝術管理者是為藝術創作服務的,藝術管理者是藝術家的天馬行空與現實的雞毛蒜皮之間的橋樑;是藝術的表達與觀眾的接受之間的橋樑。EMA也讓我結識了很多來自香港台灣甚至新加坡馬來西亞的同行,課餘時間大家相互交流工作的心得體會,不僅更深入地了解了其他地方的行業現狀,也相互借鑒了很多經驗教訓。兩年的學習只是一個開始,如何將學習過程中體會的東西融入今後的工作中,還有很長的路要走。EMA既是一顆種子,也是一扇窗,打開了一個新的世界,也種下了未來更多的可能。

Why would we organise a “festival”? In fact, Hong Kong is never short of arts and cultural activities. Different people are organising different events. Yet, behind the flourishing scene are the challenges of how to gather like-minded people and participants, how to utilise the limited resources and time, and how to link up related activities in an organic way. The self-initiated arts and cultural activities in the community are facing various limitations, from capital, labour, resources to venues. What risks and opportunities are in store for them? In this sharing, we have invited two veteran arts and cultural festival organisers, who respectively coordinate “i-Dance Festival” and “Kowloon City Book Fair”, to share their experience.

本港戲劇界別發展數十年,翻譯劇演出向來佔一重要席位。透過這扇窗,我們能體驗別國文化差異,擴闊國際視野。

 

歐美地區種族多元化,編劇編寫人物角色時,不時會出現不同種族,反映當地文化。處理涉及種族題材的劇本時,歐美劇場導演多按照劇本設定的角色種族選角,而不再以白人演繹黑人或亞洲人等角色。但華人或亞洲地區劇場的演員種族單一,呈現涉及不同種族的外國劇作時,如何不冒犯別國文化禁忌、而真實地呈現劇本內容,是一大挑戰。

 

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。

“All phenomena are illusionary and unsubstantial,” according to the Diamond Sutra.

 

How one sees the world depends on one’s viewpoint.

 

How one understands the emotional realm depends on awakening the senses.

 

Reset your life to allow for an infinity of unlimited possibilities.

 

Following his emotional letter to Hong Kong, Fragile Beauty, world-renowned Tibetan choreographer Sang Jijia has created a new work to examine the many faces of life. Sentimental Reality travels down the path of life, from the mundane to the monumental, facing life, death, and fate. Making this epic journey with Sang are dramaturg Tang Shu-wing, composer Dickson Dee, set designer Leo Cheung, costume designer Cindy Ho Pui-shan and lighting designer Low Shee Hoe. This will surely be the most magnificent work of the season.

Do you really want to keep your flat so much, even at the expense of your life?

 

One evening, Joseph, an old friend and the landlord of David, pays a sudden visit. This is more than a casual reunion - Joseph wishes to repossess the flat. Since the lease is yet to expire, David refuses to move out. No one is able to convince the other. Their argument begins from this flat. It then touches on the relationship amongst Grace (David’s wife) and they two, the difficulties of living in Hong Kong and even the value of life. Their conflicts are no longer just about this flat. Things are getting out of control…

"Oriental" is an old-fashioned term, redolent of age-old stereotypes borne out of fantasy and prejudice. Yet we continue to stage, perform - and love - works that trade with "oriental" imagery, whether visual, verbal or musical. Think of Scheherazade or Turandot. This makes us uneasy. Hence the pleas for critical distance. But can we pass judgement without being reductive? Hasn't the time come for considering Asian stereotypes about the West? Taking cue from the programme of this year's Hong Kong Arts Festival such as La Bayadère and Dream of the Red Chamber, a panel of young scholars debate the lingering appeal of escapist fantasies and the role of Hong Kong as incubator of new ideas about East, West, and anything in between.

This is the first major retrospective held in Asia on Pritzker Prize-winning Spanish architect Rafael Moneo. The exhibition masterfully portrays a practitioner who sought to define an approach to architectural design based on a strong disciplinary basis amid the ever-changing conditions of his time, accepting the difficult position of claiming architecture as a specific form of knowledge. Over 250 original drawings, photographs and models spanning Moneo’s career will be featured to illuminate the architect’s own vision and story, ultimately reflecting an important part of the recent history of architecture.

