詳細介紹Intro

莎士比亞的妹妹們的劇團 (Shakespeare’s Wild Sisters Group) 成立於1995年夏天,團名源於英國女作家維吉尼亞‧吳爾芙(Virginia Woolf)在《自己的房間》(A Room of One’s Own)一書中所虛擬的角色,意在解除女性才華被男性體制壓抑的魔咒。

劇團以原創劇本及前衛劇場美學為發展目標,創作題材、形式、議題不限。近年多次參加國際文化交流與國內藝術節相關活動,展演作品美學新穎,劇團經營穩定成長。

自1997年來,劇團每年持續受邀於不同國家、城市,展演新作,在國際城市文化或藝術交流上扮演重要角色。曾參加上海第二屆國際小劇場戲劇節(Shanghai 2001 The 2nd International Experimental Theatre Festival)、1998/1999/2000香港中國旅程藝術節 (Journey to the East 98;Journey to the East 99;Journey 2000)、1998/1999/2001小亞細亞戲劇網絡 (98/99/2001 Little Asia Theatre Exchange Network)、香港柏林當代文化節 (Festival of Vision. Hong Kong - Berlin─A Creative Venture Between Asia and Europe) 、香港第二屆女兒戲藝術節(The 2nd Girl Play Festival) 2003華人小劇場演出季、Physical Theater 2003,赴香港、澳門、北京、上海、釜山、東京、柏林、新加坡、神戶及巴黎等地演出多次。

劇團成立至今已發表過四十多部作品,其中由王嘉明編導的《Zodiac》獲選第一屆台新藝術獎年度十大表演藝術,2007年作品《殘, 。》更獲第六屆台新藝術獎年度十大表演藝術及評審團特別獎,2008年更以《請聽我說─豪華加長版》及《給普拉斯》雙雙入圍第七屆台新藝術獎年度十大。多年來成員(導演、演員和設計群)已有良好合作默契,許多合作過的成員也在劇場各自的領域發展與成長,劇團始終群策摸索獨創的劇場美學與風格,除了每年劇場探索和實驗的新作發表與國內外藝術文化的交流外,也將持續創作平台的經營、戲劇教育的推廣與文化政策的參與。

Founded in the summer of 1995, Shakespeare's Wild Sisters Group owes its name to the fictional character in Virginia Woolf’s novel A Room of One’s Own, meaning to liberate women’s talents from the oppression of patriarchy. Limiting itself to no specific issues or conventional aesthetics, SWSG takes materials from all arts inspiring to create original theatrical works, which have been brought to participate in many theater festivals in Taiwan as well as overseas for years.

With vigorous productivity, every year SWSG stages two or more new productions since its genesis. To name some, in 1997 SWSG was invited to stage A Room of One’s Own in Hong Kong Art Center, followed by another well-received new production 666─Limbo, staged in August in Tiny Alice Theater, Tokyo. As the artistic reputation of Director Wei and of the other performers was gradually recognized, invitations from theater festivals in Taiwan and overseas have begun to multiply yearly since. In addition to the study of movements, these years Wei incorporated modern literature interpreted into her works as inspirational resources, especially from the legacy by female artists and writers. In 2003, our new production Emily Dickinson just toured from [Girl Play Festival](Hong Kong); Six Memos for the Next Millennium─Movements will head for Kobe (Japan) and Beijing (China) in Dec 2003 and Paris in May 2004. 

Besides staging theatrical productions in domestic and international festivals, Shakespeare’s Wild Sisters Group is planning to make its further step toward making tour performances around the country, developing educational theater activities and engaging itself actively in matters of national cultural politics at stake.
