假定聚会

这是在柏林系列登堂入室演出“她的脸”唯一的——在一个和主人公无关的公寓厨房发生的表演或者聚会。Natali Seelig,有着华裔家世背景,是一位来自柏林德意志剧院的职业戏剧演员。现在她和她的兄弟姐妹邀大家共赴一个聚会,那个挪用的真实公寓将在2023年的第一个周末被布置成一个假装的香港或假装的巴厘岛的厨房,里面的厨师也是假装的。只有地理上的名字,从大陆板块往东往西,往东南,往西南,往更远的远方的放射状的离散之路是真实的。

在这个流向远方的河流开源处,是香港?是印度尼西亚?那里有童年的记忆,曾祖母,曾祖父,外婆外公。。。奇迹般迁移混合出庞大家族,那一次次的迁移,那一层层的联姻,是一个个微小壮观的生命交响,合奏出现在的很多面孔,他们,我们,我的母亲,她的父亲,兄弟姐妹。。。那些从一个地方到另一个地方到记忆。。。

那些血管中的异响仍然会在午夜梦回中撞击到离开家的人们,喋喋不休地缠绕他们吗?虽然主人公是那个持续了几百年的离散运动中被抛到最远的一粒沙,远到柏林,在舞台灯光的闪烁中,隐身于永远也演不完的戏剧里。但自己的戏剧,自己身体内部和血管里的戏剧才是永恒之戏剧。于是有了这个周末的“假定聚会“,娜塔丽会和所有人一起收集记忆的碎片,询问,思考,发现,谈论家庭,“我们为什么要留在一个地方和一个人在一起?我们为什么要继续前进?”

这个周日中午的聚会中,娜塔丽的兄弟姐妹也会和她一起追溯父母和家庭传说,可能交错,可能各说各话。外婆的手艺、热带、少数民族、基督教福音行动、医疗援助、广东菜、街坊街铺。。。还有味觉的记忆会不会被唤醒?

有意思的是娜塔丽抽到的盲盒是来自翻译、汉学家苏姗戈瑟的五号文本,以及三号文本保罗策兰的“无人玫瑰”,这朵玫瑰已经在不同的公寓里再三的复现,从来自基辅的萨莎,到绿色可持续话题,再到此刻的离散记忆。。。它一再点中激活我们想象中的流亡之路。似乎提示:唯离散,才可诗!

A Get-together 

This episode of “Her Face” series takes place in a private kitchen. Natali Seelig, with Chinese heritage, who works professionally as an actor in the ensemble of Deutsches Theater Berlin, is invited with her siblings for a get-together, that takes place in a kitchen on the first Sunday of 2023. The kitchen will play a kitchen, decorated after the host's fantasy of Hong Kong or Bali. A capable cook is invited to play a cook. The transitions and paths that connect the biographical locations will, however, become temporarily visible - the paths that stretch on this continent from different directions and paths of diasporic movements. 

Where stands the source? Hong Kong? Indonesia? Up towards the source, we encounter childhood memories, where the great grandparents and grandparents were active… the genesis of a migrational myth, a family clan, moving and building, noticing the conceptual paradigm of languages and nations. All these symphonic movements give shape to many faces, of them, of us, of my mother, of her father, of someone’s siblings …they give shape to the memories moving from one place to another. 

 

It is a common experience for everyone who has left home, to hear noises of memories echoing in the middle of the night, inside the blood vessels deeper than one’s ears, between consciousness and sleep, as if the voices would not stop. Perhaps it reminds of a grain of sand in a moving dune, a dune that has been moving for centuries. The poetry in the historical reality of an invisible diasporic movement. A person is then placed in a far-away land, in a city or another town, remembered and called as Berlin or another name. The programmed lights on the theater stage shine on the numerous characters of an inexhaustible repertoire. One becomes anonymous. The drama stored in oneself fuels the eternal dramaturgy. A Sunday brunch is planned, where everyone joins in collecting fragments of memories, asking questions, thinking and searching, discussing about our families. ‘Why do we stay in a place? Why do we stay with someone? Why do we move on?’

At the Sunday brunch, the Seelig siblings will be simply present, quietly diving into the family myths and the stories. The memories might converse, or para-verse, multi-verse. Grandma’s cooking. The tropical. Ethical minority. Christian mission and medical aid. Cantonese food. Neighbourhood backstreets… will gustatory memories wake up?

What is also interesting is that Natali drew from the Opaque Text Box of “Her Face” Text Nr. 5 from the then translator and sinologue Susanne Göße as well as Text Nr. 3 Paul Celan’s Niemandsrose, a rose that repeatedly blooms in different private apartments, with Sasha of Kiev (Ep.2), with the sustainability advocate (Ep.3), and now with diasporic memories… the rose that again shine on an imagined road of exile. That Niemand whispers: only in the fugitive diaspora can poētēs(ποιητής) be.
