About Asian Theatre 5-Year Symbiosis 

In the natural world, there is a phenomenon: When a plant survives on its own, it seems small and pale. And when it lives amongst other plants, it thrives and flourishes. People call this kind of interdependence in the botanical world ‘symbiosis.’ In fact, in the human world, this also happens in communities and is a common phenomenon. Symbiosis happens in nature as well as in societies. In this system, any one party benefits from it much more than being alone, thus the equation “1+1>2.”

From 2018, Theatre Horizon plans to use 5 years’ time to search in Mainland China, Macao, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea for young and vibrant theatre groups with potentials to establish an Asian theatre symbiotic system to influence each other.

THEATRE HORIZON Presents
Asian Theatre 5-Year Symbiosis - 2nd Year

Resonance with the Earth Drumming Workshop
- A Ten Bulls Workshop

Instructor: Huang Chih-lin (Taiwan)

The character「鼓」or drum means the sound of spring equinox. It also means land. In the evolution of man, the drum and the human are very close. Humans beat on drums and chant in life to express themselves. The participants of this workshop will be invited to start their journey with the sound of the drum. While breathing, let the heart be at the present, and slowly listen to the sound of the homeland.

Remembering the sound of the drumming during the fire dragon dance in Ping Che, Ta Kwu Ling, when combined with movement, by connecting your past history with the drumming at present, open new memory for new experiences, and resound with the earth.

The second year of Theatre Horizon's Asian Theatre 5-Year Symbiosis includes a site-specific theatre performance Ten Bulls, three workshops namely, Songwriting to Explore the Meaning of Home, Resonance with the Earth Drumming Workshop, and My Body My Home and post-performance talks.


Huang Chih-lin (Taiwan)
Instructor

莫比斯圓環創作公社聯合藝術總監
獲雲門流浪者、文化部藝術新秀獎項
『老鼓手生命鼓譜』計畫主持人
擊鼓跨界劇場《榖雨桐花》《鼓子半夢》導演

黃子翎(本名黃智琳),台北人,佛光藝術學研究所畢業,從事戲劇、擊鼓表演二十餘年。早年接受優人神鼓紮實的身體表演訓練十餘載,啟發內在探索表演者「藝與道」的連結之路。『深信舞台的能量來自於生命的力量』,砥礪自己作一位誠實的表演者。而她在舞台上表演能量的專注與誠摯,受到各地觀眾喜愛與合作導演肯定。

近年,以流浪的方式開啟「老鼓手生命鼓譜」的採集,從黃河到恆河近三年的時間,與老鼓手對談,體悟到「有人才有鼓,有生活才有譜」,在資訊快速傳遞的今日,黃子翎從古老鼓譜與世代相傳的鼓聲的圖騰爬梳中,受到古老文化底蘊的震盪,她的個人創作核心圈繞在『人、土地、生命』為主,踩在自身文化上探索鼓與人真實力量的關聯,擺脫傳統鼓陣的演出形式,不斷以鼓為平台跨界與不同藝術層面對話,希冀在碰撞的火花中挖掘更深的文化精神,貼近鼓與人的距離,也藉劇場語彙,拉近觀眾與鼓的距離,翻轉當代擊鼓劇場藝術。
