立即发布 – 继《单身亚洲俏佳人》大获成功之后,罗敏仪 (Michelle Law) 为21世纪澳洲带来貝爾沃街劇院 (Belvoir St Theatre) 全新跨世代喜剧作品 《牡丹小姐》重返墨尔本。罗敏仪的作品将于8月5日到22日在墨尔本艺术中心的费尔法克斯表演厅 (Fairfax Studio) 举行墨尔本首演,邀请观众通过这部多语种剧作探索选美大赛浮华、迷人、略带疯癫的世界。演出时搭配英语、广东话及简体中文三种字幕。 《牡丹小姐》讲述的是第二代澳洲华裔莉莉的故事,她的祖母当年曾在香港获得选美皇后,祖母对此毫不在乎时代已经改变,莉莉已生活在全新的国度、新的世纪,但她意识到莉莉夾在两种文化之间。为了鼓励莉莉重新传承家庭传统,祖母要她参加华人社区竞争激烈的"牡丹小姐"选美比赛。祖母的要求不容反驳。 罗敏仪曾亲身参加过选美比赛。这段经历激发了她创造了莉莉这个角色和故事,及这部关于身份认同和家庭的剧作。 "我在十几岁时参加过一次选美比赛,赢得了最佳个性奖。那可是在选美比赛里!"罗敏仪兴奋地说。 《牡丹小姐》由Courtney Stewart(曾出演貝爾沃街劇院的《单身亚洲俏佳人》和执导悉尼剧团 (Sydney Theatre Company) 的《白珍珠》)导演,此剧演员阵容强大,由剧作家转为演员的罗敏仪(SBS的《回家女王》)领衔,包括陈金燕 (Gabrielle Chan)(SBS的《恶鬼》、悉尼剧团的《中美共同体》)、Jing Xuan-Chan(SBS的《罗家趣事》)、Kaeng Chan(《Eddy和Viv》、《游戏学校》)、李美宝 (Mabel Li)(SBS的《尾矿》)和吴士容 (Shirong Wu) (《被诅咒者!》)。 罗敏仪擅长从非常个人的角度讲述故事,在剧作中为所有观众营造出真实的文化体验,这在《牡丹小姐》中也不例外。 她说:"我在写《牡丹小姐》时,想到了我不会说英语的祖母。我想要与观众分享我和她之间这个关于文化差异和世代隔阂的故事,我也希望很多其他说中文的祖父母能与他们的子女和孙辈分享这个故事。" 尽管《牡丹小姐》原本应在2020年疫情之前推出,但现在上演这部作品的时机却是再好不过。 罗敏仪说:"约有5%澳洲人口有华裔血统,200多年来,我们一直是这个国家历史中的一部分。但在澳洲剧院里,关于我们的故事却少之又少。我迫不及待地想把《牡丹小姐》分享给我们的社群,继续拓展华人族裔的历史。" 墨尔本艺术中心和Asia TOPA隆重推出 《牡丹小姐》 创作者:罗敏仪 导演:Courtney Stewart 费尔法克斯表演厅 | 2021年8月5日到22日 时长:2小时20 分钟(包括幕间休息) 建议观赏年龄:15岁以上 星期二 – 晚上6:30 星期三 – 中午12点和晚上7:30 星期四和星期五 – 晚上7:30 星期六 – 下午2点和晚上7:30 星期天 – 下午5点 创作团队 演出者:陈金燕 (Gabrielle Chan) 、Jing-Xuan Chan、Kaeng Chan、罗敏仪 (Michelle Law)、李美宝 (Mabel Li)、吴士容 (Shirong Wu) 剧作者: 罗敏仪...
