昨天，家仁他们一堆人突然换了看戏剧的日期， 睡眼惺忪的就跑到 UCC 那儿去看戏了。 有人帮忙拿票真好，最近还蛮有贵人福，呵呵，每次看戏都有人帮忙拿票。 进去看了场戏，有很多想说的，只好趁现在还有温度的时候说吧。
Yesterday, Ken Juin they all changed the date suddenly for watching Chinese Drama, causing me to rush to UCC with a pair of sleepy eyes. It’s very nice when someone took the ticket for you. I guess my luck these few days were quite good, hee, because every time watch drama also got people get the ticket for me, waha! After the show, there were comments and I wish to write them down before I forget any bits of them.
This year, the Chinese Drama is concentrating more on the lightings, acting and the scripts. The lightings, as I said, was not bad except some careless mistakes that caused a bit of awkward on the stage. For example, when they want to show us the ‘same time two places’ fact, the lights were a bit off. Like when there were 2 bedrooms, but they want to show some difference in terms of the action, it’s better for the lighting to be same since, the acts from the actor and actresses will show the difference more. Generally, the lightings were acceptable and I would like to give kudos for the idea of projector. The use of the partial screen in front has enable the feeling of blur-ness in the act, with the repeated image, on top of each other, not bad!
Acting wise, the actors and actresses had successfully brought out their character, the backgrounds and settings very nicely. Since they were using microphone, there will be little worries about their voice projection except some of them has really ‘special’ voice that sometimes made the conversation a bit not-acceptable. Generally, their acting are quite good. But the script and the presentation do have a bit of chaos here and there. Like sometimes, the place where the actor or actress stood, was actually not the best position to catch the attention. And when they wish to present the feeling of confusion, due to the script, and the position of different actor and actress,causing confusion to the audience, instead of bringing the confusion clearly. I guess, they still can improve at this.
There is some parts in the play that is quite artistic, like presenting the inner of a human heart. Ten years, you and I, are we going to be the same again? Time, can change a long of things, they can change personality, they can blur your memory. But, in the story, after ten years, the one we saw, are they themselves? Or are they the person who survived the society of reality with their own mask? There were precious message in the drama, but also some negative sides. Maybe they used love, emotion as their main point of drama, but I preferred to look at the brighter side. In drama, it is highlighted the message of love what you have now (it’s weird to translate that to English, help!). What is here now, after ten years, will only left what we called as memory. Without memory, is our life meaningful? Just like the acts, they found back their memory, but what can they do? The two of them, had passed through time, changed. If they wanted to go back in time, it’s very difficult, unless they find back themselves that lived ten years ago. In the end, we knew they can’t. Instead of strolling in this painful memory lane, why not let it be and continue their life? Memory, they will be the light in your life, accompany you as you write another chapter of your life…
