劇場如何述真 —以米洛.勞《重述:街角的兇殺案》為例

Article by 應修平(Grace S. P. YING) 摘要 《重述:街角的兇殺案》為瑞士劇場導演米洛.勞(Milo Rau)所發表之根特宣言(The Gent Manifesto)的第一齣作品,2018年首演於亞維儂藝術節,作品內容改編自2012年發生於比利時列日(Liège)小城的一起兇殺案,被害人為一位穆斯林男同志—薩能.賈非(Ihsane Jarfi)。在此作品中,導演米洛.勞透過一群演員進入到劇場裡徵選作為開端,開啟五個段落幕之重述,其中視角包含被害者母親、同志酒吧的場景、車上的暴行以及死亡等等。舞台上角色虛實之間的轉換,使觀者時而抽離、時而與演員共感,前後段落相互呼應之戲劇手法,更是迫使觀者重新思考在一起兇殺案中自身的位置以及處境。本文期望透過劇場作品《重述:街角的兇殺案》,結合傅柯對於說真話(Parrhēsia)之分析,探討劇場作品如何結合根特宣言之理念,讓劇場成為一說真話的主體,並進而重新反思劇場與社會之關係。 Keywords: Milo Raw, The Gent Manifesto, Parrhēsia, Theatre, LA REPRISE – Histoire(s) du théâtre (I) Header image”LA REPRISE – Histoire(s) du théâtre (I).” by Tampereen Teatterikesä under CC BY-NC-ND. 根特宣言(The Ghent Manifesto)與《重述:街角的兇殺案》 「戲劇能為現實做什麼?」是出生於1977年的瑞士導演米洛.勞在自身創作歷程中不斷在探索的問題,師承社會學者布迪厄(Pierre Bourdieu)和文學理論大師托多洛夫(Tzvetan Todorov),米洛.勞認為創作與研究如初一徹,都具備了「搏擊運動」的精神—藉由創作與研究和社會對話及對抗。(王世偉,2019)基於對於創作的這一層認知,米洛.勞於2007年成立「國際政治謀殺學院」(International Institute of Political …
