CHINA NEW WRITING
中國新寫作


DAVEY ANDERSON

ARTIST FROM NATION THEATRE OF SCOTLAND

My passion is new writing. I wanted to take a group of Chinese writers through a collaborative process and produce plays that were unique to this creative exchange between Scotland and China. Literally hundreds of Chinese writers wanted to come and take part in the first workshop National Theatre of Scotland ran in Beijing. They all had distinctive voices and bright ideas. Our first challenge was selecting which writers to invite into the room. Then we had to negotiate the language barrier, as well as the different sets of cultural reference points, artistic traditions, social backgrounds, political frameworks and so on. In amongst all that, we shared ideas, interests, inspirations and ways of working. I asked lots of questions about what it is like to live in China right now. These plays are the result of that conversation. A few tiny peep holes into parts of China we don’t often get to see.

I have been participated in several Òran Mór’s international
“a Play, a Pie and a Pint” season. We were trying to bring the different voices from different parts of the world to Scotland. I have been to Beijing Fringe previously and talked with lots of directors and actors, actresses. They achieved a great success with very limited resources, which is similar with Edinburgh Fringe. However, sometimes, we are missing the playwrights there. Director Tian Qinxin is a very famous Chinese stage director. She is interested in this topic and she is taking the lead. It is very important for us to have the project right now.

蘇格蘭國家劇院藝術家

我非常癡迷於新寫作。我想帶一組中國作家一起,通過合作的方式來做 幾部戲,這將是獨一無二的機會來促進蘇格蘭和中國的交流。非常多的 中國作家希望能夠參加蘇格蘭國家劇院在北京舉辦的第一次工作坊。他 們的想法都棒極了,所以我們遇到的第一個挑戰就是要選擇邀請誰來參 加我們的工作坊,然後我們進行了關於語言障礙,以及對不同文化參照 點,例如藝術傳統、社會背景、政治框架等問題的討論,與此同時,我們 也分享了各自的想法、興趣所在以及靈感來源和工作方式。對於中國當下 生活的現狀,我問了不少的問題。這些劇都是我們那次會談的成果,管中 窺豹似的來揭示我們不曾常見到的中國。

我曾多次參加奧蘭摩爾(Oran Mor’s)的國際戲劇季(一個戲,一個派, 一杯酒)。我們試圖將世界各地不同的聲音帶到蘇格蘭,我已經和很多北 京戲劇節上的導演和演員接觸過,他們在有限的資源內取得了巨大的成 就,這和我們愛丁堡戲劇節很相像。田沁鑫是很知名的舞臺導演,她對新 寫作項目非常感興趣,我覺得我們現在開始這樣的的項目非常重要。
