146th Lecture — Ritualistic Cantonese Opera in Hong Kong [第一百四十六四講] 香港的粤劇神功戲

https://huma.ust.hk/blog/events/146th-lecture-ritualistic-cantonese-opera-in-hong-kong-第一百四十六四講-香港的粤劇神功/

Prof. Chan Sau-yan had surveyed ritualistic Cantonese opera in 1984, 1985, 1990 and 2006 before he and Dr Estella Lai jointly conducted a new round of study from early 2016 to March 2018 under the generous financial support of Lord Wilson Heritage Trust. This talk will focus on the organisation of a series of ritual opera, construction of the bamboo theatre, sources of funding, local customs, hierarchy in an opera troupe, the training of young actors, characteristics of the shows, and how the gradual decline of the tradition reflects the evolution of Hong Kong.

陳守仁教授先後在1984-1985年、1990年、2006年進行三次神功粤劇普查,成果見於《儀式、信仰、演劇:神功粵劇在香港》和《香港神功戲》等書。2016年初至2018年3月,他與湛黎淑貞博士受到「衛奕信勳爵文物信託」的資助,進行了新一輪的普查。本講座將探討神功粤劇的籌備過程、戲棚搭建、經費來源、地方色彩、戲班組織、演員培訓及演出特點,以及神功粵劇的興衰如何反影香港文化的變遷。
