トーク!

あと、アップしたつもりでアップしてなかった写真をもう一枚。プレ・パフォーマンス・トークは、ホント、渡航日寸前に割りと急に依頼されて、初日開演1時間前に、自分たち及び自分たちの作品の紹介を兼ねて実施しました。インタビュアーは、国立劇場のドラマトゥルクのHege Randi Tørressenさん。

ゲネプロが押しに押したのでもう、通訳さんともインタビュアーともぜんぜん打ち合わせ出来なかったところになんだこれ!ってシチュエーションで、何が何だか、いっぱいいっぱいで。

だって、このシチュエーションは、さすがにちょっと緊張するじゃないですか。ホントにもう...てもまあ、スケジューリングをミスった自分が悪いんだけど。

ちなみにオープニングパティも同じこの部屋で催されて、件のイプセンおじさんをかたどったブックエンドと黄色い薔薇は、ここの壇上で戴きました。

二日目の終演後には、舞台上でポスト・パフォーマンス・トークも行ったのですが、その際に、最初に矢野が5分程度スピーチしてくれ。といわれていたそのスピーチ原稿を、折角なので転記しておきます。まったくもってプアーなイングリッシュで恐縮ですが、そこんところはどうか、なにとぞご容赦下さいませ。
 

Hi I'm Yasuhito YANO, the director of "GHOSTS."

Thank you all so much for for coming to see our show.

It's a great honor for me, and us, to be here, invited by the Norwegian national theater, and meet you audiences all.

I'd like to talk just a little, before this post-show talk, about us theater company “shelf,” and our relationship with Ibsen.

We have produced 4 Ibsen’s plays so far—4 plays indeed—in these ten years.

Those are “A Doll’s House,” “Little Eyolf,” “When We Dead Awaken”—which was the last work of Ibsen, and “GHOSTS—Composition/Ibsen.”

Ibsen was a great poet as you all know.

I think he was the very first playwright who described what human beings are, what “oneself” is, and humans’ ego in this modern era, in which we are still living now.

And, not only was he the first one, but also he might be the last one who could foresee what human beings would be like in this century. He foresaw that we human beings would keep clinging to old, traditional ideas even in the 21st century.

In fact, I think that we are living in the time when the concept of “humans’ modern ego” is falling apart, or, in other words, we are living in the time when various concepts, which have supported “humans’ modern ego,” are starting to collapse.


The most important and interesting point of Ibsen’s works for me is that, they described what human beings are earlier than any other works, and they also described the limits that humans’ modern ego has.

For example, Nora in “A Doll’s House” was the first woman who wanted to be treated as herself. Not as a daughter, not as a wife, not as a mother, and maybe not even as a woman.

But, as you guys know, it’s actually impossible for us to exist just as “a human”. We, humans are living in the very complicated network of “relationships.”

There are a lot of people like Nora even in this century, who just want to be themselves, but cannot be themselves. And as a result, they sometimes get mental disorders or commit suicide.

So, we need to find a way to survive in this environment, that rankles our minds.

And when I think of the way, to me, Ibsen’s works seem to be able to give us hints to find it.

This is why I said earlier that his works described not only “humans’ modern ego,” but also its limits.

Obviously, I love performing art. But our ultimate purpose of making theater plays is not to contribute to the art world. It is, actually, to think about oneself with audiences, have communications through shows, analyze human beings, our society, and our government that we created, and make the world better than it is now.

I think, Ibsen and his works help us do it. Thank you!
