在世界舞台展现东方魅力——中国表演艺术团体美国APAP展会大放异彩

 

美国表演艺术家协会(APAP-Association of PerformingArts Presenter) 一年一度的展示交流会在纽约如火如荼地进行着。此次展会不仅吸引了美国当地50个州的演出团体参与,同时也有全球超过33个国家的艺术创作团队远渡重洋参与到此次盛会当中。这其中也包括了我国很多优秀的演出团体,他们带着自己潜心创作的最新作品而来,敲开世界的大门,让世界目睹拥有独特魅力的东方文化。

如果时间倒退回到十几年前,在任何工业或者制造行业的展销会上看到中国代表团体都不会感到惊讶,中国有着世界上最大量的劳动资源,但在文化艺术领域却鲜有作品能够走出国门。随着近些年全世界包括中国在内的表演艺术家们不断的进行跨国演出和文化交流,中国也已经逐渐成为了世界上最大的表演艺术市场之一,仅在2016年,中国表演艺术的票房收入就已经达到了161.7亿元(25.4亿美元)。这意味着表演艺术在今天的中国已经进入了一个极速上升的发展阶段,这和艺术家们的辛勤努力和与时俱进的创新精神是分不开的。

本次代表我国参加第60届APAP展会的有直接隶属于中国文化部的九个国家级表演艺术团体,他们是:中国中央芭蕾舞团;中国歌剧舞剧院;中国东方演艺集团;中央民族乐团;中国国家交响乐团;中国国家京剧院;中央歌剧院;中国儿童艺术剧院;中国国家话剧院。

除了国家直属演出单位,还有很多优秀的演出个人和团体也带来了他们最新的作品参加展示。其中包括由LotusLee戏剧工作室(上海莲李文化传播有限公司)倾力打造的高科技3D舞台剧《三体》;陶身体剧场及作品《6》和《7》;北京当代芭蕾舞团及作品《夜宴》;亚彬舞影工作室及舞剧《青衣》;沼泽乐队及《时空相对论》音乐会;山西华晋舞剧团及舞剧《粉墨春秋》等。这些参展的艺术团体均代表了中国国内表演艺术界的最高水品,他们共同的特点都是在保留原有的中国特色基础上加入了技术以及概念上的西方元素,从而衍生出一种新的艺术表现手法,同时又都各具特色。这些新的艺术表现形式不仅迎合了观众对于传统艺术的喜好,更是吸引了大批年轻的艺术爱好者,满足了他们对现代西方元素和传统艺术结合的好奇心。

在会议期间的中美演艺交流研讨会上,主办方鼓励了像LotusLee戏剧工作室(上海莲李文化传播有限公司)这样敢于创新,敢于实践的年轻的艺术创作团队。舞台剧《三体》改编自第一位获得“雨果奖”的中国作家刘慈欣的同名科幻小说。舞台剧的制作结合了多项亚洲首创的高科技投影技术,为观众带来前所未有的视觉感官话剧新体验。

 

此次APAP展会对参展的世界各地艺术家们意义非凡,对于我国的优秀演出团体更是一次难得的推广交流的机会。众多优秀表演艺术家和制作、经纪公司通过此次展会的参与,有效的将中国表演艺术资源进行了整合,旨在建立一个完善而合理的购买和销售表演艺术产品的平台,更有效的向世界展示来自于中国的丰富表演艺术资源及其快速发展的表演艺术市场。相信在像APAP这样的大型活动的推动下,我们中国的表演艺术行业可以很快又进入到一个新的发展阶段,在接下来的2017年,可以让全球观众在国内外的各大剧场都能看到更多我们国家优秀艺术家们的精彩演出,让世界感受我们的东方魅力。
