About

Many years ago, puppeteer Shih Pei-Yu visited Dordrecht in the south of Netherlands, where puppet master Damiët van Dalsum hosted the annual International Puppet Festival. There, she witnessed unprecedented forms of puppetry, using seemingly ordinary spaces as extraordinary performance venues —the corner of a library, the living rooms of local residents, and even a backyard.

Inspired by these bold ideas, the first Close to You Festival began in Taipei in 2010. It shattered audiences’ perceptions of what a puppet theatre space can be and bridged the distance between viewers and puppeteers. Accompanied by a guide, audiences tour the streets and experience puppetry performances that turn regular living spaces into not only stages, but characters and texts.

Close to You Festival founder Shih Pei-Yu will share her experiences, offering insights into the ups and downs of organising and curating such a festival.

許多年前,佩玉造訪在於荷蘭南方的一個古老城市多德瑞克市( Dordrecht),偶戲大師大咪・戴爾桑(Damiët van Dalsum)在那兒主持每年一度的荷蘭國際偶戲節。 在那裡,我們觀看到前所未見的偶戲形式、欣賞到驚人的大膽創意─圖書館的一個角落、當地居民的住家客廳、後院,都可以是演出場地。

延續荷蘭國際偶戲節「客廳系列」觀賞的感動,於是2010在台北舉辦了第一屆超親密小戲節在台北,打破了觀眾對於劇場空間想像,拉進了觀演關係的距離,巷弄巡禮領隊相伴、物件偶戲之實驗提問,如同偶戲國的小旅行,小戲節將表演置入於日常場域,將生活空間化為「角色」「文本」「舞台」,本座談由創辦人石佩玉分享創辦與策劃超親密小戲節中的各種酸甜苦辣。
