《ㄉㄧㄥ.Watch》

D-i-n-g.Watch

2020 / 沈浸式劇場

2020 / immersive theater

 

Watch! 小心你的言行、注意你的思想!你被盯/釘住了!

這是一個被全面監控的年代。

 

被囚禁的年歲裡,我們失去選擇。

統治者試圖掌控我們的所有,我們的思想、我們的歷史、我們的呼吸、我們的關係都要按照它的邏輯運行。

每天清晨被打開鐵門的咿軋之聲驚醒,永遠也不知道下一個「特別接見」會不會就是自己, 徒刑變成死刑。

即便如此,我們仍小心翼翼地念著、愛著、思考著、學習著、甚至反抗著!為了信念,努力想活下去… 

 

〈ㄉㄧㄥ.WATCH!〉運用劇場沉浸式裝置,讓觀者置身於全面監控的時代荒謬中,見證極權暴力宰制下無所畏懼的真實情愛,並一窺白色盜火者們紛雜而多元的面貌。透過呈現更多元的光譜、更細膩感人的故事,將焦點放回每一個獨特個體在集權宰制下真實的生命,試圖在相對扁平的主流敘事之外,為綠島曾作為政治監獄島的記憶,提供更豐富、更當代、也更栩栩如生的想像。


作品包涵三個展間:「毋忘在莒」塑造出全面監控/思想改造的時代荒謬;「家書」呈現在被監控的恐懼和內體的禁箇下,被集權宰制之生命的真實情愛與痛苦;「美好的未來」試圖引領觀眾一窺政治受難者的理想、掙扎、能動性、和面對死亡的無所畏懼,因為槍響不是一切的終結。

 

Watch! Watch your words and deeds, watch your thoughts! You are eyed/nailed!

This is an era where everything is under surveillance.

In the years we were imprisoned, we lost our choice.

The ruler tries to keep us under his fully control; our thoughts, our history, our breathing, and our relationships—all have to run according to his will.

We are waked with terror every morning by the creaking sound of the process of opening the iron door. We never know if ourselves will be the next to attend the "special interview", which means our imprisonment will become a death penalty.

Nevertheless, we still gingerly read, love, think, learn, and even resist and try to live our faith...

 

D-i-n-g. Watch uses immersive theatrical installations to allow the viewers to experience the ridiculous full surveillance of the time, witness the fearless true love under totalitarian rule, and get a glimpse of the diverse features and spirits of the political dissidents during the White Terror. The work attempts to give a richer, more vivid, and more contemporary picture of Green Island in its days as a political prison island, in comparison to the relatively flat mainstream narrative. By presenting a broader spectrum and telling the stories in a more detailed and resonant way, it shifts the focus back on the real life of each unique individual under totalitarian rule.

 

The work comprises three theatrical installation booths: "Don't Forget the Time at Jyu" which portrays the ridiculous total surveillance / thought transform of the time; "Home Letters" which presents, despite the fear under surveillance and the physical confinement, the true love and struggles of life under totalitarian rule; and "Beautiful Future" which guides the audience to see the political victims' ideals, struggles, agency, and fearlessness in the face of their death, as the gunshot does not put an end to all.
