2020・01・11 & 12-《艾布爾的夜宴》”The Banquet at elBulli”

 

 

「他們依言赴約來了,要告訴我們什麼呢?」

在傳奇分子料理餐廳艾布爾,祭司般的廚師改變食物的型貌、抽取它們的特質重新編織。這個夜晚,作家與老友們,還有年輕詩人和舞蹈家一同赴宴朝聖,細啖生命中各種滋味,是惋惜是哀傷,是驚詫是慈悲……

〈艾布爾的夜宴〉是已故香港作家也斯收錄在《後殖民食物與愛情》中的短篇小說;整場夜宴如同一場劇場演出,而作者亦藉此探索藝術的本質及其通靈性、其通靈性及可塑性。本地室樂合唱團香港和聲,在指揮蔣頌恩的帶領下,偕同劇場人李君衎及作曲家盧定彰,回歸表演藝術的祭祀形式,讓音樂、文學和劇場直接對話,以半舞台式清唱劇重構這一場「盛宴」。 

“They attended the banquet as promised—had they got something to tell us?”

At the legendary restaurant elBulli, food and ingredients were transformed by its high priest of molecular gastronomy, their essences extracted then weaved anew. A writer and his old friends embarked on a gastronomic pilgrimage and arrived at elBulli one night; along with a young poet and a dancer, they savoured the various tastes of life, nostalgic or melancholic, astounding or forgiving…

The Banquet at elBulli from Postcolonial Affairs of Food and the Heart is a short story by the late Hong Kong writer Ping-Kwan Leung. Presenting the banquet as if it were a theatrical performance, the story explores the nature of art and its innate spirituality. Led by conductor Grace Chiang, local chamber choir Hong Kong Voices collaborates with theatre practitioner Clement Lee and composer Daniel Lo and presents to you this reconstructed “banquet” in the form of a semi-staged cantata, returning to the ritual origin of performing arts and initiating a dialogue between music, literature and theatre.
