大型原创神话舞剧《寸草灵煦》带您徜徉于真善美的世界,一个没有"坏角色"的乌托邦

由新加坡华族舞蹈剧场呈现的大型原创神话舞剧《寸草灵煦》,将于 2018年7月20至21日,晚上8时,在新加坡戏剧中心剧场上演。

故事,是有魔力的,她是孩子幸福童年的摩天轮。这次由新加坡华族舞蹈剧场编创的舞剧《寸草灵煦》,就是专为孩子们编创的神话故事。寸草心,能报三春晖。该舞剧主要是以神话故事的呈现方式,让孩子们明白:天大地大不如父母之恩大,孝顺至诚的心,能感动天神上苍!

75分钟的舞剧《寸草灵煦》,讲述这样一个神话故事:眹子是个十足的孝子,一心一意照顾失明行动不便的父亲,没有半点怨言。因国王打猎时不小心射死眹子,他的双亲悲痛不已的断肠哭声惊动天神,眹子因此得以复活,并且失明的父亲眼睛一亮也恢复光明。国王为眹子的纯孝行为而深受感动, 认眹子为兄弟, 也视眹子的双亲为父母,一同奉养高堂椿萱。

舞剧就是想通过这个神话故事,宣扬华族传统价值观念里的百善之首———孝道尊亲意识,天大地大不如父母之恩大,山高海深不及父母之恩高远。在父母的有生之年,让我们及时行孝!因为树欲静而风不止,子欲养而亲不待啊!为人子女,莫让自己留下无可弥补的遗憾。

本次舞剧演出阵容强大,人数多达70名演员。在舞美方面,我们将采用抽象立体旋转实景配合灯光效果,相信这次表演的视觉效果,将会给观众带来不一样的体验和享受。舞蹈推动剧情的发展,人物塑造、灯光效果、服装的选择、道具的选用和整体效果都上了一个大台阶,使我们晚会的艺术性和欣赏性都比往年有了提高和飞跃。