Red, the latest work by the Beijing-based “Living Dance Studio”, is a documentary performance with revolutionary model opera as its point of departure. The deconstruction of this artwork created in that particular era is an exploration into the body memories engraved by that particular movement.

 

Four dancers of varied background appear in Red: WEN Hui, the director, grew up with the eight model operas, to which her feelings and experience is complicated. LIU Zhuying was a performer in the era of model operas and her movements today remain as high-spirited as they were back then. JIANG Fan, a contemporary dancer, reviews and criticizes with the contradictions that escape from her body, on which model opera, classical dance, xiqu and modern dance juxtapose. LI Xinmin, a village woman without any dance training at all regards her body as the tool of her manual labor and the expression of her being a villager, a female villager.

 

Red transcends dance from the obsession of body technique and the form of dance to regarding the body as a language of story-telling. Centered on our memories and reflection, Red is a not-to-be-missed performance that strives to present life memories inseparable from the body itself.

Inspired by model operas, Red–A Documentary Performance by Beijing choreographer WEN Hui is a reflection on how, fifty years from the Cultural Revolution, normalized aesthetic has marked our bodies and our memories. Internationally-acclaimed Thai choreographer Pichet KLUNCHUN will be presenting his solo “     ” and giving dance workshops, during which he will formulate the structured improvisation for Tam Kai (Hunting the Chicken). KLUNCHUN will also show us how traditional Thai and modern dance come together in A Touch of Contemporary Thai Dance.

In the face of an ever-changing economic environment across the globe, cities are taking advantage of their own cultural background and resources to build their city brands as a way to tackle new challenges and remain competitive. In this regard, annual arts events like large-scale international music festivals and arts festivals have become one of the popular models for cities to promote the development of their cultural industries.  As one of the highlight programs of the 30th anniversary of the Macao International Music Festival, we will host an international forum to look at how international arts festivals and events contribute to the sustainable development of a city. Prominent practitioners from overseas and nearby regions, including Sir Nicholas Kenyon, Managing Director of Barbican Centre, Mr. Martin Engstroem, Founder and Executive Director of Verbier Festival and Ms. Tisa Ho, Executive Director of Hong Kong Arts Festival and more, are invited to share their views and together explore new approaches to the development of music and arts festivals in cities.

Building an art collection can be a tricky affair: is it right to trust your instincts? Where is the best place to buy art? Is it alright to haggle? And should you take any notice of what the experts say?

All these issues, and many more, will be hotly debated at the FT's half-day conference on How to Build an Art Collection to be held in Hong Kong on October 15.

Join dealers, gallerists, auctioneers and artists as they offer their views on today's art market, and offer some practical advice for both beginners and more experienced collectors.

The conference follows a highly successful inaugural event in London last year.

As well as surveying the international scene, the Hong Kong discussions will also focus on Asian art, one of the most volatile sections of the market, but also one which is seeing fresh names and new themes continuously spill into fairs, galleries and auctions.

Whether you are interested in the Old Master paintings that have stood the test of time, or seeking to understand the brash ways of the contemporary scene, How to Build an Art Collection will arm you with everything you need to know.

This summer, West Kowloon’s performing arts department teams up with Edward Lam Dance Theatre to launch the Theatre Atelier Project – a six-month training programme for young creative producers and administrators covering all aspects of theatre production and administration, including creative work, production, sales and marketing, digital promotion, and design.
The programme is designed for recent graduates or junior professionals with cultural management, humanities or arts experience, a passionate interest in the work of renowned playwright and director Edward Lam, and desire to gain hands-on experience in the performing arts industry.


About the Theatre Atelier Project

The process of making a piece of theatre is more than just the production per se. Discussions and considerations of aesthetics, philosophy and human psychology permeate through all aspects, including development, production and marketing. Very often, we forget that a ‘live’ theatre performance is about a gathering, a meeting of the artist and audiences through the medium of the work that needs a more holistic consideration when it comes to how a piece of theatre is created and thereafter communicated.


