And Then Came Spring
presented by Parastoo & Instant Cafe Theatre

Growing up in Kabul 14-year Nazanin always dreamt of going to school. But her father Ghulam, a lay-about addicted to gambling and heroine, sent her to work in a carpet shop instead while her younger sister, the spirited 8-year-old Laily, scavenges the streets and hustles for a living. The girls dream of the day when everything would be different. Instead, their father sells Nazanin to Sarwar Khan to settle his debts and Nazanin finds herself married to a man twice her age. She soon finds herself pregnant but when her husband finds out the child is a girl he is infuriated, and his decision sets off a chain of events that changes everyone’s lives forever.

Ambaa...The Penance by KRITHIKA & SHABIN Venue: Theatre, DPAC
Date / Time:

Ambaa...The Penance
presented by Krithika Ramachandran and Shabin Bright

Ambaa... The Penance is based on the concept of non duality. It portrays how Parvati unites with the lord by over coming her mortal self. According to the Advaita Philosophy of Sri Adishankara, the ultimate truth, Brahman, is non- dual. It is the divine ground which is beyond time, space and causation. By discriminating between what is Brahman and what is not, one comes to realise the truth, that Brahman is all, is infinite ( sat chit ananda/ pure consciousness ), ultimately attaining Moksha. This production focuses on Parvati’s life story, her journey to attain lord shiva and the mystic androgyny of Ardhanariswaram, the symbol of cosmic balance.

The Other Story of Ah-Q 《阿Q外傳》
presented by Pentas Project Theatre Production

In collaboration with THE JAPAN FOUNDATION ASIA CENTER,  and DPAC, Supported by PURPLE CANE, THE DRAMATIC ART SOCIETY.


讀劇,是舞台劇傳統的準備功夫,

讀劇,亦是不完整與想像勾結的演出。

在舞台戲服佈景都不完整的假想中造反,

8 個演員,搬演 24 個無需粉墨依然登場的角色。

《阿Q外傳》日本劇作家宮本研 Ken Miyamoto 的作品,靈感來自魯迅經典短篇小說集《吶喊》,並以《阿Q正傳》為主軸。

一切都從阿Q開始,也從阿Q結束。

失敗的英雄革命的賊,救人的醫學殺人的刀,

挑起阿Q的自嘲和卑微,剖開孔乙己的封建迂腐,

刺破自以為革命家的熱血與淡漠,剁碎螻蟻百姓的末善末惡,

人生或可憎或可笑或可憐或可嘆,從來都是出自那一片不曾絕望的期盼。


Staged reading - a traditional preparation for the stage.

Staged reading - also a show where incompleteness meets imagination.

Challenging incomplete stage/costumes/set, imaginatively,

8 actors perform 24 roles - barefaced for the audience.

The Japanese playwright, Ken Miyamoto’s work, “The Other Story of Ah-Q” is inspired by Lu Xun’s classical short story collection, “Call to Arms” and is based on “The Story of Ah-Q”.
It all starts with Ah-Q, and it all ends with Ah-Q. A failed hero - a revolutionary thief, life-saving medicine - a killing knife, triggering Ah-Q’s self-mockery and inferiority, dissecting Kong Yiji’s feudal decay, bursting the self-proclaimed revolutionary’s passion or apathy, mincing the commoner’s good and evil, life’s loathings, ridicules, pities, laments, which have always come from a never despairing expectation.

劇情簡介 Synopsis :

成長於二戰時期並在北京度過少年歲月的宮本研,透過對魯迅思想的解構和再架構,在60年代末以他擅長描述革命與群眾關係的創作風格,寫下《阿Q外傳》一劇。他將魯迅筆下許多經典人物,如:阿Q(一個卑微的愚人,也是自暴自棄自我安慰精神勝利法的符號),放上舞台與魯迅和其所在的動盪時空,交織在一起對話。透過劇中不同階層的角色,探究社會改革進程中各種的矛盾、憤怒與悲哀。對民眾來說,革命到底是什麼對革命而言,民眾到底是什麼︖”一定要失敗才是英雄救人的醫學是否會借用殺人的刀

Ken Miyamoto - born during World War II and having spent his youth in Beijing - deconstructed and reconstructed Lu Xun’s beliefs to write “The Other Story of Ah Q” in the late sixties using his expert style of depicting revolutions and social relationships. He gathered many of Lu Xun’s classic characters to dialogue on stage, sharing the space with Lu Xun and the tumultuous times they belonged to. Through these characters of different statuses, the story examined what a social revolution could bring: the dilemmas, the rage, the grief. “To the people, what exactly is a revolution? To the revolution, what exactly are the people?” Must one fail to become a hero? Can medicine save, and yet borrow a knife to kill?
