The Awaking

2'46"

实验戏剧+行为艺术作品:《醒》,由自由艺术家李小燕编剧、导演,带领安徽11所艺术院校选派的16名学生代表(非表演专业学生)参加,并于2017年4月22日10:00在“中国安徽高校实验艺术学术邀请展”开幕式上呈现此作品,地点位于中国安徽工商职业学院艺术设计学院致知楼前露天广场。

作品时长15分钟,视频剪辑至2分46秒。作品分三幕,分别是“洞穴里的影子”(绳索束缚)、“自由使者”(现场即兴绘画)、“重生之光”(蒙眼朗诵诗歌)。

作品内涵:作品灵感来源自《理想国》第七卷苏格拉底提出的“洞穴寓言”。唤醒某种沉闷、稳定的原有状态,需要由内而外的强烈力量,这力量或是潜行慢入,或是催人惊醒,无论何种变化,不可避免的遭遇重重困难。以往的、安全的、传统的习惯性延续将被打破,在令人疑惑的、漫长的、封闭的梦里,梦里的人自发、自觉、自醒,挣脱绳索的束缚,在外界的不断涌动与嘈杂声响中,在另一个可能的引导下,人们听从与生俱来的觉醒之力量,突破层层心之束缚,惊觉从未体验的领悟和真实。在自由、宽广的时空里,人们尽情挥洒心灵的色彩,灵魂的双目从未如此清晰,透过黑暗与模糊的屏障,在梦的背面,他们即将听到万物迁徙的圣音。

<The Awaking> is an experimental art and action art production. It is designed by the freelance artist Li Xiaoyan, and presented by 16 non-professional performance students, come from 11 different colleges in Anhui province. <The Awaking> performed in the opening ceremony of Anhui Academic Experimental Art Invitation Exhibition on April 22th, 2017. The artwork lasts 15 minutes (shorten to 2 minutes 46 seconds for video clip), and contains three chapters: <Shadow in the Cave> (rope bound), <Messenger of Freedom> (improvisational painting), <Lights of Reborn> (poem reading). The idea of creating this artwork comes from the 7th vol. of the Republic, where the allegory of the cave comes from. When awaking the primary spiritual status, an intense force from the inside out is necessary. No matter what kind of change will happen in the process of the awaking, it is sure that inevitable difficulties will be encountered. By breaking the safe and comfort dreaming status, people fight for unleashing the constraints, and following the guide of the inner voice. When arriving the realistic world, people can set their souls free, and embrace their real identity through the darkness barriers between the fantastic realm and the real world.