As we race toward the opening of our first venues in 2018, we at West Kowloon are interested to delve deeper into these questions and processes that take into consideration the comprehensive framework that creates a total engaging experience for our future audiences. With this aim, we are collaborating with Edward Lam Dance Theatre on the Theatre Atelier Project, a programme that will give us, and six young apprentices, a penetrating insight into the creative mind of one of today’s most popular and critically acclaimed directors in the Chinese theatre scene.

 

The Theatre Atelier Project kicks off in August with a 3-day seminar led by a stellar line-up of speakers, including:

 

  • Renowned playwright and stage director Edward Lam.
  • Production Director Bobo Chan Po Yu, production manager, technical coordinator and stage manager at various theatre companies and cultural organisations.
  • Lighting designer Billy Chan Cheuk Wah, whose work includes Edward Lam Dance Theatre’s “Hong Kong is Not a Place for Love” (1997), “I Hate Therefore I Marry” and “Art School Musical”, and Emperor Entertainment Group’s “Tonnochy”.
  • Set designer Wong Yatkwan, whose recent work includes Hong Kong Repertory Theatre’s “The Professor” and “Attempts, and W Theatre’s “Shuraba”.

 

Six apprentices will be selected at the end of the seminar. Between September 2016 and February 2017, Edward Lam will work closely with the six apprentices, giving them access to his particular approach to theatre making, including all public facing content related to a piece of work. This holistic and intimate training of young cultural workers will be a first for a major theatre company in Hong Kong, no doubt an important opportunity for growing future generations of aesthetically astute and sensitive creative producers. The project will also give West Kowloon important observations, learning points and recommendations that will help us look into new ways of facilitating creation, production, communication and distribution of artworks as well as the evolution of creative partnerships with the Hong Kong theatre sector in the near future.

Last year, Performing Arts Department of West Kowloon Cultural District Authority has set up the Producers’ Network Meeting and Forum (PNMF) and successfully brought producers from mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan together to explore different issues of performing arts in the region. The second edition of PNMF will be held in early May of 2016. Independent producers and producers working within the growing number of arts and cultural organisations who share a similar vision will be invited to Hong Kong. In view of the future development of performing arts in Chinese- speaking regions, this edition centres on topical provocations for discussion on regional venue strategies, collaboration and production in China, and a look at the establishment and development of IETM as a case study for building a similar network in Asia.

Common sense for musicians dreaming the big stage:

Classical - Get a music degree, practice, enter competitions, win or lose, get lucky, get famous, perform.
Pop - Get pretty, practice, record, upload, get likes, get exposed, get lucky, get famous, get signed, perform.

Thankfully, these common notions have finally been challenged by innovative means. There are local music practitioners who form their own ensembles, organise their own concert series, build their original seasonal programme. There are independent artists who go busking all around the city, building their followers on digital platforms. There are crowdfunders who support meaningful small projects that would otherwise fail without the early-received funds.

In this dynamic environment nowadays, how do musicians perceive themselves, "follow their passion" and develop their work? Can we learn from their stories and re-value the work of an artist?

This chatroom will be a polyphonic chatroom with musicians at different stages. Hear how they think, what they say, the music they play.

Many new arts centres are being constructed in the next five years in Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and mainland China. Apart from artists, audiences and the artwork itself, producers and curators also play crucial roles in catalysing and bridging artistic enterprises within the cultural ecosystem.


Organised by the West Kowloon Cultural District, the three-day Producers’ Network Meeting and Forum aims at mapping out and bringing together like-minded cultural workers from overseas and within the region to create action plans that will improve the infrastructures’ competitiveness, widen their audience base and expand their artistic content.  We hope that through communication and exchange, mutual understanding and strengthened collaboration, sustainable development can be achieved.

 

The Meeting
We would like to invite producers from Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and mainland China to join this closed-door meeting and public forum. Discussions include how we can collectively contribute to the growth and development of the next generation's cultural workers, so that they are ready to fulfill the critical roles within the burgeoning arts and cultural landscape in the region.

Introduction
 
Do you enjoy being creative?
Are you interested in studying Art & Design?
Want to know how this can lead to a career?
 
