"几号病房"

我们不知道为什么要做,我们被一股群集的力量牵扯着做。我们即使做下去,我们仍不知道为什么“不知道”。丢失在过程中,丢了又得到在过程中。 空即是满,满即是空。病房中承载多少,也将丢失多少,丢失多少,也将得到多少。空与满的两个瞬间,看似两极实则一体,唯有那些过程证明着一些存在。

作品以“迷失”为创作的最初概念,通过合作者相互的交流与探索,寻找更深处潜在的动机,从而逐步发展,删减,以留下从“迷失”中抽离出来的既真实又抽象的身体语汇。在概念上,我们从“迷失”开始,最后走向两个分支:丢失与共生,作品在30分钟的时间里,将两个分支逐步展现。

作品名《几号病房》的解释:选“几”字并非取疑问的意思,而是取“圣人之所以极深而研几也”中的“几”。“几”是一种将动的状态,动得很难捉摸,古人以研究“几”来探究事物的根本。取此名算是对自己的一种鞭策和要求,希望作品能够去探究表面之下的更深层次的意义。

“Sickroom # Ji”

We don’t know why we do, we are pushed by a strong collected force to do. Even we continue doing, we also don’t know why we don’t know. Losing in the process, and gaining in the process. Empty is Full, Full is Empty. As how many sickroom accomodates as how many we will lose; As how many we lose as how many we will gain. Empty and full are two moments, which look like extremely different, but the same subject actually. Only the process between the two moments can prove something has been here.

“Lost”is the original concept for the production, we look for deeper motivation during each other’s discussion and exploration, and then develop step by step, and cut redundance to keep some body language which is real and abstract. We follow “Lost”, and the we find two branches in the end: Losing and Coexisting. During the 30 minutes performance, we will spread out step by step.

The name of “Sickroom # Ji” description: “Ji” is from a Chinese ancient sentence, which means a status to move, “will move not not”, and “Difficult to judget if move or not”. The ancients research the “Ji” philosophy to understand the essence of subject. I use “Ji” as the name to request myself: Go to find the essence under the surface, which is a kind of self encouragement.
