  • The Self and The Other Series

    The Self and The Other Series is a collection of theatre works by Dick Wong. From 2004 onwards till now, his works have been staged in different cities in Asia and Europe, from Bangkok, Tokyo, Taipei to Paris, London and Berlin. They could be summed up as reference and cross reference of questioning the self and the other. To him, dance is more context than form; and theatre is a mirror in which the creator, performer and spectator see himself or herself. Four of his works will be included in this series of The Self and The Other, and they are B.O.B.* The Final Cut (2005), 1+1 (2009), The Rite of Spring (2016), and his latest work, The Rite of Spring – Solo Version (2018), which was just completed earlier this year.

    香港編舞家黃大徽 舞蹈範式的轉移 讓他終於被看見
    《PAR表演藝術》 305 期 / 2018年05月號

    //…二○○四年鄧富權引入《B.O.B.*》為曼谷藝穗節節目,亞洲舞者辭演,歐洲藝術節總監卻看上了它。作品先到巴黎,再到柏林,如是者以每年一至兩次的頻率,在歐洲演了六、七年,過程中作品不斷蛻變,最初的版本已無跡可尋;但是二○○九年回到香港時,觀眾對它冷淡一如二○○二年。

    黃大徽很不忿,「《B.O.B.*》探索觀念、記憶、文化參照等普世性議題,有很多思考點,但香港人不喜歡。是因為沒有舞台化動作、服裝、燈光?」一而再地無法與自己的城市溝通產生的衝擊,令他決定開展一趟以「香港」為起點的遠征。…//

    “If Hong Kong funnyman Stephen Chow were a dancer, he might have been like this compatriot Dick Wong.” The Straits Times

    The Self and The Other Series #1
    B.O.B.* The Final Cut

    Both B.O.B.* The Final Cut, and B.O.B.* The Rough Cut evolved from a piece titled B.O.B.*, commissioned by Hong Kong Arts Festival in 2004. B.O.B.* is a dance piece with no designed costume, no music and no lighting design, but only three dancers, two microphones and a chair, and yet in the past 12 years, it has received a total of 14 international invitations. This may indicate that the soul of a work lies in the concepts and ideas, and a flexible structure could accommodate the additional participation of local dancers from different places, enabling the work for one more level of exchange.

    B.O.B.* is Body Oh Body, and the “*” indicates annotation. The body is a mirror, and you can see both you and me there, as well as our imagination, misunderstandings, and wishful thinking for each other.

    The performance starts with a pose, and develops gradually drawing in language, memories, interpretations, commentary and cultural differences.