Career counsellors, art teachers, students who like art and design, and their parents, are all invited to join the upcoming Study and Career Options in Art & Design event at the British Council.
 
This event is an opportunity for students to learn from professionals who have developed careers in creative industries, and university academics from the UK who teach in the relevant fields. Speakers will discuss career options, their experiences, and answer your questions, such as:
 
1. Which careers are available in Art & Design?
2. What qualifications can lead to which jobs?
3. What do different jobs involve?
4. How should I prepare for a career?
5. Which skills and personal qualities do I need?
 
University academics, employers, and alumni who have completed study and started their careers, will speak in a panel discussion about specific fields, including Art & Creative Enterprise, Fashion Industry and portfolio development and job applications.
 
These interactive sessions will give you the opportunity to ask questions, discuss what career fields might be right for you, and which higher education courses will get you there.

To explore the unique role that Asia is playing in creative practice and performing arts education in the 21st century, the Academy will host a symposium entitled Asian Transformation: New Perspectives on Creativity and Performing Arts Education. This symposium will see internationally renowned performing arts and creative industry practitioners participating alongside their Hong Kong counterparts and Academy staff and students in a three-day event from 20 to 22 November 2014 as part of the Academy’s 30th Anniversary celebrations.


The symposium will explore in open dialogues its theme:
“21st century Hong Kong is a dynamic and diverse cultural metropolis at a unique point of intersection between Asian and Western creative practice. With Asia ascendant on the world stage, Hong Kong’s identity as Special Administrative Region of China and its rich cross-cultural influences ideally position it to explore new creative paradigms and their potential to shape the future of performing arts education”.


Keynote speakers, performances by Academy students and partners, and round-table discussions, centered around the themes of Crossing Cultures, New Paths to Creativity, Living Traditions, and New Pedagogies, will allow participants to contribute their expertise in building new approaches, methodologies, practices, and paradigms in performing arts and creative industry practice, research, and education.


Highlights of the symposium include performances by the Academy’s Young Cantonese Opera Troupe and its Schools of Drama, Dance and Music, students and faculty performers from the Shanghai Theatre Academy and student and graduate composers from Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin and Taipei.

 

With planning ongoing, and interest mounting, organisers anticipate that Asian Transformation: New Perspectives on Creativity and Performing Arts Education will prove a fitting culmination to the Academy’s 30th Anniversary celebrations.

About the Exhibition
 
Japan fascinates with a unique poster culture. Its subtle poetry, mystical messages and glowing colours are just as captivating as the cheeky provocation and rejection of all the accepted rules of visual communication.  The exhibition showcases over two hundred pieces of Japanese poster works that represent the artistic statement and image advertising development in Japan from the 1950s to the present day.
Highlights include works by three old masters, Shigeo Fukuda, Kazumasa Nagai and Ikko Tanaka.  An exhibition by Museum of Design Zurich.

Conversation with Kiri Te Kanawa

 

A Morning Conversation with Soprano Dame KIRI TE KANAWA, and TISA HO, Executive Director, Hong Kong Arts Festival
 

An icon of the international stage, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa is one of the world's greatest opera singers of modern times. From modest beginnings in Gisborne, New Zealand, she achieved her success through her formidable drive, application and hard work. She has performed in all the major international opera houses alongside Placido Domingo, José Carreras and other famous operatic stars and under the direction of renowned conductors including Leonard Bernstein, Zubin Mehta and George Solti. Her contribution to the arts has been recognized through numerous honors and awards. In 2013, she appeared in Downton Abbey as Dame Nellie Melba.


In conversation with Tisa Ho, Executive Director of the Hong Kong Arts Festival, Dame Kiri will draw on her extensive career to discuss with Hong Kong youth involved in, or interested in pursuing a career in the arts and creative industries, the work ethic and discipline - personal and professional - necessary to be successful in the arts and elsewhere, her thoughts on the future of opera and the continued relevance of the performing arts in the 21st century, and her aspirations in setting up her foundation which assists outstanding young singers with judicious mentoring, financial support and career assistance.
