Repot [Mind+Mine]
[思想+自分]報告。

repot [mind+mine]  or

the languages forest

This is a formal yet informal report. Premiered in 2006 at Kuala Lumpur As part of the “Break-ing: Pentas Theatre Collaboration Project” it now continues its international tour to Japan and singapore in 2008 Repot [Mind+Mine] humorously explores the situations and irony in the Malaysian lingo If they could go back in time, if they walk into the world of P.Ramlee, if they tell you and me – Language is only a strange kind of blah, blah, blah, blah, blah…

F eatures a madcap series of scenes where four Chinese-language actors re-enact the interrogation of language; they mimic their own monologues and movements… then re-enact interviews with a range of Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien and Hakka-speaking citizens; then there’s the P Ramlee movie… Coming after a piece about silence, this pieces is instead about noise, language as noise, performance as noise, noise that that is glorious, chaotic and alive… hilarious” Flying Inkpot Singapore

中文簡介

[思想+自分]報告  /  熱帶語林

如果他們的時間可以重来
如果他們走進了比。南利的世界
如果他們告訴你。。。和我
在恒常落雨的南國
“語言“只是一種吊跪的叭啦叭啦叭啦叭啦

這是一份正經又不正經的演出报告。作品融合了劇場輕鬆且幽默的表演形式,在舞台上呈現四段對馬來西亞有關“語言“課題為探討。演出内容包括,以風趣的方式呈現訪問社会一般群眾生活中對語言的經歷與態度,再從學術性角度讓大家認識甚麼是語言、國語及母語。另外,為了進一部了解另一族群的生活與文化,演出將帶領大家進入馬來電影P. Ramlee 的世界,去體驗不同民族文化的差異所在。2006年参與“擊破:劇場合作交流計劃“於吉隆坡首演,并於2008年受邀到東京及新加坡巡回演出。

“[思想+自分]報告” 演出不僅挑戰觀眾對於“語言”的既定想法,也挑戰了我們對於語言課題以外的思考,演出並以幽默調侃的方式来探討語言在馬來西亞的窘境和吊詭性。
