戏台老旧。留住某些结局, 必须使用吊过的嗓子。 ——抛出的水袖无声翻卷,其中 藏着世间最深的沉寂。 ——有兰花指,未必有春天; 有小丑,则必有欢乐。 有念白,天,也许真的就白了。年月 长过一代又一代观众,却短于 半个夜晚。万水千山仍只是 一圈小碎步,使苦难看上去 比欢乐更准确。 ——愤怒是你的,也是我的。 悲伤,所有人来分它,就会越分越多…… 最后,散尽的繁华都交给 一声叹息来收拾。 那在后台调油彩的人最懂得:脸, 要变成脸谱, 才不会在锣鼓的催促中消失。


The stage is old. You must use a trained voice to preserve some endings. — the flowing sleeves are silently rolled to hoard the deepest solitude in the world. — Orchid-figure gesture calls no spring but clown surely brings joy. After blank verses, the sky maybe be bright. Time is longer than generations of audiences but shorter than half a night. By a small step circling the stage, you experience all mountains and rivers, so the misery is more real than jubilance. — Animosity belongs to you and me. Sadness is multiplied if more people want to share ... At the end, all prosperousness must be concluded by a simple sign. Only backstage makeup master knows better: face must be covered by a face mask for not to disappear in the urging of drums.


The Crack

从完整的事物,它开始, 让一颗没有准备的心, 突然有了此岸与彼岸。 于是,有人学习造桥, 有人学习造船…… 一个未知的幽灵在掌控这一切,并为远航 培养出了出色的水手。直到 它彻底裂开, 互不相干的两半被一段 空白隔开。 看上去,各自完整; 看上去,裂隙仿佛已不在场。


It starts from the completion and let an unprepared heart suddenly has this shore and the other shore. Then, someone learns to build a bridge, someone learns to build a ship … An unknown ghost controlsall and trains good sailors for a faraway voyage, until it's completely fractured, two halves that are not related to each other split apart. It looks like that each half is a completion And no crack appears.
