HK Dance Company: "Mazu the Sea Goddess" 香港舞蹈團:《媽祖》

Cultural Centre - Grand Theatre

"媽 祖" 古老的福建湄洲島上,誕生一女取名林默,自小與大海共生共存。瘟疫來襲,奪走無數漁民生命,林默鋌而走險上山採藥挽救鄉親。巨浪滔天,傳說海龍王發怒,需獻祭少女才能平息風波,她隻身奔赴深海,奪回漁民生命,幻化成紅光指引歸途。從此,世代傳誦着林默化身媽祖女神,永遠守護浩瀚無垠的大海,保佑炎黃子孫平安回家。 大型原創舞劇《媽祖》,由國家一級演員閻紅霞聯袂香港舞蹈團藝術總監楊雲濤導演及編舞,與一眾頂尖設計師攜手創作,刻畫媽祖聖潔而崇高的精神特質,傳承積澱千年的沿海民俗文化與價值。 "Mazu the Sea Goddess" A girl named Lin Mo is born on the ancient island of Meizhou in Fujian province, and grows up living in harmony with the ocean. When an epidemic breaks out, taking the lives of countless fishermen, Lin Mo risks her life gathering medicinal herbs from the mountains to save the other villagers. One day, a tempest sweeps in. Legend has it that a young girl must be sacrificed to appease the Dragon King of the seas and calm the waves. To save the fishermen, Lin Mo throws herself into the sea, where she is transformed into a red ray of light guiding their way home. From this time on, Lin Mo is celebrated as Mazu the Sea Goddess, guarding the vast seas and guiding her people safely home. ================================================== ** Show starts at 7:45pm, we meet at 7:30 pm ** Tickets -- we will buy the $380 category -- standard price $380, senior (over 60) 50% discount -- $8 handling fee for each ticket -- seating will be a set of 4 per current's government restriction. -- we will try our best to have the sets of 4 close to each other **Please RSVP by noon Sept 30 **accompanied by payment. **Preferred method of payment: Payme to Margaret Lam (telephone number appeara at RSVP) **If you need to use other methods of payment, please send me a WhatsApp message. **Please note that I will buy tickets shortly, as tickets may go very quickly. **If you have RSVPed for a while but still have not paid by Sept 30 noon, I will not wait, and you may be placed on the waiting list. **RSVP may be closed when good tickets are no longer available. **Optional pre-theatre dinner, details to be followed, and to be determined upon government's restriction.
