Synopsis

你是鬼,因為你吃人,所以才變成鬼。

對不起,我錯了。不是鬼吃人,其實是人吃鬼。

是人類吃了鬼。人類為了生存而吃的東西,那就是鬼。

這不是一個鬼故事,發生在海邊村落,卻沒有濕霧重重的樹林、四處出沒的毒蛇蛙蠍,也沒有邪靈奔馳作亂。這不是一個關於紅色鬼魅的故事,這只是一個關於人的故事。

創作向來善於綜合多種劇場元素的導演羅國文,此次特邀台灣飛人集社劇團的團長──偶戲導演石佩玉共同合作重現日本劇作家野田秀樹的作品《赤鬼》,呈現以偶與真人同台演出所創造出的奇幻視覺效果。除此之外,還有人人人鼓劇場及馬來西亞、台灣新進演員參與演出,兩地劇場工作者攜手突顯故事的寓言性,同時也為當前大家關注的國際文化議題──如何擁抱異質?──提供哲理思考

What is that on the shore? Is it asking for food? Is it going to eat us? A stranger arrives on an island. The villagers could not understand his language and wild gestures. He must be a demon! He is befriended by that woman, an outsider living among the villagers. The demon and that woman learned each other’s language. The villagers become afraid and suspicious. Is the demon conspiring with that woman? Are they bringing other demons to invade our island? We must kill the demon!

An internationally-acclaimed play by Japanese playwright Noda Hideki, Red Demon was voted Best Play in Japan two years consecutively in 1998 & 1999, and has been performed in UK, Thailand & Korea. Award-winning director Malaysian Loh Kok Man now brings the play to Kuala Lumpur in this special collaboration between Pentas Project and Taiwanese theatre company The Flying Group Theatre, featuring an exciting interaction between performers, live musicians and puppetry.

For Malaysians, this powerful play will resonate with our anxieties about migrants, foreign forces, and other races in our own home. Red Demon is about the monsters we become to each other.
