The Pleasure of Planned Performance

打有准备之仗的乐趣
 
“Embrace what frightens you. Get some new experiences.”
? Adam Carolla, Dancing with the Stars
 
 
Over the weekend I’ve been in Fort Lauderdale as part of a performing arts  seminar. Part of it was myself and others doing some Japanese-based performance art, something like a cross between butoh and kabuki and a post-modern aesthetic. There were other groups there, but if can say so, ours was the most planned of the events.
 
It  was an interesting experience, because my friends and I came to this conference from several different states, and spent a few hours in a hotel room Thursday night planning out cues, music, transitions, and the acts. We actually only got one rehearsal, moments before the house opened, and it didn’t matter. We blew the audience away - it was a small seminar, about 350 people, and they didn’t expect theatre. They expected a minor demonstration of, say, Kabuki costume technique, or perhaps butoh suspension performance.
 
They got an MC. They got comedy. They got a story arc. They got drama. They got costume changes, careful attention to music, and for the next two days people talked about it. I daresay they’ll continue to talk about it after they leave to go back to their homes.
 
On the one hand, part of it  is due to the professionalism of the performers, in particular the Director, Lee Harrington. But honestly, we were all professionals, and what really made the difference was the seriousness with which we took the small performance. It didn’t matter that the audience was small; it didn’t matter that the admission was only $5. We took the time and the care to do the show the right way, and I think that it was done as much for each other and ourselves as anyone else. Afterwards, as we all went out for ice cream, there was a measure of camaraderie that is rare in any setting, but which normally takes weeks and months of rehearsal to instill in a cast.
 
Somehow we managed to get it in just a couple of hours of planning, rehearsal and performance.  Taking that time made all the difference between just another conference demonstration and what was undeniably a work of art.
 
      “拥抱那些让你害怕的事物。得到一些新的体验。”
 
      ??亚当?卡罗拉,《与星共舞》
 
     整个周末,我都在罗德岱堡参加一个表演艺术研讨会。研讨会的一部分是我和其他人作一些日式的表演艺术,一种类似于舞踏、歌舞伎和后现代主义美学的融合体。会上也有其他队伍,但是可以说,我们是这个环节中准备得最充分的。
 
     这实在是一次有趣的经历,因为我的朋友和我都是从几个不同的州来这里参加这个会议的,而且只在星期四晚上花了几个小时在旅馆房间设计出开场,音乐,过渡和表演。事实上我们只彩排过一次,就是在开门前的一点点时间,不过这并不要紧。我们感染了全场观众??这是一个小型的研讨会,只有大概350人,他们不希望有一个剧院效果的演出。他们只想要一个歌舞伎的习惯技巧或者舞踏停顿的小型示范表演。
 
     他们有一个司仪,有喜剧,有故事曲折性,有舞台剧。他们有习俗交换,对音乐的慎重态度。在之后的两天里,人们都在谈论它,而且我敢说,在他们回家去之后,他们依然会继续谈论它。     
 
    其中一部分也要归功于表演者的专业性,尤其是导演,李?哈灵顿。但是,老实说,我们都是专业的,真正让我们与众不同的是我们对待这个小型表演的严肃态度。无论观众群是大是小,也不管这出场费只有5美元。我们用时间和细心,用正确的态度来对待这场秀,并且我认为,对每个人以及我们自己而言,这场秀是成功的,同样也对其他任何人而言。事后,当我们一起出去吃冰淇淋时,我们得到了在其他环境中很少有的友情,而这种友情是我们通常情况下要经过几周甚至几个月的彩排才能形成的。
 
    不知怎么回事,我们却能够在短短几小时的排练、彩排、表演中就形成了。花了那些时间,使我们的表演成为与另一场研讨会完全不同的示范,而且不可否认的成为了一个艺术品。
