FIGHT CLUB | AN IMMERSIVE THEATRE EXPERIENCE

Urban Aphrodite Presents Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk

搏击俱乐部讲述了一个异乎寻常的故事,这个故事围绕一个不满于现状的无名氏白领,患有严重的失眠症,过着简易朴素的“宜家”生活。因缺乏对人生的理解以及改变其现状的勇气,他向张口即是长篇大论、人生哲理的肥皂商人Tyler Durden寻求帮助,希望以此引导其自我认知的道路。Tyler Durden虽然阴冷灰暗,但却颇具人格魅力。在搏击俱乐部,他获得的远远多于团体咨询会所能给的。人们在一个叫做搏击聚乐部的地下秘密俱乐部聚集,以击倒他人的方式,借着自由搏击获得片刻快感。在主人公卷入了一场Tyler和另一位名为Marla Singer的荡妇的爱恨三角恋。此时,名为Mayhem计划悄无声息地策划着……

搏击俱乐部这部舞台剧深受Chuck Palahniuk小说和David Fincher电影的启发,你定会发现其特别之处。流畅的原创观众互动模式近跟前,届时你会不由自主地跟随着演员,仿佛身临其境。搏击俱乐部中的殴打场景并非传播及宣扬暴力。相反,其深意让你摆脱现代生活拘束和弱化人们的枷锁。搏击俱乐部中所传达的歧义,不由经期观众对Tyler理性的质疑。准备好观赏这场决无先例的舞台视听盛宴吧!

The large cast consists of Shanghai’s best young performers in one amazing space. Starring Seb Martin, Aaron Garcia, Archibald McColl IV, Brian Wang, Peter Damgaard, and Awesta Zarif. The production will be directed by New Zealander Tim College who also adapted the story for the stage.

The Story
Fight Club is an unconventional story about a sleepless, unnamed ‘everyman’ who is dissatisfied and drowning in his white-collar, “IKEA” lifestyle. Lacking the understanding and conviction to change his life, he turns to the shadowy and charismatic Tyler Durden, a philosophy-spouting soap-maker, to guide him on his path to self-realization. He gets much more than that when he gets in on the ground floor of Fight Club, a secret society of men who meet in order to find freedom through beating one another into a pulp. Embroiled in a love-hate triangle with Tyler and a dissolute woman, Marla Singer, the stakes rise for our protagonist as the details of Tyler’s master plan – Project Mayhem – begin to unfold.

Inspired equally by Chuck Palahniuk’s novel and David Fincher’s cult film, Fight Club promises to be a stage experience like no other. The fluid and original audience participation will have you at the edge of your seat (or feet) as you follow the actors to different locations where the action takes place. But the violence of the fight clubs serves not to promote or glorify physical combat; instead, it is about freeing yourself from the shackles of modern life, which imprisons and emasculates men. Fight Club purposely presents an ambiguous message and challenges audience to question Tyler’s philosophy. Prepare for a stage experience like never before!
