李維史陀X莎妹的晚宴餐桌
「你那裡的鹽......喔不,是神話遞過來,好嗎?」

李維史陀在《神話學》中提及「世界各地的神話都有驚人的相似性」;導演Baboo從中展延出一場特別的敘事形式—在餐桌上,建構神話所創造的微型世界觀。

觀眾將與來自台灣、韓國、日本、印度、菲律賓的藝術家共同入席,巨大的餐桌即為表演舞台,藝術家們從家鄉帶來的「關鍵神話」依循《一千零一夜》的方式接力上菜,用各種餐具器皿、食材與調味料,即時演出述說的場景與聲響。

故事以原始樣貌出發、傳遞,接著被藝術家相互拆解、梳理甚至佔領,經歷史詩般的旅程後,在終場「最後一夜」以嶄新的樣貌回到起點。

似曾相似卻又前所未見,這場用《神話學》料理神話的演出,歡迎入座享用,用當代的觀點與思考,將神話重新咀嚼消化。

A dinner banquet presented by Lévi-Strauss and Shakespeare’s Wild Sisters Group
“Can you pass the salt…oh, no…the mythology to me, please?”

In his Mythologiques, Claude Lévi-Strauss mentioned that the myths of different cultures are surprisingly similar. From such an idea, Director Baboo develops a special story line to construct a micro world view created by mythologies on a dinner table.

Audiences will join artists from Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, India and the Philippines to take part in the dinner banquet. The huge table is the stage for performance, where the artists present the “key mythology” from their respective cultures and, following the tradition of the Arabian Nights, improvise with all sorts of utensils, cutlery, food and seasoning materials to create necessary scenes and sounds.

Stories begin with their original appearances, pass on, and then will be deconstructed, combed or even occupied by artists. Through the epic-like journey, they will return to the starting point at the “last night” with brand-new faces.

The performance cooked with Mythologiques seems a déjà vu but is in fact unprecedented. You are cordially invited to join the dinner banquet to re- taste and re-digest the mythologies with modern perspectives and thinking.
