關於 大稻埕國際藝術節

關於  大稻埕國際藝術節  緣起.....

 

歡迎來到大稻埕國際藝術節。

 

這裡是連結1920年代與2020年代的時空劇場。

 

大稻埕的精神就是1920年代精神。

 

臺灣與世界邁入現代的1920年代,是一個充滿熱情理想的年代。

全世界的知識青年蜂起,爭取自由平等獨立。

 

彼時的大稻埕,日治時期的台灣人市街,是台灣的商業與貿易重鎮,也是現代台灣意識的起源地,台灣文化運動的搖籃基地。

 

1921年10月17日,蔣渭水等先賢在大稻埕創立臺灣文化協會,指出台灣人的天命即是促進人類文明。從此新文化運動蔓延全台灣。

 

代表著現代台灣意識的各類藝文創作蓬勃盛行。

文學、美術、戲劇、音樂,匯聚於此。以戲劇領域而論,各式藝人聚集在昔日的新舞臺、永樂座、第一劇場,新劇、文明戲、京戲、歌仔戲、布袋戲不間歇地在此上演,讓大稻埕有百戲匯聚的「戲窟」之稱。反映出大稻埕確為現代台灣藝術文化總匯之地。

 

「大稻埕國際藝術節」由思劇場、Bookstore 1920s、蔣渭水文化基金會發起,結合多個深耕大稻埕的在地文化單位,每年整個10月舉辦近百場的藝文展演活動。

 

大稻埕國際藝術節著重在跨時代、跨領域、跨國籍、跨文化甚至跨語言的藝術表演,結合創新實驗表演形式連結在地文化歷史,並使用大稻埕歷史街區建築為演出場地,發展在地創作作品。

 

每年10月17日當週週末的「1920變裝遊行」為「大稻埕國際藝術節」的重頭戲之一,邀請大家一起打扮成喜愛的1920年代人物,走過當年繁榮的大街小巷,聽聽那些被遺忘的動人故事。遊行中穿插許多精彩表演,彷彿穿越百年,回到1920年,世界的大稻埕!

 

1920年代精神

 

「狂騷的20年代」,這是日文漢字對英文「Roaring 20s」的譯寫。

 

「狂騷」放在當代臺灣中文的語意,似乎比任何詞語都更適切地表達我們對上一個20年代的感受,也透露了我們對下一個20年代的某種預期。

因此我們用「狂騷」作為大稻埕國際藝術節的主標語。

 

用「狂騷」,我們想說的其實是創造力(Creativity),那是最適切於標識1920年代的特質。

 

狂騷的年代,看起來狂熱而騷動,表現爲各種各樣挑戰傳統的激進思潮與社會行動,但在近百年後我們回顧,發現其中最重要的質素即是當時人們對時代變化的回應。

 

畢卡索、達利的繪畫,魯迅、芥川龍之介、海明威、費滋傑羅的小説,包浩斯學派的建築,甘地的不合作運動,葛蘭西的革命理論,陳獨秀的新青年雜誌,蔣渭水與文化協會的文化運動,皆是當時人們出於生命本質之創造力的驅動,對時代的不滿做出反響、反擊。

 

在臺灣,那個年代是現代臺灣認同初次形成的時代,也是臺灣人在世界之獨特使命初次被指認的時代。我們認爲,帶領新世代的創作人去認識理解那個年代,對未來的臺灣文化創造是非常重要的。

 

從更大的視野來看,今天整個人類所面臨的生存問題,其實都在世界進入現代化的1920年代就植下了根源。要看清2020年代人類的困境與出路,一定要回頭審視百年前的現代化之路是哪裡走對了,哪裡走錯了。

 

質言之,我們關心的不只是文藝而是文化,甚至不只是文化而是文明。

 

大稻埕在1920年代是臺灣文化運動的基地,是最能夠代表現代臺灣精神的所在。

 

我們再次以大稻埕作為下一波臺灣文化運動的基地,我們所想要表現、想要描繪、想要影響的對象,直指向2020年代之後的臺灣與世界,也就是現在與未來。

 

從上一個20年代到下一個20年代,結合我的20年代與你的20年代,通過激發許多的創作累積而成爲文化運動。新世代的藝術狂騷,經過時間沉澱,將成爲思想文化的質地。

 

這就是大稻埕國際藝術節的願景與夢想。

About

Tua-Tiu-Tiann International Festival of Arts (TTTIFA)

 

Welcome to Tua-Tiu-Tiann International Festival of Arts

It is a time capsule theater linking 1920s with 2020s.

The spirit of Tua-Tiu-Tiann is the spirit of 1920s.

