《並不只有我》是與聲音藝術家姚少龍合作的作品,嘗試探索人類情感交流上獨特而重要的行為,告罪,從而引申至當中角色的權力關係和期望,在西方宗教中以懺悔作為尋求原諒並成為信仰的核心,以及在不同情況下被逼使認罪的個體和現象。

 

姚少龍以十個卡帶式錄音機去紀錄表演者現場的聲音,然後循環播放,在空間中建構疊加、重複而卻又互相呼應的聲景讓表演者去以身體回應。當中的聲音素材包括抽象的發聲模式,亦有具不同文化意涵及具指向性的語言。道歉、告罪、懺悔的身體狀態如何被表述,自身發出的聲音同時作為動作重要的導向,而最終當懺悔作為某些情況下的表演,我們如何看待其反身性,以及空間中聲音維度的掌控。

 

Confession Ain’t Solo is a contemporary dance work collaborating with sound artist Alex Yiu, exploring the unique, yet important behaviour of human being, confession, which leads to the complex discussion about the power dynamics between the one who confesses and the one who receive the confession; the necessity of seeking forgiveness in many western religious philosophies; the notion of Original Sin; the phenomena of people being forced to confess.

 

Yiu uses 10 cassette players to record the dancer's sound live and then play in loops in order to create an accumulated, unique and interwoven soundscape offering the space and emotions for the dancer to react to. The sound produced includes abstract vocalization, as well as text with certain cultural implication regarding sin, confession and apologies. It also portrays the state of our body in the situation of apology and confession in the midst of ever-changing soundscape in the surrounding. Reflexivity of sound and language produced and the control of the soundscape by Yiu simulates the process of confession as a performance under certain.
