During this difficult time of the COVID 19 pandemic, we spend so much time with our family. What can be a better opportunity for us to know and understand each other more?  Puppetry artist Spica Wobbe interviewed her mom and used it as inspiration to create the show Hand in Hand. From these interviews and her childhood memories Spica turned those stories into shadows. The image of a mother holding her daughter’s hand conveys how the previous generation took care of the next generation. Through shadow, light, music and storytelling, it also tells how Spica's mother, a self-taught artist, Ms. Shia Zhaozhi, used her paintings to document her life stories growing up in Taipei, Taiwan. 

 

Beginning Tuesday, September 30, join Spica as she presents her new performance, Hand in Hand! In the weeks following the performance, Spica will lead two workshops in storytelling and shadow theater. Come learn with the artist and create your own story and bring it to life with shadow puppetry! The performance and workshops will be held in English and Mandarin.

 

在COVID-19的疫情下,我們與家人相處的時間變多了,這也是個好機會與家人多聊聊、更深入了解彼此的機會。在《「手牽手」影戲說故事系列》中,木偶演員鄭淑芸與他的母親聊了聊,將母親的回憶和與母親的對話作為靈感,創作了影戲「手牽手」。鄭淑芸以媽媽的大手牽女兒的小手的意象表達上一代如何牽攜下一代。鄭淑芸的母親也是位素人畫家,她的「招治阿嬤的卷軸畫」系列也在「手牽手」裡面現身,呈現招治阿嬤以畫筆記錄下的台北艋舺成長記憶。

 

《「手牽手」影戲說故事系列》將從9月30日(二)開始持續到10月中旬,節目有英語及普通話兩種版本。這本系列中,鄭淑芸將先呈現影劇「手牽手」,並在接下來的兩個星期分別呈現「說故事工作坊」及「影戲工作坊」。一起加入我們,聽聽故事,並與家人一齊動手分享、呈現自己的故事!

 

It is highly encouraged that people attend all three events in the series, however, audiences can select any number of events (and content will still be understandable).

 

歡迎民眾參與本系列所有節目來獲得完整的經驗,或選擇參與部分節目。系列中的每場節目皆為獨立,不受是否參與前面場次影響。