 

1920s is an era filled with passions and ideals, and when Taiwan and the World entered into modernity. Intellectual youths uprose across the globe fought for liberty, equality, and independence. 

 

Tua-Tiu-Tiann at the time was a Taiwanese neighborhood under Japanese Colonization, and served as the commercial and trading center of Taiwan. It was also the birthplace of modern     Taiwan identity and the foundation of Taiwan Cultural Movement. 

 

On October 17th 1921 Chiang, Wei-shui founded Taiwanese Cultural Association in Tua-Tiu-Tiann stating that the Taiwanese mandate is to promote civilization advancement. Since then New Taiwan Culture Movement proliferated across Taiwan. 

All types of artworks, in the form of literature, art, theater, and music, representing modern Taiwan identity began to flourish, and they were all gathered here in Tua-Tiu-Tiann. In terms of theater works all genereof artists performed in New Theater, Eraku-Za, First Theater, while new style play, modern play, Chinese Opera, Taiwanese Opera, and Puppetry were constantly performed here, as a result Tua-Tiu-Tiann was known as “Theater Hub” where all kind of theaters converged. Reflecting Tua-Tiu-Tiann as the epicenter of modern Taiwanese art. 

 

“Tua-Tiu-Tiann International Festival of Arts” is initiated by Thinker’s Theater, Bookstore 1920s, Chiang Wei-shui’s Cultural Foundation. Every year TTIFA connect numerous local cultural groups, who have cultivated Tua-Tiu-Tiann holding nearly a hundred art and cultural performance in October. 

 

TTTIFA focuses on cross-era, cross-fields, cross-boarders, cross-cultures, and even cross-languages art performances, combining innovative experimental performance style with local culture and history. Most importantly integrating the historical landmarks in Tua-Tiu-Tiann as venues developing local creations. 

 

Every year the “1920s Costume Parade” on the weekends of October 17th has became one of the highlights for “Tua-Tiu-Tiann International Festival of Arts”. Inviting everyone to dress up as his or her favorite 1920s person and walk through the once prosperous streets and alleys listening to those slowly forgotten yet moving stories. There are performances interspersed throughout the parade as if traveled back a hundred years to 1920 Tua-Tiu-Tiann of the world. 


 

1920s Spirit 

 

“Kyousou (狂騷)20s” is the Japanese translation of the English phrase “Roaring 20s.  The meaning of “roaring (狂騷)” in contemporary Taiwan Mandarin seems to describe our perception of the last 20s more accurately than any other term, and it also disclose our expectations of the coming 20s, therefore we have decided to use “roaring” as the slogan of inaugural Tua-Tiu-Tian International Festival of Arts.  

 

In using “roaring” we are actually trying to express “creativity”, which was the most symbolic characteristic of 1920s.  Roaring era seemed frenetic and chaotic expressed with all types of social movement and radical ideology challenging existing traditions.  Yet looking back a century later, we discover the quintessential quality was the response from the people as time evolved.  The paining from Picasso and Dali; the novels written by Lu Xun, Akutagawa, Hemingway, and Fitzgerald; Bauhaus school of architecture, Gandhi’s non-cooperation movement, Gramsci’s revolution theory, “New Youth Magazine” from Chen Duxiu, and Chiang, Wei-Shui and Taiwan Cultural Association’s cultural movement.  These were all driven by the creativity deep within human nature to retaliate against the resentment of the era.  

 

During that era here in Taiwan, it was the first time modern Taiwan identity was formed, and an era where the unique mission of Taiwanese was first identified.  We believe it is essential for the future of Taiwan’s culture creation that we are leading the new generation creators to learn and understand that era.  From a broader perspective the current issue of survival that human race is facing was rooted during the first modernization back in 1920s.  In order to understand this humanity’s predicament and provide a solution for the 2020s one must examine the first modernization a century earlier.  What went wrong? What went right?  We are not only concern about arts, but also culture. In truth it is not just culture we are concerned it is the civilization!

 

Tua-Tiu-Tiann was the foundation for the Taiwan Cultural Movement back in the 1920s.  It is a place that can best represent modern Taiwan spirit.  We want Tua-Tiu-Tiann to once again be the foundation for the next wave of Taiwan Cultural movement.  And the audiences we want to influence, express, and illustrate are directed at Taiwan and the world after 2020, a future soon to be present.  Traveling from the last 20s to the next 20s, integrating your 20s with our 20s, we are accumulating numerous stimulated creations to form a cultural movement.  The roaring arts of new era once aged through time will become foundation for ideas and cultures.  That is the vision and dream for Tua-Tiu-Tiann International Festival of Arts perhaps the mission.
