關注香港芭蕾舞團《紅樓夢—夢紅樓》舞劇於首演後因技術問題而刪去部份情節事件

有關香港芭蕾舞團《紅樓夢—夢紅樓》舞劇於首演後因技術問題而刪去部份情節事件,香港舞台技術及設計人員協會深表關注,現特此公開表明我們的立場:

  1. 香港芭蕾舞團作為香港九大旗艦藝團之一,具備完整的技術及製作部門。若因舞台技術及製作限制而未能執行有關錄像及字幕要求,理應及早察覺。根據現有資料,香港芭蕾舞團於總排練及首演後,因未有字幕文字輔助解說而決定刪掉涉及文革內容的情節。我們希望香港芭蕾舞團能進一步澄清是次事件是否純因技術層面而未能執行有關技術要求,還是涉及內容情節的審查,以釋公眾疑慮;

  2. 香港是一處東西方藝術匯聚的地方,倘若自我審查的意識形態滲進本港藝術圈子,將嚴重影響和窒礙香港藝術發展和創作成果。我們呼籲本港所有藝術從業員,一起擁護藝術創作自由,堅持創作的自主和自由創作的價值;

  3. 我們欣喜香港芭蕾舞團於11月1日晚上的演出將盡力把刪去的文字、錄像及舞蹈部份全數展示,讓作品以完全版示人。惟我們並不能接受因非專業藝術判斷或政治立場而干預藝術創作。藝術創作的刪改和最終決定權應在創作人員手中,不應由藝團內外非專業創作人員作出干預。

謹此呼籲所有香港藝術工作者都能堅持守護香港創作自由。

Prague Quadrennial 2015

布拉格舞台設計四年展(PQ)是由捷克文化部主辦,始於1967年,是目前全球最大型,且唯一以當代劇場設計及劇場建築為主題的世界性展覽及競賽活動,過去數屆香港都有派出代表參與這項被譽為全世界劇場設計工作者及學生的奧林匹克盛會,集展覽、交流、嘉許和學習等的國際交流活動。下屆四年展將於2015年夏季於舉行。

The Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space is the world’s largest exhibition in the field of scenography and theatre architecture. The first PQ took place in 1967, and since then every four years it welcomes representatives from more than 70 countries around the world to Prague.

The most recent Prague Quadrennial in 2011 lasted 10 days, included more than 500 live performances, attracted nearly 50,000 visitors from around the world and took place in more than 30 spaces around the city. The main exhibition space inhabits a total area of ​​approximately 12,000 square meters, where more than 1,000 artists and students from around the world can present their work.

The upcoming 13th edition of the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space will be held in June 2015 and the main theme is SharedSpace: Music, Weather Politics 2013 – 2016, which is common for international project the PQ is organizing in cooperation with 13 European partners. The core of the project are symposia, meetings and exhibitions throughout Europe and the project will culminate at Prague Quadrennial in June 2015 in Prague.

World Stage Design 2013

World Stage Design is an exhibition of international performance design, initiated by OISTAT that offers a complimentary but alternative exhibition to the Prague Quadrennial, Distinctively exhibiting the work of individuals rather than countries. It was designed to be a truly international exhibition not located in one city, country or continent.
Beginning in 2005 in Toronto and then repeated again in Seoul in 2009, it was logical that WSD For 2013 should come to Europe, WSD 2013 will be held at The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama (RWCMD), in Cardiff, Wales, the United Kingdom. Cardiff is one of Europe’s youngest capitals, a small, vibrant, multicultural city situated just 2 hours by train from London but very much capital of an independent country, with a proud history and language.

It is the collective goal to create in WSD 2013 not only an exhibition representative of the work of individual designers, but to create a centre of activity, diversity, widening participation and multicultural exchange. It is of paramount importance to make this event relevant to the exhibitors, allowing them to reflect on their individual practice in the context of global developments, by meeting and sharing their work, their process and philosophy. It is also a key to allow a wider audience of students, teachers and the general public to experience and form a greater understanding of the work of those who create the performance environment.
