身體行動方法(Method of Physical Actions,簡稱MPA),是鍾明德教授自1999201920年時間,琢磨俄國戲劇大師史坦尼斯拉夫斯基(Konstantin Stanislavski)的表演訓練,波蘭導演葛羅托斯基(Jerzy Grotowski)的藝乘研究,加上自身廢寢忘食、全然投入的探索,終於鑽研出一套可以讓表演者出神入化、反璞歸真的工作方法。

在這部紀錄片中,鍾明德教授現身說法,直白地分享了MPA的技術與奧妙,帶領學生們回到他與MPA相遇的起點:賽夏族的矮靈祭。同時,藉由吳文翠、林佑貞、蘇子中、碧斯蔚.梓佑(Pisui Ciyo)和多位同行者的見證與分享,印證了MPA是個很珍貴和實用的身體實踐研究方法。

  這個《身體行動方法》DVD附加的小書,包含了以下四個文件:

  1. MPA 3.0簡介:歷史地和理論地說明MPA(身體行動方法)的來龍去脈,為整個DVD的敘述提供了更學術性的理論基礎。

  2. 《我倆經》:這個1371字的文本乃MPA的《心經》──身體行動方法的理論和實踐簡明地立基於此,方便表演者/行者的朝夕課誦,依教奉行。

  3. The I-I Sutra:《我倆經》的英文版,方便表演者/行者從不同的文脈一窺葛羅托斯基的教誨精華。

  4. 《我倆經》注:身體行動之外,理論辯證也是不容忽視的一環。「博學之,審問之,慎思之,明辨之,篤行之」,真的是表演者/行者朝朝暮暮、終身不輟的課業。

  以上這四個文件均出自《三身穿透本質出:自殘、裸體與慈悲》一書(鍾明德著,20207月由臺北藝術大學出版),有延伸閱讀需要者可參考該書的引用書目和書目註。

To the Reader

  You! hypocrite lecteur!—mon semblable,—mon frère!

  This Method of Physical Actions DVD includes this booklet, with four discourses.

  1. An introduction to MPA 3.0: historically and theoretically elucidating the ins and outs of MPA (the Method of Physical Actions), providing a more academic theoretical foundation for the narration of the DVD.

  2. The Chinese version of Grotowski’s I-I Sutra : this 1371 word long sutra is the heart of MPA. The theory and practice of the MPA method are established here, so actors and doers may study it day and night.

  3. The English version of the I-I Sutra is included so actors and doers may examine the essence of Grotowski’s teachings through a different lens.

  4. An explanation of the I-I Sutra : the key of Grotowski’s concept of Art as vehicle is that in addition to physical actions, theoretical dialectics must not be neglected. “Learn thoroughly, examine meticulously, ponder deeply, discern attentively, practice seriously;” this is the daily exercise that an actor or doer practices daily to the end of their days.

  These four discourses are taken from Self-Mutilation, Nudity, and Compassion: The Essence Shines When You Penetrate the Three Bodies by Professor Mingder Chung (published in July 2020, Taipei National University of the Arts). For further reading, please refer to the Bibliography and Notes.
