戲棚,一座座以竹竿搭建而成的臨時劇場,每年都會出現在香港不同的角落,漁村、鄉鎮、小島與市區,可謂到處都有它們的築跡。這早於一百五十年前已出現的文化場所,是香港獨有保存的非物質文化遺產,集結戲棚搭建技藝、民間風俗與戲曲藝術於一身。
影片豐富紀錄這文化場所出現的不同族群:戲棚師傅如何搭建容納千人的劇場空間;鄉民如何參與娛神娛人的酬神活動;劇團如何搬演一段段扣人心弦的戲曲表演。透過鏡頭,帶著觀眾遊走於他們當中,傾聽他們的對話、了解他們的生活,感受這一座座戲棚蘊藏的魅力。

Bamboo Theatre - 2019
While permanent theatres are commonly built in most cosmopolitan modern cites, Hong Kong preserves a unique form of architecture, a Chinese tradition that has lasted more than a century – Bamboo Theatre, a makeshift, open-air and the bamboo shed built and fixed by plastic straps and without any heavy-duty materials.
During festivities in the villages, they will invite Chinese opera troupes to perform ritualistic opera in the temporary theatre constructed in front of the temple, in order to express their gratitude to the Chinese gods they worship. Spirits, ghosts and gods were the primary audiences.
This film follows ritual practices in various villages and remote islands of Hong Kong for two years. It is the portrait of this traditional cultural space, how they were build and dismantled, and also the collaborative work of performers, stage managers and wardrobe masters. It allows audiences to observe multiple corners of the space, and the variety of ways in which people make use of it.
