一個武生 – 2015
這是一部有關崑曲武生的人物紀錄片。

楊陽,28歲,在南京學習並從事崑曲近15年,專攻武生。畢業後,同輩武生陸續離開轉行,劇團現在就只剩他一個青年武生。

崑曲被聯合國教科文組織 (UNESCO) 列為人類非物質文化遺產後,再次吸引國內外觀眾的注目,然而在這崑曲的盛世當中,楊陽看不到自己的未來,看不到任何的希望,只因由才子佳人擔綱的文戲備受追捧,武生的演出機會少之又少。

曾經立志在傳統舞台獨當一面的楊陽,竟然選擇拒絕傳承武生師傅的技藝,更深信離開是必然的宿命,就有如他演出《夜奔》的林沖,前程和命運不是都走到日落西山的地步嗎?

惟有絕望,楊陽找到推倒重來的勇氣;因為絕望,他找到另一種繼承崑曲的方式。楊陽如何從傳統被動的崑曲演員,走到當代劇場嘗試與創作?他如何從無奈接受命運,蛻變成一個主宰自己前程的真我?

一個武生,離經叛道,獨行上路。

My Next Step – 2015
Kunqu Opera is one of the oldest existing performing art forms in China. Ever since it was proclaimed as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 2001, this 600-year-old art form has been taken seriously again.

MY NEXT STEP tracks the life of young Kunqu Opera artist YANG Yang (28-years-old) over several years. He is the last young wusheng (martial hero role) in the troupe and is considering quitting the profession. He commits to his profession since junior high school and saddles with the responsibility of preserve and develop this heritage theatrical form. He feels desperate but tries to explore other ways out.

The documentary explores the complexities young artists face in the brave new world of contemporary China, the way they understand tradition, art, dream, life and themselves.

Fill with performance excerpts from both traditional and experimental form of Kunqu Opera, MY NEXT STEP offers an intimate look into the world of Kunqu and the inspiring journey of a young man struggles with a fading art.
