病號 The Unnamed

2018.4 首演於台北水源劇場

「《病號》描述的是當代幾乎每一個人的狀態,我們陷溺其中難以自拔。這是一面無可迴避的鏡子,你必須走進劇場,讓這齣戲映照出你我的困頓、尷尬或無助,並從而思索掙脫困境的出口。」─文化評論人  郭力昕

以一名自殺未遂者為核心,輻射出九名相互形成關係網絡的角色,這些角色皆沒有名字,僅以關係中的稱謂作為辨識,藉而呼應網路匿名文化下「無名」的特性。劇名來自日本網路文化中,對於以化名發洩負面情緒的使用者帳號之統稱。《病號》透過階段性集體創作並融合大量肢體編排,大筆描摹網路社群時代、重度網路成癮的日常生活下人們扭曲的面貌,展現「人」與網路不可剝離的集體病徵。

“The Unnamed depicts a state of almost every one of us in the modern time. A state that is like a vortex which we are all drowning inside and hard to escape from. This is a mirror that we must look in to, and it is necessary to let this theater piece to reflect our defeats, embarrassments, and helplessness to contemplate a way out of the troubled state.” – Guo Lixin, Cultural Commentator 

Related to a suicide attempter, 9 characters are weaved into one social web. Their names are unknown to audiences, and they are only addressed by their titles which indicate their interpersonal relationship. The Unnamed features the online anonymity phenomenon with a focus on excessive Internet use, and from which stems a collage of alienated individuals who struggle to grasp interpersonal relationships outside of cyberspace. The Chinese title, literally meaning sick account, comes from the Japanese Internet culture. It indicates the netizens who use pseudonyms especially for emotional ventilation. Developed through collaboration of actors with a physical movement base, the Unnamed highly resonates netspeak in its amusing dialogs and the offbeat social interactions in its choreography.
