san francisco, style, fashion, travel, lifestyle curated by Ariel Tzu-Chi

Fashion is about projecting where you're going in life.

Therefore, life is fashion, fashion is style.

That's the lifestyle I am producing. 
 

風尚是一種生活品味的投射

因此生活即是風尚,風尚便是品味

這就是我想實踐的生活方式

Show | NYC: Sleep No More


It doesn't matter if you're a theatre lover or not; Sleep No More is definitely something you should go watch at least once if you ever have a chance. For the experience is indescribable; only if you were there then you'll know how it feels to be at the show and why it is a nominated much-watch by Time Magazine

The history and background story of Sleep No More can be easily wiki-ed, though I'd recommend anyone who's interested should go without a clue. Allow me to skip the introduction and jump right into my thoughts of this intimate experience. 

如果有機會到紐約,除了百老匯之外,我個人很推薦這個實驗劇場秀 Sleep No More。不論你是不是喜歡看劇的人,這樣的經驗都很值得擁有。就像百老匯一樣,不是每個人都會喜歡,但是大多數人到紐約都會儘量去體驗看看,一樣的道理。

關於劇情設定和故事背景,網路上都很容易找文章。但目前中文維基不到,但是有批踢踢。但是如果真的有興趣,建議不要看太多介紹,完全毫無頭緒的體驗,才是對這齣戲最棒的直接接觸。


The Relationship

We were threw into a black box with a tiny pin hole; the mask blocked the vision and the identity; it was dark. No talking was allowed; none of any connection between each other was allowed, either. We were ghosts wandering around, yet we were intended observer trying to figure a way out.  The identity was anonymous. The six senses were attuned. You were auto-guided with curiosity intuitively, 'cause no one knew what was going on. Right before the anxiety kinked in, the scene started with great tension. You had no way but to pay attention, and without trying to figure out what's next, you're already following the character line. 

像是被丟進一個密封盒子裡,帶上了面具,感官神經緊繃,任何的接觸或交談都被禁止。沈默;密閉恐懼像是隨時會發作般,身分不明,我們像幽魂一般遊走,卻又如偵探似的緊緊跟隨,卻一無所知。

開始分不清楚眼前的,究竟是戲,還是我們是戲。一旦好奇,一旦跟著快速移動的身影探頭試圖看清,腳步已經入戲,來不及抽身。好奇是強迫的,繼續卻是自找的。


The Performance 

We were so close to each other.  It was almost like it was us who were dancing, fighting, kissing, struggling; together or separated didn't matter; the detached attachment is yet too powerful to doubt. I can hear the breathe, I can hear the pulse. So vivid that I almost lost my breathe.

直覺跟著好奇一起,在焦慮開始之前,他們跳起舞來,緊湊,親密。距離親近到,呼吸與心跳都像是自己的。浴缸裡的水濺在腳邊、掂起的腳尖跳動奔跑,木板嘎咋作響...


The Set Ups

First thing I noticed was smell, and then sight, sound, and touch rolled in at once. Each room has a slightly different smell - maybe I was being too narcotic, but some smell smelled haunted.  

光是這些精細的場景就值回那票價。關於視覺之外,首先我注意到的事氣味。也許是我多想,但似乎每個房間都有不同的味道,鬼魅般的氣息,神經兮兮。


The Most Personal

My most favorite set up gotta be the hospital. To me it's more like an asylum. The ammonia smell, greenish yellow ambience and the blood and soul lingering here. So overwhelmed that I am deeply engaged, and didn't feel like running away. 

That is all I can tell, no more, no less. All after all, sleep is illusional, anxiety is real; a soul in chaos, we live no more. 

我最喜歡的場景非這個病房莫屬,更像是精神病院。冷色調,阿摩尼亞的刺鼻,白色床單下不清楚是軀殼還是床組的突起,一切那麼強烈,毛細孔微微開啟,卻只想一探究竟。

關於這一切,我只能說這麼多,祝你,好夢。
