三個終點一個起點

那年,廿三條的爭論鬧得熱烘烘,五十萬人頂著大熱天上街遊行。身處美國的我未能參與其中,只能透過網絡了解事件,與當地的華裔同學進行討論。其中,有一位同學說:「自由從來都不屬於這個國家,唯有死亡才能把自由釋放出來。」聽罷立時語塞,感覺有點消極。這句說話,一直在我心中,揮之不去...當是我心想,「有一天,我要以這句說話作出為發點編寫一個劇本,希望有一天我們不用說『只有求死才能得自由。』」

回港後,開始從事舞台劇工作,從一個劇場打雜到後來終於有機會執筆創作,從顧慮創作題材到下定決心要做回自己,促使我開始創作關於社會議題的舞台劇作品。《一路順風》的出現,是希望藉著故事引導大家審視自己、觀照社會與世界,並反思何謂極權、何謂抽手旁觀,甚至,何謂盲目崇拜。

《一路順風》是關於?

《一路順風》的故事發生在一個極權封閉的國家裡,有一座沒有人知的城堡,那裡是一個專門用來囚禁死囚和行刑的地方。死囚於被送往行刑前的一個小,都會被安排送到等候室...就這樣,三個於成長背景,社會階級及個人信念皆不同的死囚在這裡遇上。一段六十分鐘的對話有如雞同鴨講,鬧過你死我活。一輪唇槍舌劍後,都不及其中一個死囚的一句說話「一路順風」來得夭心夭肺。

有人質疑:《一路順風》是否有任何政治目的?

其實並不是為了什麼政治目的,只是我認為當面對世界和社會正在發生著的荒謬與不公時,作為一個人,我們不能不發聲。是反對還是認同,政府總得要聆聽人民的想法。若政府選擇用雙手摭掩耳朵,那就要有人願意站出來去撥開他們的手,讓他們知道人民正在跟他們對話。而作為一個舞台工作者,舞台便是我最容易發聲的平台。趁現在我們仍能有自由去創作,更應該利用這個權利去表達我們希望觀眾知道和思考的事情。

為何不在傳統舞台上演,而選擇在TC2 Café.Workshop?

原因是三木劇作成立時的其中一個方向是致力發掘文字與劇場之間更多的可能性以外;我們希望將戲劇從傳統舞台帶進生活,相信世界每一處地方都可成為舞台,戲劇隨時都可以出現在我們身邊。亦希望觀眾能夠以大眾化的價錢看戲,並拉近觀眾與表演者的距離。而與TC2的合作始於一次我們劇團在TC2開會,發現它有一個閣樓,它的面積剛好適合我們在沒有太大票房壓力下進行不同的實驗創作及環境劇場。於是和老闆商量,並得到他很大的支持,於是便促成了《返兜童年事》的演出。

由於《返兜童年事》一劇獲得觀眾一致好評,而且不少觀眾表示喜歡在Café看戲的經驗,我便與老闆提議成為場地伙伴,並定期於TC2進行各種文化活動,如舞台劇表演,讀戲劇場,音樂會或攝影展等等。由於TC2 六月新店搬遷,我們便順理成章把《一路順風》安排於新店演出。屇時,TC2將化身成一個囚室,上演《一路順風》。我們很感激老闆的支持,因為在這個金錢掛帥的城市中,老闆仍願意提供星期六、日這些日子讓我們租用演出,讓我們這些小型劇團有空間去發表作品,讓更多觀眾能夠認識我們。

最後

一個真正共融和諧的社會,是大家各有意見的同時,能夠開放討論,互相尊重,並努力尋找平衡點。要真正做到「人民的利益先放於前,個人利益於後」,這才是一個真正屬於大家共同建設的社會。《一路順風》的出現,藉著三個死囚即將面臨的終結,希望觀眾能夠明白有些事情我們不能再繼續視而不見,要坦然承認及面對實況,因這可能是唯一通往自由民主的出路。成為旁觀者與否,全看我們如何抉擇。這種觀念不是只局限或針對於某一地域;這,是一個社會人民應該思考的課題。

假如我們願意站起來,這便是一個希望的起點。
