布魯克語錄
 (第2話)

Peter Brook

The theatre is about life. What else could it be about?

When I begin to work on a play, I start with a deep, formless hunch which is like a smell, a colour, a shadow. That's the basis of my job, my role-that's my preparation for rehearsals with the play.

I start making a set, destroying it, making it, destroying it, work it out. What kind of costumes? What kind of colours? All those are a language for making that hunch a little more concrete.
 
The rehearsal work should create a climate in which the actors feel free to produce everything they can bring to the play. That's why in the early stages of rehearsal everything is open and I impose nothing at all.
 
In a sense this is diametrically opposed to the technique in which, the first day, the director gives a speech on what the play's about and the way he's going to approach it. I used to do that years ago and I eventually found out that that's a rotten way of starting.

...we start with exercise, with a party, with anything, but not ideas.

"Why don't you do this?" and there'd be gags, there'd be silly things. It didn't matter. All of it was for the purpose of having, out of that, such a lot of material that then, gradually, things could be shaped.

第1話 

戲劇是揭露者,是對抗物,也是矛盾。它引導人們去分析,去認識,最終覺醒。

如果沒有目標,也就沒有方法,沒有訓練,長此以往,專業團體也勢必僵化。

表演是最苛求的藝術,如果沒有持續不斷的訓練,演員就會半途而廢。

如真的去實踐,戲劇是、抑或者可能是一種最難的藝術手段。它是無情的,容不得半點錯誤和浪費。

而觀眾看戲時,則很容易在眨眼之間就從興趣十足變成厭倦不堪,最後肯定跟不上劇情的發展。兩小時是一個短暫而完整的時間,如何利用觀眾的這兩個小時是一種高超的藝術。
