“集体舞”

沿着“组合嬲”作品的反思路线向前,继续表达对于身体的思考:身体怎样
在一个“个体化时代”进行集体合作?现实生活中的独立艺术家怎样共存于艺术的舞台,勇
敢地通过冲突创造高度和谐的艺术形式?

“集体舞”拒绝使用统一的、包摄全剧的抽象舞蹈语言进行动作化的叙述,依然保
持身体的日常性外观,贯穿全剧的“走路”被确定为动作与形象的基调,从外衣到衬裤的层
层剥除,也是一再强调身体的日常性,这样习以为常的身体其实正是艺术家“后台生活”的
真实,一点儿不妨碍她们突然呈现舞蹈的“前台性”,即矫揉造作的优雅,大众趣味的美
观。由独立舞者“携带着”各自身体当场编舞并演示,形成一个试探和诘问、对话和交易的
“agora”(集市)。

“组合嬲”艺术家“人类学表演”的取向,再一次给舞蹈剧场送来她们一再声称的“临界剧
场”(liminal theater)的范例,剧中“萨满动物”的出现不是一种装扮,恰好注释了“非扮演
性”活生生的存在,存在于当下,“它们”使用数码电子设备,阅读和观看,把现代舞蹈史的
经典场面“媒介化”为当下事件,挑战艺术品的主权和所有权经济,在演出所在城市可能会
引发艺术伦理与法律问题的讨论。

Stupid, Dance!

A gauze curtain gently divides the performance space in two halves. The performers’ bodies entertain a double presence on the stage and on a projection screen. The Niao Collective often uses improvisatory, game-like techniques to bring the dancers into a new theatrical space. The members have not collaborated in a while and are quite estranged from one another, yet their dialog begins with speechless body movements.

This seldom rehearsed piece, “Stupid, Dance!”, may be regarded as an interactive live installation. It has all the hallmarks of a Niao Collective installation/performance. Its “exhibition” time can be as long as eight hours, but it can also be condensed into a single hour on stage.

The performers are particularly fond of creating a tea-house atmosphere, in which both performers and viewers may intermingle socially. The stage technicians will also contribute through sound effects, screen projections, and lighting changes. As social choreographers, the Niao Collective enjoys confusing everyday life situations with aesthetic experience. The goal is to develop from the movements of daily life a coherent dance style, which in turn questions all life situations, thereby creating a life of its own.
