Folding Echoes

​回聲摺疊

Solo Dance Work

Creation 2016

​Duration: 40-45 mins

我們如何面對世界,世界又如何定義著我對它的理解?
甚麼是常態?我在已知的世界還可以創造甚麼?

How do we deem the world? How does the world define our perception of it?

What does it mean by norm/regularity/understanding? Can I still create anything in a known world?

“編舞者的表演力度非常精煉緊密,英語說白有戲劇節奏的起伏,又如流水的律動順著場景調度而迴轉,語言、聲音跟身體動作既共生又抵抗,以幽默的自我調侃一面應對、一面留下無盡懸念引領觀眾沉澱思考。”
--洛楓(著名舞評)

“Joseph Lee gets the pad-special-award for extra strong presence on stage, highest energy of acting, interactive depiction power and absolute physical precision!”
--International Performance Festival, Mainz, Germany

《回聲摺疊》嘗試以理性角度解構當代舞在一個劇場空間內如何被解讀及觀看的舞蹈劇場作品。

 

若你怕看不懂當代舞,李偉能這首獨舞將會為你詳盡解釋當代舞中的涵義,以介乎幽默與嚴肅之間與觀眾一起重新認識劇場和舞蹈。以建構某種可以被理解的邏輯為起點,包括各種劇場內的符號、指示、聲音、語言及燈光等,然後再去打破其秩序,在失落的邏輯中建構出另一種可被解讀的形態。

 

當中以日常的動作素材、聲音、語言等的同步,再以重覆的步調去加強當中的關係,並逐步推演到後來的脫勾,在之前的認知中產生歧義。作品題目中的回聲既是指向演出當中語言與情境的重現,同時亦是帶領觀眾去思考劇場空間以及舞蹈的意義,讓他們產生疑問及好奇,並體驗一種與自身過往經驗的對話,是為回聲。

Folding Echoes is a solo dance piece exploring the way contemporary dance performance being seen, interpreted and comprehended, especially in a theatre setting in modern society.

 

If you feel like you didn’t understand some aspects of contemporary dance, Joseph Lee explains it to you. As in a lecture-performance he connects his ironic treatise about communication in contemporary dance with extravagant solo dance inserts. The whole performance tries to build up the logic between symbols in the theatre, language used, sound and lighting design, and then to disconnect the links among them from time to time to distort the logic that we conceived earlier, thus, creating another layer of cognitive logic to the audiences.

 

The materials in the work include the possible meanings of movements, relation between light, sound and space, as well as the gender issue which is broadly-talked-about, but everything points to the theme of ambiguity of our cognitive experience, which could be different among each individual. “Echoes” as in the title refers to the experience that the audience would experience once they enter the theatre, and when they started to question about the unexpected choreography choices, they initiate the inner conversation with their past experience, almost like echoes with themselves.
