近期,“神秀”《极限震撼》登陆京城。这场表演凭借极富创意的空间设计和震撼的艺术表现,撼动着观众视觉神经!

After picking up my ticket for Fuerza Bruta, I was handed a piece of paper telling me that I would stand for the length of the show, be asked to move freely about the space, and might get wet.
拿到《极限震撼》的票后,工作人员递给我一页纸,上面告诉我将站着看完整场演出,但可以在场地内自由行走,可能会“湿身”。

Fuerza Bruta (Spanish for “brute force”), a postmodern theater show that originated in Argentina, has wowed the world, including Broadway theaters in New York, since its debut in 2005. Now it has finally come to Beijing, China.
《极限震撼》(Fuerza Bruta在西班牙语里是“原力”的意思)是一场源自阿根廷的后现代化歌剧表演。自2005年首演以来,该剧已征服了全世界观众,其中也包括纽约百老汇。如今这场“神秀”终于来到了中国北京。

With a lot of curiosity and a little self-persuasion that I was a theater fan, I entered the venue, where there were no seats, not even a stage — just a large, empty room with flashing lights and a DJ booth. I took my place, with 200 other audience members, in a giant circle that had been drawn on the floor. Suddenly, music started playing and the lights went out.
我试着说服自己“我是个戏迷”,满怀好奇地走进了表演场馆,发现那里既没有座位,甚至连舞台都没有——只有一间配有闪灯和DJ台的空荡荡的大屋子。我和其他200位观众一样,在事先画在地板上的圆形区域内找到一个位置。突然间,音乐响起,灯光熄灭。

What happened in the next 65 minutes is hard to explain. In short, the show combined light installations, electronic music, acrobatics, choreography and aerial artistry.
接下来65分钟里发生的事情难以用言语解释。简而言之,这场表演融合灯光设备、电子音乐、杂技表演、舞蹈艺术以及空中艺术于一体。

The central figure is a mysterious man in white who opens the show by walking on a giant treadmill that is rolled into the middle of the audience. The walk turns into a jog and then a desperate run. A shot rings out, blood spatters the man’s shirt, and he falls to the ground. He lives to walk again, but it’s clear that the man must fight to stay on the treadmill. You could say he represents the indomitable human will that stands in opposition to the destructive influences of our world.
整场秀的主角是位一席白衣的神秘男子,他置身于一台巨型跑步机上,来到观众中央,从而拉开表演序幕。他先是慢走,然后变为慢跑,最后又变为急速狂奔。一声枪响后,血迹沾满了他的衬衣,他应声倒地。然而,他又奇迹般地活了过来,继续前行,可显然他必须拼尽全力才能留在跑步机上。可以说他代表着人类在对抗现实世界的消极影响时,所表现出的坚强意志。

The most impressive scene involves a transparent pool of water that is lowered from the ceiling and comes to rest only a few centimeters above the audience. The cast members then create shapes in and with the water in truly imaginative ways under a dazzling display of lights.
最令人印象深刻的场景是一个透明水池从天而降,停在距离观众头顶几厘米处。在炫目的灯光下,演员们摆出各种图形,献上一场天马行空的水中表演。

The audience is also expected to participate. Toward the end of the show, the pool disappears, the lights go out again and strings of water trickle from the ceiling.
整场演出也希望观众能参与其中。演出接近尾声时,水池消失,灯光再度亮起,一串串水珠从天花板上滴落下来。

The New York Times once described the show as “theater for people who don’t really like theater”, where the audience is not required to think, but to feel the carnival and sensual delight.
《纽约时报》曾把整场表演描述成“为那些厌恶戏剧表演的人而量身打造的一场戏剧”,观赏时观众无需动脑,只需尽情享受这场狂欢以及感官愉悦。

To me, the whole experience was like an escape into a world of chaos, and a celebration of the human spirit against all the odds. So I guess I really am a theater fan, after all.
于我而言,这次经历就像是遁入一个混乱的世界,参与了一场歌颂人类精神战胜万难的庆典。所以,我想自己终究还算是个戏迷吧。
