鄧樹榮戲劇工作室簡介

「鄧樹榮戲劇工作室」為註冊慈善團體,其前身是創立於1996 年的「無人地帶」。「無人地帶」創作的作品超過二十項,當中較具代表性的包括《生與死三部曲》──《三級女子殺人事件》(1997)、《解剖二千年》(1999) 及《我的殺人故事》(1999) ──《真面目》(1998) 、《我們互不相識的一小時》(2000)、《生死界》(2002)、《死亡實驗室》(2002)、《代理阿媽教》(2003)、《日落前後的兩三種做愛方式》(2003)、《人、椅、龜:一齣關於文化的冥想》(2004) 以及《泰特斯》(2008)。「無人地帶」的作品曾應邀參加紐約韓信國際木偶戲劇節、三藩市鬼節、香港藝術節、澳門藝穗節及新加坡華藝節,並曾獲香港舞台劇獎多個獎項。

 「無人地帶」於2009年易名為「鄧樹榮戲劇工作室」,定位為一所戲劇硏究及創作中心,使觀眾透過觀賞具創意的劇場作品而追求有質素的生活。工作室的目標是創作既能彰顯香港文化實力,又能在市場上獨立營運的長壽劇目;同時亦會積極促進國際文化交流,增強香港劇場在世界舞台上的影響力。團隊並期望與工作室理念一致的不同單位合作,共同為香港的文化藝術出一分力。

 工作室的作品包括《泰特斯2.0》(2009)、 康樂文化事務署東亞運動會劇場系列《形.體.澎湃》(策劃) (2009)及《後代》(2010,與新加坡戲劇盒聯合製作),近期的作品為《打轉教室》及《舞‧雷雨》。

工作室於2012年起獲得民政事務局的藝能發展資助,並於同年成為香港藝術中心駐場藝團。

在2012,「工作室」製作、重演及發展具持久性的地標式演出《打轉教室》,8月於英國愛丁堡藝穗節上演三星期,獲傳媒五星級評價,被選為藝穗節2000多個作品中排行55位,並獲得「首度參加獎」提名,9月及12月在港作二度及三度公演。10至12月完成北京、上海、杭州、汕頭及深圳的巡演,更被中央電視台邀請拍攝,將演出介紹給全國觀眾。短短一年內,《打轉教室》已上演52場,累積觀眾人次為一萬人。「工作室」同時將香港戲劇帶上國際舞台,《泰特斯》(2012) 去年5月參加倫敦文化奧運,在環球劇場演出,《泰特斯2.0》巡演挪威、波蘭、北京及台北。《舞‧雷雨》於去年10月香港新視野藝術節首演後,旋即被邀請在今年2月新加坡華藝節演出,好評如潮。

 

Tang Shu-wing Theatre Studio, a registered charity, was formerly known as No Man’s Land which was founded in 1996. The more renowned works of No Man’s Land include Three Women in Pearl River Delta (1997), Millennium Autopsy (1999), My Murder Story (1999), The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other (2000), Between Life and Death (2002), Deathwatch (2002) and The Two or Three Ways of Making Love around Sunset (2003). Works of No Man’s Land have been presented in the Henson International Puppet Theatre Festival of New York, San Francisco Ghost Festival, Hong Kong Arts Festival and Macau Fringe Festival and have received a number of awards in the Hong Kong Drama Awards. In 2009, No Man’s Land was renamed Tang Shu-wing Theatre Studio, with the mission to bring quality theatre works to wider audience. Being a centre for theatrical research and creation, the Studio is dedicated to promote a better quality of life to the public through their experience in participation of performing arts. Having physical theatre and minimalist aesthetics as its artistic direction, the Studio has a vision to bring new paths to the Hong Kong theatre. It aims at creating long-running productions, showcasing the unique culture of Hong Kong and at the same time exploring potentials to operate independently in the market. We also hope to facilitate cultural exchange, so that the theatre of Hong Kong will be given a proper place on the world stage. The Studio is open to cooperate with any organisations or individuals who share the same vision as ours. The Studio is financially supported by The Arts Capacity Development Fund of the Home Affairs Bureau of Hong Kong since 2012 and has also established a long-term collaboration with the Hong Kong Arts Centre as its Residential Theatre Company. The works of the Studio include Titus Andronicus, Titus Andronicus 2.0, Next Generations (co-production with Drama Box, Singapore), Detention and Thunderstorm. Titus Andronicus was invited to participate in the Globe to Globe Festival at the Shakespeare’s Globe in the London Cultural Olympiad 2012 and became the first Cantonese production ever performed in this theatre, followed by an international tour of Titus Andronicus 2.0 in Fredrikstad (Norway), Wroclaw and Bytom (Poland), Beijing and Taipei whilst Detention, before embarking a 5-cities tour in China, was highly acclaimed by the U.K. media in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012. Thunderstorm, premiered in the New Vision Arts Festival of Hong Kong in October 2012, was performed in Huayi Festival of Arts in Singapore in February 2013 with enthusiastic reception.
