Event Information 活动介绍

We are honored to invite Assoc. Prof. Dr. Gao Ziwen of the Department of Theater, Film, and TV Arts of Nanjing University as our first guest speaker for the “Contemporary Theater Art” Seminar Series in the Year 2022. He will deliver a talk on “Play and Performance of Hometown: College Theater Production.”

Hometown is a three-act comedy written by Dr. Gao. The author demonstrates his respect for Lu Xun to mark the 100th anniversary of Lu’s publication of the novelette of the same name. The play tells the social life in rural China while experiencing dramatic changes. It demonstrates snobbish or friendly relationships in the countryside as well. It depicts the mental distress of peasants in the hometown and educated young people who have made their exodus to cities. It presents the tension between people’s “being adaptable” and “being rigid.” The whole thrust of the drama is full of humor and irony. Meanwhile, it makes the audiences reflect on China’s rural economic and social development.

Their department is housed in the Faculty of Literature. It offers one of the most influential and leading undergraduate and graduate programs in drama or theater studies at the C9 League universities in China. They produced the historical comedy President’s Invitation in 2012. The director was Prof. Lü Xiaoping, and the play was authored by Lü’s student Wen Fangyi whom The Journal of Ying Ming Theater (Vol. 7) interviewed. The cast consisted of the students and teachers from Communication University of China (Nanjing) and the MFA students from Nanjing University. This drama has grossed ¥10 million at the box office. It went on tour in North America in 2013. The New York Times (Chinese Edition) published an analytical article on the reasons for the success of this production and the phenomenon of returning to dramatic texts in the current Chinese theater landscape.

This event is co-organized by the Center for Modern East Asian Studies of the University of Göttingen and the Department of Theater, Film, and TV Arts of Nanjing University. Further detailed information concerning the time and the venue can be found on the poster.

“当代剧场艺术”讲座系列很荣幸地邀请到了南京大学戏剧影视文学系的高子文教授。他将为大家带来该系列2022新年第一讲,题目是“《故乡》的编剧与制作:兼谈校园戏剧创作”。

《故乡》是高子文副教授担任编剧创作的三幕喜剧,本剧为纪念鲁迅先生的短篇小说《故乡》发表100周年而做。该剧讲述了山乡巨变时代下中国农村的生活面貌与人情世故,描写了故乡农民和从故乡出走的青年知识分子的精神苦闷。戏剧冲突在人的“改变”与“固守”之间展开,语言幽默诙谐,同时又不失对中国乡土社会重建以及现代农村经济发展的深刻反省。

南京大学文学院下设的戏剧影视文学系提供戏剧专业教育,是“中国九校联盟”中最具影响力和最前沿的本科及研究生项目之一。2012年,南大推出了以校史为题材的喜剧《蒋公的面子》,首演反响强烈,随即开启全国巡演,目前票房已超千万。该剧由时任戏剧影视文学系系主任的吕效平教授担任导演,编剧温方伊是南京大学戏文专业本科三年级学生(哥廷根大学《嘤鸣戏剧》曾对作者进行了采访,见第7期),演员由中国传媒大学南广学院表演专业的师生和南京大学戏剧专业硕士担任。2013年,该剧进入北美,在旧金山、洛杉矶、达拉斯、休斯顿、波士顿、华盛顿、纽约七个城市为华人观众演出10场。《纽约时报》(中文版)曾刊载专题文章,分析了该剧在海内外取得成功的原因,并讨论了当下戏剧创作回归文本的现象。
