About the Encounter

Meet Dr BEVERLY YUEN, the artistic director of Grain Performance & Research Lab in this sharing session! In this encounter, Beverly will be sharing about her work Mandala, first created in 2003, her journey as a theatre practitioner, and her approach to theatre. A video of Mandala (2003) will be shown during the sharing.

Beverly was one of the core members of Theatre OX (led by Dr Ang Gey Pin), and underwent full-time performer training from 1995 to 1999. In 1998, together with 3 other core members, she headed to the Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards (Italy) and received intensive performer training for a year.

在这个分享会中,“禾谷表演与研究实验室”的艺术总监卢韵微博士将分享她作为戏剧实践者的旅程、创作《曼陀罗》表演的过程以及她的戏剧方法。 《曼陀罗》于 2003 年首次在新加坡电力站呈献,随后到海外演出。

韵微是老牛剧场的核心成员之一(由洪艺冰博士领导),1995年至1999年之间接受全职演员的训练。 1998年,她与老牛剧场另外3名核心成员到耶日.格罗托夫斯基和托马斯·理查兹工作中心(意大利)接受了一年的密集表演者训练。

About Mandala

Mandala portrays the different stages of life a typical urban person goes through as the drawing of a 3-metre-wide rice mandala develops on stage.

The mandala is found in cultures around the world, from the whirling dance of Sufi monks in Dervish monasteries and the Rangoli floor painting in Hindu culture to the stained-glass patterns found in European cathedrals. In Tibetan Buddhism beliefs, the mandala aids concentration and meditation. The late psychoanalyst Carl G Jung believed that the mandala, as an art form, is part of the individuation process. And in this performance, the mandala is a metaphor for daily reflection.
