Far away in Shan-Ka-La, I thought I had escaped the city—yet why has its symphony never ceased?
我一直以为我逃到了山旮旯咁远,可为何城市的交响曲不曾停息?

About

“Digging, sowing, watering, mulching—then rest and wait patiently. If rest is a natural part of growth, why do we find it so hard to take a break?” 

For one whole year, Orang Orang Drum Theatre took a hands-on approach by spending three days a week in the heights of Shan-Ka-La: creating work, learning the basics of construction and farming, adapting to the unfamiliar rhythms of orchard life. For the other four days, they’d be back in the familiar city, teaching and performing as usual. By shuttling between these lifestyles, these places, they began to compare and reflect on the relationship between people and the environments they inhabit. 

Listen: the drum echoes in Shan-Ka-La.
Look: a snapshot of the city on stage.
Between these, we untangle the modern riddle: What does it mean to belong?

Kaka-Lala [Cantonese] ~ceruk-meruk; every little corner of the world
Place a “mountain” before it and it becomes Shan-Ka-La: somewhere that’s in the middle of nowhere.

This production is presented by Orang Orang Drum Theatre and supported by Ministry Of Tourism, Arts & Culture, The Actors Studio Foundation, The Japan Foundation Kuala Lumpur and Filamen. 

“锄地、播种、浇水、覆盖堆肥,然後休息、耐心等待。如果休息是自然成长的一部分,究竟是什么让我们停不下来?“

人人人鼓剧场以实际行动,为期一年体验一周三天在山上(山Karak)创作并体验陌生的果园生活,学习简单建筑与农耕;其他四天回到熟悉的城市继续教课、表演与生活,尝试在往返两地截然不同的生活经验中,相互对照且思考人与环境的关系。

听鼓声在山旮旯回荡,
于剧场照看城市宿影,
尝试解一道现代生活的归属习题。

Throughout this ten-year journey, the act of drumming has somehow led them to consider the connection between surviving and living. So, in 2021, OODT embarked on the Shan-Ka-La project—the simple, unpretentious orchard life served to refresh the heavy palate of the city’s constant symphony, allowing the drummers to sample the “natural flavours” of life. In the meantime, they continued to reflect on what it means to “drum”, and explore further possibilities contained within “drumming and living”.

人人人在过去的作品(2014《独角戏/Hidup Ini Senget》、2015 《众鼓歌/LaguKu》、2017《The Dialogue》、2019《众鼓歌2.0/LaguKu2.0》) 从离不开对于城市生活的思考。

在这10年的创作过程中,“击鼓”这件事也不经意地引领着鼓剧团思考生存与生活的关系。2021年,鼓剧团启动《山Karak》计划,单纯、直接的果园生活淡化了味道浓郁的城市交响曲,让鼓手有机会品尝生活的“原味”,继续反思“击鼓”的意义并实验“击鼓与生活”的其他可能性。

Using the drum’s raw power to create a vocabulary of theatre, and using theatre’s expansive multitudes (masks, props, song, dance, drama, etc.) to enrich meaning in the voices of the drum.

Besides the use of various instruments, the drummers’ physical movements are also an expression of “drum theatre”. How can the combined rhythms of their movements become a vehicle for meaning? This is also a central line of inquiry in this creative process. 

以“鼓”的原动力创造“剧场”语汇,然后再以“剧场”的包容与多样性(面具、道具、歌、舞、戏等)丰富“鼓”的声音意义。
除了各种乐器的使用,鼓手的肢体表达也是”鼓剧场“与观众说话的媒介。它们节奏的组合该如何成为意义的载体,是这次的创作其中一个重要的工作方向。


Since its establishment in 2013, Orang Orang Drum Theatre’s core members Boyz Chew, Zyee Leow, and Damien Leow have been flitting between music, dance, and theatre, looking for a platform of expression for drum theatre. They led a team to participate in international music festivals such as Sziget Festival 2019, WOMADELAIDE 2020, Venice Theatre Arts Festival, Venice Open Stage, and the Danse en Ville Dance Festival in Belgium and Germany. In recent years, they have brought their troupe to tour many cultural and dance arts festivals in Europe, such as in France, Hungary, and Serbia. Through interactions with traditional cultures, they explore the space between tradition and modernity. 

The word ‘orang’ means people, and the idea at the heart of OODT is to bring the arts to the people.

由2013年成立至今,人人人鼓剧场核心人物周顺兴、廖世仪以及廖慧鸣,不断地游走于音乐、舞蹈与剧场之间,为鼓剧场探寻展现的场域。他们带着一行人参与国际音乐节‘Sziget Festival 2019’,‘WOMADELAIDE 2020’也曾参与威尼斯剧场艺术节 ‘Venice Open Stage’,同时也到过比利时与德国参与舞蹈节’Danse en ville’。2016-2017年,他们也带着演出走访欧洲各国的民俗与舞蹈艺术节,如法国、匈牙利以及塞尔维亚,通过与传统文化交流,让剧团在传统与当代之间游戏。
人、人、人,形成一个“众”字,让艺术作品可以更加接近群众,是人人人鼓剧场最重要的创团理念。‘
