约克大学戏剧系学生上演黑色幽默剧“A Party for Boris” 探讨残障和包容主题

来源:贴心姐妹网   更新:2016-11-07 22:18:05   作者:贴心姐妹网

York University’s Department of Theatre has announced Extraordinary Lives: Difference and Ability as its theme for the year. Theatre @ York launches its season with a compelling new production of Austrian playwright Thomas Bernhard’s dark comedy A Party for Boris, which previews November 13 and 14, opening November 15. 

Veteran theatre-maker and York MFA candidate Matthew Earnest makes his Canadian directorial debut with the show, which runs through November 19 in the Sandra Faire and Ivan Fecan Theatre at York University’s Keele campus. The production is designed and performed by undergraduate theatre students. 

A Party for Boris uses the metaphor of disability to pose questions about human relationships in a violent world. Earnest reflected that, “Bernhard was chronically ill from childhood, which naturally informed his view of human fragility. But he also grew up in Austria, in the heart of a brutal war [WWII]. Inevitably, that also shaped his intellectual and political development, and his thinking about human nature.” 

Earnest has mounted award-winning productions in Europe and across the US, including a New York Times Critics’ Pick that ran off-Broadway for nine months. 

With Extraordinary Lives: Difference and Ability, York’s Theatre Department is devoting the current academic year to exploring questions around dis/ability and performance. The department’s thinking around this theme is guided by an advisory panel of prominent Deaf, Mad, and “crip” artists who are serving as facilitators for the season: 

·        Sage Willow, multidisciplinary queer non-binary deaf artist and educator; 

·        Eliza Chandler, artistic director of the nonprofit arts organization Tangled Art + Disability and assistant professor in the School of Disability Studies at Ryerson University;

·        Syrus Ware, a member of the Performance Disability Art Collective, co-programmer of Crip Your World (Mayworks 2014), coordinator of the Art Gallery of Ontario’s Youth Program and a facilitator/designer at The Banff Centre; and

·        Sarah Garton Stanley, co-creator of SpiderWebShow and associate artistic director (English Theatre) at Canada’s National Arts Centre.

“We’re working to challenge traditionally “abelist” modes of making theatre”, said Ines Buchli, Chair of the Department of Theatre. “Our goal is to be more inclusive and accessible to students and audiences with variable physical and sensory abilities.” 

Scenic designer Yasaman Nouri describes the world she’s created for the play as “a conversation starter for how we experience our bodies, and how difference in ability affects and shapes that individual experience.” 

Costume designer Jamin Daniel said, “I felt it was important to express how important Boris's party is in the lives of the guests. I wanted to explore and celebrate what it means to have a body.” 

A Party for Boris and future Theatre @ York shows will include a Relaxed Performance and an ASL interpreted performance.
