公開講座 Public Seminar
紀錄劇場的真實與「真實效應」Truth and ‘Truth Effects’ in Documentary Theatre

Paul Dwyer將會透過展示他的表演及其他藝術家的作品片段,強調紀錄劇場創作人使用的技巧,其實與虛構表演的編劇和導演有不少相通之處。Paul將會檢視不同類型的演出,印證Janelle Reinelt所指,紀錄作品中存在的核心張力。

In this seminar, illustrated with excerpts from video documentation of Paul’s performances and other artists’ productions, Paul look at the extent to which documentary theatre-makers are using many of the same techniques as writers and directors of fictional performances. Looking closely at a diverse range of performances, Paul will draw out what Janelle Reinelt sees as the critical tension in documentary work between a “realist epistemology” and “phenomenological engagement”.

Master Class:Staging the Texture of Texts in Documentary Theatre




In these workshop sessions, Paul will bring participants to explore some of the general principles of creating documentary theatre work while focusing on the specific challenges posed by different types of documentary source materials: (i) autobiographical stories, (ii) interviews, and (iii) ‘found’ archival materials. We will look at how to generate, edit and shape such materials into a performance text. There is just as much information to be found in the ‘texture’ of the source materials as there is in their ideational content. Indeed, the key to making beautiful, compelling, transformative documentary theatre is often to play with these textures until a form imposes itself on the social content of the work, rather than trying to bend the content too soon into a neatly organised argument.

表演講《布干維爾島影像計劃》Performance Lecture: The Bougainville Photoplay Project


Paul Dwyer追溯了他父親Allan Dwyer在1960年代前往布干維爾地區(巴布亞新幾內亞)的旅程。他父親是一位享譽世界的骨科醫生,曾在布干維爾地區為許多患有小兒麻痺症的孩子進行手術,令他們康復重生。然而,這些個人故事很快就與澳洲在該地區的殖民史糾纏在一起:極具爭議的巨大銅礦場開始營運,環境遭受破壞,布干維爾居民奮起抵抗,還有一場造成了多達20,000人死亡的戰爭。自2004年,Paul Dwyer前往布干維爾地區進行研究,探討戰後和解的過程,並追蹤他父親與布干維爾孩子之間那些被遺忘已久的相遇。


「形式介乎溫馨的大學教學和旅遊幻燈片秀之間,Paul Dwyer博士的《布干維爾島影像計劃》透過影像述說復和公義的過程。它易於理解,幽默感十足,且令人感動。)《悉尼先驅晨報》


「Paul Dwyer博士重新發明了劇場。」《嘩然網上雜誌》


In this intimate “performance lecture”, Paul Dwyer retraces the journeys made by his father, Dr Allan Dwyer, to the region of Bougainville (Papua New Guinea) during the 1960s. Dr Dwyer (Senior) was at this time a world-renowned orthopaedic surgeon: the operations he performed in Bougainville helped dozens of children to recover from the crippling effects of polio. These personal stories, however, soon become entangled with the larger narrative of Australia’s colonial involvement in the region: the opening of the giant Panguna copper mine, environmental devastation and Bougainvillean resistance, a war that cost the lives of up to 20,000 people. Since 2004, Paul Dwyer has been making his own journeys to Bougainville, conducting research on the post war reconciliation process and following the impact of those long-forgotten encounters between his father and the Bougainvillean children.


“Pitched somewhere between cosy university tutorial and travelogue slide show, Dr Paul Dwyer's Bougainville Photoplay Project is an illustrated account of restorative justice in action. It is accessible, disarmingly funny and affecting.” Sydney Morning Herald
