This year, 黄城夜韵 was held in The Republic Cultural Centre (Theatre) in Republic Polytechnic. It was the 33rd year of the show.

The theme for this year was Bei (悖), a term which characterises the maverick spirit. The 3 plays explore the transgressions of the customary boundaries and how characters respond to the public’s pervasive disdain for their actions. (Taken from 黄城夜韵 FB Event Page)

The first play tells a tale of a campus romance, where a boy falls in love with a girl, and with the help of his friends, chases her. The play portrays such teenage love in a light which exhibits its pureness and naivety, which greatly warmed our hearts and made us audience cringe with thrill at every dramatic development of the story.

The second play was a bold production by the directors, telling a story of romance between a student and teacher. Celebrating the unorthodox, the directors and actors manage to establish the legitimacy of this relationship of true love despite the judgement it suffers from the public eye.

The third play started with the seemingly cold-blooded murder of a child by his own mother. However, what we do not know, is the heart-wrenching backstory of it all, which through the play, was described.

 

The blood, sweat and tears of 117 people

10 weeks of hardwork

It was on those two days that their common dream took flight.

Whether or not this journey came with regrets, we offer you our blessings from the bottom of our hearts!

 

Best wishes to this hardworking and dedicated community of 黄城夜韵, may it live on forever!

We will meet again next year!

 

今年,《黄城夜韵》2014剧组不负众望,在 The Republic Cultural Centre (Theatre)演上了三部精彩的短剧,迈入了创造作品的第33年。

 

《黄城夜韵》2014的主题为《悖》。

“悖”,有混乱、冲突、违背之意。“悖”,是和事实相冲突、违背常理、错误的。
三部体现了不同的人或为了追求个人理想和幸福不按常­理出牌,做出他人难以理解的行为;或不愿被世俗观念束缚,执着于一己之见。

第一部《超人不会飞》,讲述的是一个纯真的校园爱情故事。一个男孩,喜欢上了班上一个女生。其他的,也就不用多说了。

第二部《因为爱情》,是导演们的大胆创作。故事是关于师生之间在老师帮助学生度过难关时产生的感情。剧中的情节让人深刻地感受到追求属于自己而不是他人能理解接受的梦想,的爱情;是多么重要,多么勇敢的。

第三部《孽·罪》,让观众们在最初得知看似冷血的谋杀,慢慢地了解背后的故事,最终理解了这个母亲对自己儿子做出的动作。故事说的是亲情、是生命的残忍、是命运的无奈、也是旁人的冷淡与热心。

 

117个人的汗水,10个星期的努力。

他们一个黄城,做的同一个梦。

我们能说,他们的梦,在过去的两天总算是起飞了。

不论这是否带着遗憾,或者是带着感伤,我们都祝福你们!

 

感谢你们为我们带来了多少次欢笑与悲伤,撰写着我们相聚黄城的这一段忧愁善感励志的青春,希望黄城夜韵能被一届又一届的黄城人永远地传承下去!

 

黄城夜韵,我们明年再见吧!
