Syan Production - The Anonymous (Supported by ThreeWoods Playwright)


Fear,

it does not exist in the core nature of a fact.
The seeds of F-E-A-R,
however,
are sown and multiplied as a stubborn habit in our inner hearts.

 

Fear numbs our consciousness until it becomes a part of us.
The more we want to escape from it,
the easier we are losing our ground in reality...

這次演出的創作靈感,來自中學時期看過的一本書 ─《24個比利》(The Minds of Billy Milligan)。比利是美國史上第一位犯下重罪,結果卻獲判無罪的嫌犯,全因為他是一位多重人格分裂者。案件在當年極為哄動,引起很大爭議:他的多重人格分裂症究竟是佯裝的技倆,還是不幸的遭遇?他,是騙子還是受害者?   而事實上,多重人格的產生,許多時都與童年創傷有密切關係,那可以包括身體虐待、情緒虐待、性虐待、以及嚴重忽略等。這一切,其實都源於人內心的恐懼。

面對害怕的東西,我們可能會叫喊打逃,但原來還能引發潛藏的自我、所不為人知的思想及行為。極端情況如書中的比利,他選擇了沉睡,容許其他人格出現來為他反抗、作保護、去承受...姑勿論他們的做法是對或錯,其目的都只是為了生存。

面對動盪不安的世界,我們太容易習慣計算、習慣控制、習慣認同,逐漸掩蓋了內心的聲音,過著傳統社會和大眾眼中所認為的 「正常程序和模式」...可是,你快樂嗎?若末日明天便降臨,你會後悔嗎?

誠然,謹慎膽小如我,對於恐懼是絕不陌生,但卻偏偏喜歡上一份需要勇氣和持開放靈活態度的職業 ─ 演員。而今次的製作,竟又選擇以實驗‧創作的形式去編、導、演,跳出以往的安全框框。可想而知,排練的過程是充滿了掙扎、挫敗和痛苦。但,就當這是畢業後七年的新突破吧!   為此,我要多謝設計師們及台前幕後,你們付出的豈止設計及行動?過程中還送給我許多寶貴的意見、提議,甚至指導,使各方面也表現困乏的我,變得豐富起來!

還要特別感謝Cathy和Vincy,我感恩沿路有你們同行,未來的日子也請多多指教!

最後,數不盡的感激送給我的狐狸先生,你百般支持與忍耐,陪我渡過這充滿壓力和恐懼的十一個月!我會愛惜你給予我的任性~

未來,願我們能重新啟航,開展新生活!願每個人也找到自己喜歡的一片天空! 白日夢,也許,能成真~
