Every Little Thing

We all used to be a trouble kid,

having a "splendid" punish time by mom.

We all used to join the gangs,

faking the authorities, challenging the impossibility.

We once want to get rid of the childhood,

and now we think we grow up too fast?

WHY THE HELL?

《童年,就如此經過》

可能你或我或他的童年都是大同小異,然而你的童年又會是怎樣呢?

每當有人問起我的童年是怎樣過,我便會答:“很頑皮,時常被媽媽打,還要隔壁的陳師奶拍門勸交,我現在才可以繼續生存下去,但我真的很快樂!”那時候,每天都走到附近的公園跟不認識的小朋友們玩集體遊戲,當聽到小店的收音機播放著六時新聞,就明白再不回家的話,那個晚上又要被母親訓話。然後,時鐘未到八時半就要乖乖爬上床等待明早上學,家裡的大人才懶理你是否覺得睏,只要你聽話照做就是了...說罷,聽眾們總是微笑點著頭,示意他們也曾經歷過同樣的生活。

童年時總覺得自己擁有了全宇宙,透過一雙小眼睛看到的世界總是很大很闊。例如一張碌架床是我們的堡壘,一部電視是我們的世界;一套卡通是我們的見識,一份雞蛋仔是我們的御饍;一件玩具是我們的終身伴侶...所有事物經過小孩的腦袋重組包裝後就變得很大很美!可惜突然有一天,我們赫然發現,童心沒有了,美夢不再了,剩下的就只有被磨得殆盡的生命與心靈。你或我或她或他也許都忘了當初的率性與天真。猛然抬頭的一刻,才發現童年就如此無聲無息地流逝,我們亦被迫長大成人。

童年,是否就如此經過?

在創作《返兜童年事》的時候,我常問自己,為何要“返兜”過去,到底我們在找尋什麼?是回顧過去?是尋找成長中失落了的人和事?抑或只是人大了難免感傷?過程中,我們嘗試與童年時候的自己直接對話,雖然童年時的我們總是有點傻,有點笨,有點奇怪的想法,但仍盼望能在當中找到一點啟發,但盼望能在當中找到一點啟發。起初大家對於這幾個小朋友頗為陌生,但就在這一次排練中,我們看到了這四個小伙子如何成就了今天的自己。當年的人和事,滿載著永不能替代的情與真,原來“返兜”的不是單單一個童年,我們想尋回的是那一種淡淡的情懷。

四個童年記載著四種截然不同的人生,我們希望觀眾們能在我們的分享中,重拾當年的童心與童真。童年的快樂並不是小孩的專利,大人亦可以擁有,只是,我們不要害怕低能與傻氣。
