0044 - 古典戲曲概論 Introduction to Chinese Classical


教育目標 Course Target

乍聽「戲曲」一詞,一般人腦海裡出現的畫面與聲音,大概就是畫著濃妝的大花臉與鏗鏘嘈雜的中國樂伴奏。然而如果你以為戲曲就是一門古老的、不符合時代潮流的艱難學問,這其實只說對了很小一部分。首先,古典戲曲的歷史的確相當悠遠,是「從古代走來」的一門藝術,與古希臘悲劇、印度梵劇並列世界最古老的戲劇形式之一。其次,直至今天,戲曲仍舊頻繁地在華人世界的各式劇場中持續搬演著。我們不但可以看到維持著古典精神的戲曲演出,也可以看到當代創作者在表現形式與戲劇主題上不斷地推陳出新,為這個時代的觀眾們創造可以對話時代的劇本與表演。因此某種意義上而言,我們也正持續「書寫」著屬於這個時代的戲曲時。「書寫」在這裡作為一個擁有寬泛定義的動詞,既指劇本創作,也包括劇場演出,甚至所有相關的戲劇活動、觀賞行為,甚至是批評與討論。 古典戲曲的最大特色在於詩歌舞結合,並以抒情為本位;敷演情節之外,更重視情感的抒發並藉以引起觀眾共鳴。此外,戲曲特有的行當制(如:生旦淨末丑)、寫意性的表現手法(如:一桌二椅)以及結合各類表演藝術(唱曲、雜耍、科諢等)的豐富型態,都是其動人的特色與內涵。也因為劇本的創作是以場上演出為最終期待,因此當我們閱讀戲曲劇本時, 可以試著想像它在劇場上呈現的方式,將文字轉化成流動的畫面;這不僅是戲曲有異於其他文學形式的主要特質之一,也將是閱讀戲劇劇本最饒富興味的一環。 戲劇作為一種跨領域的綜合性表演藝術,其價值同時體現在案頭文本以及表演劇場之上,並兼具抒情與敘事的文學功能;這是戲曲與其他文學形式如詩、詞、散文、小說等最大的差異之一,也會是這一門課與其他中文課程內容有所區別之處。因此我們所涉獵與討論的「文本」,將同時包括「戲曲劇本」與「劇場演出」。再則,戲曲擁有著高度的娛樂性與通俗性,因此當我們在閱讀或觀賞戲曲時,更能關照到不同時代、跨越階層的群眾們真實而豐富的情感思想與審美標準。 究竟戲曲的特色與魅力何在?它在整個中國文學歷史裡扮演著什麼樣的角色?這不會是課堂上教師要努力說服大家的部分,而是是希望在一個學期的學習之後,每一位修課同學學生可以透過每一個單元循序漸進的引導與各種不拘形式的討論分享,最終延伸出自己關於這個提問的答覆。更進一步的,希望同學們除了知性的理解與思考之外,也能因為蘊含於戲曲文本中的多樣主題豐富自身的精神與情感內涵,並充分「享受」閱讀、觀賞這門藝術無可取代的愉悅過程。Listening to the word “traditional opera”, the images and sounds that appear in the minds of the general public are probably painted with heavy makeup and noisy Chinese musical accompaniment. However, if you think that opera is an ancient and difficult learning that does not conform to the trend of the times, it is only a small part of it. First of all, the history of classical operas is indeed a long one. It is an art that “comes from ancient times” and is one of the oldest theatrical forms in the world along with ancient Greek tragedies and Indian Sanskrit. Secondly, until today, opera is still frequently performed in various theaters in the Chinese world. Not only can we see opera performances that maintain the classical spirit, but we can also see contemporary creators constantly innovating in the forms of expression and theatrical themes to create plays and performances for the audience in this era that can be used in the dialogue age. Therefore, in a sense, we are also continuing to "write" operas belonging to this era. "Writing" is here as a verb with a broad definition, which refers to both script writing, theater performance, and even all related drama activities, viewing behavior, and even criticism and discussion. The greatest feature of the classical opera is the combination of poetry and dance, and the lyrical orientation. In addition to the plot, the emphasis is on the bursting of emotions and the resonance of the audience. In addition, the unique style of opera (such as: the end of life, the end of life, ugliness), freehand performance techniques (such as: a table and two chairs) and the combination of various types of performing arts (singing, juggling, science, etc.) rich patterns , are their moving features and connotations. It is also because the creation of the script is the ultimate expectation of the performance on the field. When we read the drama script, we can try to imagine the way it is presented in the theater and turn the text into a moving image; this is not only different from other operas. One of the main characteristics of literary form will also be the most interesting aspect of reading drama scripts. As a cross-cutting comprehensive performance art, drama has its value at the same time reflected in the desk text and performance theater, and has the literary function of lyrical and narrative; this is drama and other literary forms such as poetry, words, prose, novels, etc. One of the biggest differences will also be the difference between this course and the content of other Chinese courses. Therefore, the "text" that we are concerned with hunting and discussing will also include "drama scripts" and "theatrical performances." In addition, the opera has a high degree of entertainment and popularity, so when we read or watch the opera, we can better pay attention to the true and rich emotional thoughts and aesthetic standards of the masses across different ages and strata. What exactly is the characteristics and charm of traditional opera? What kind of role does it play in the history of Chinese literature as a whole? This will not be a part of the teacher's efforts to persuade everyone in the class, but it is hoped that after a semester of study, each student in the class can gradually share and discuss with various informal discussions through each unit. Give your own answer to this question. Further, I hope that the students can enrich their spiritual and emotional connotations by the various themes contained in the operatic texts in addition to the intellectual understanding and thinking, and fully “enjoy” reading and viewing. This art cannot be replaced. Pleasant process.
