Bakkhai 上演期間中ずっと聴いていた曲 ♪

” I’m eclectic musically, though a little out of touch with contemporary pop. Anyway, I bought a record player for the first time this year and got excited about buying records and bought the re-release of three Captain Beefheart albums from the 70s. Clear Spot was the only song I wanted to listen to for the whole run of Bakkhai. It has an amazing, dirty kind of riff – energising and sexual. It got me earthed and excited before the performance. I would lock myself in the loo at the Almeida and listen to it before going on stage."

So It Goes からの Quotes ☆

DM: Are you able to keep an eye on yourself? You’re a hugely successful actor and there are lots of things going on. How do you Keep a hold of yourself inside all of that noise? There are times when there are lots of people on the phone to you, lots of people trying to get hold of you, lots of projects. These are all the problems of success, of course, but how do you maintain yourself in all of it?

BW: I’m still figuring that out. What I’ve realised is that I’m somebody who needs quite a lot of time alone. I was just listening to this amazing Neil Young album, On the Beach, and there’s this great song by the same name when he talks about how he needs an audience, but he can’t face the audience day to day. The conundrum of being a person in the public eye- you live off people watching you, but with the conflicting impulse to retreat or to be alone or to be quiet. That’s the only thing I know I have to give myself: time away to be quiet.

♪ Neil Young - On The Beach

The world is turnin', I hope it don't turn away,
The world is turnin', I hope it don't turn away.
All my pictures are fallin' from the wall where I placed them yesterday.
The world is turnin', I hope it don't turn away.

I need a crowd of people, but I can't face them day to day,
I need a crowd of people, but I can't face them day to day.
Though my problems are meaningless, that don't make them go away.
I need a crowd of people, but I can't face them day to day.

I went to the radio interview, but I ended up alone at the microphone,
I went to the radio interview, but I ended up alone at the microphone.
Now I'm livin' out here on the beach, but those seagulls are still out of reach.
I went to the radio interview, but I ended up alone at the microphone.

Get out of town, think I'll get out of town,
Get out of town, think I'll get out of town.
I head for the sticks with my bus and friends,
I follow the road, though I don't know where it ends.
Get out of town, get out of town, think I'll get out of town.
'Cause the world is turnin', I don't want to see it turn away.

また、アートコースを取ったー ?! ☆ サンデータイムズの記事


Louis Wise   Published: 19 July 2015
He wants to break free 

After his geeky Q in Skyfall, the enigmatic actor Ben
Whishaw is showing his wild side as the god Bacchus.
And sometimes he dreams of just being himself
Sunlight pours down on the Islington street where I am due to meet Ben Whishaw for lunch; London, for once, is having a summer. At the Almeida theatre, across the road, the actor is about to perform in a new version of Euripides's Bakkhai - the next instalment in the theatre's Greeks season, which is modishly retooling the ancients. The most important question is already clear: will we sit inside or out?

The publicist has kindly booked a table for us, but it's inside, far away, down some stairs. It feels like a test. Will we get the fey, wan Whishaw of lore, a sprite who wants to hide away indoors? This is the lovable little geek who plays the tech boffin Q in the Bond movies and recently lent his voice to Paddington Bear. Or will it be the more electric, full-bodied thing who has played his fair share of stars, divas and sociopaths (see his murderous Grenouille in Perfume, or his Richard Ⅱ in the BBC's The Hollow Crown, or his 2013 West End turn in Jez Butterworth's Mojo, as the criminal crackpot Baby)?

Eventually, Whishaw, 34, arrives from rehearsal in jeans, T-shirt and trainers, all varying shades of black, and decides, "I think outside, don't you?"

Thank God, or the gods. In Bakkhai, Whishaw is playing Dionysos, also called Bacchus, the god of theatre, transformation and wine. If he couldn't handle a bit of English heat, you'd wonder how he could transmit the scorched - earth savagery of the early Hellenes. And Bakkhai - or the Bacchae, as it is often known: the poet Anne Carson provides a new version here - is a savage play.

First performed in 405 BC, it charts the arrival of Dionysos in the city of Thebes. The women have fallen under his spell and gone wild up on the hill, but in the city, Pentheus (Bertie Carvel) refuses to acknowledge the god's existence. This has horrible consequences.

Cheeringly, Whishaw's turn as Dionysos will involve him wearing a dress, as that is the Bacchic uniform. He tries to describe it: "Something inspired by a whirling dervish - but more feminine," This afternoon, they are about to have their first stab at some wild Bacchic dancing, so he wants to keep lunch light (he plumps for a nice john dory) and there is no question of wine, however apt that might be. What will the dancing entail?

"Stomping and shaking? God knows. Ecstatic dancing? Does he like to dance? "I love to dance," he says with rare ardour, "Do you?"

Whishaw is one of those actors who really only wants to act: personal self-exposure doesn't float his boat. He is courteous, but a cultivated vagueness hangs over every answer. We discuss why he is playing Dionysos; it does seem to be perfect casting, especially if you saw him in Mojo. Baby's psychopathic switchers, his seductive tics and fabulous dance sequence were surely primers for the Greek god. But apparently no: the idea was mooted by this show's director, James Macdonald, about five years ago. So why has it stuck? "I dunno, I have no idea, really," he replies. A long Pause. "You'd have to ask him," he concludes with a little laugh.

My hunch is that of course Whishaw knows, but he's damned if he's going to summarize it in soundbites. ("I do good crazy!") He has been in the public eye for 11 years now, since his youthful Hamlet caused a frenzy at the Old Vic, but he knows the eternal rule: let the performances do the talking, and never mind the talking about it. This makes for an interview rich in pauses and, by the count of my transcript, a good 50 yeses, "Yeahs" and "Yeps"

I don't think it's all entirely deliberate, it just seems to be who he is; but I don't think he minds the overall effect, either. Jane Campion, who directed him in the beautiful Bright Star (he played the poet John Keats), once described him as a cat, and, though it seems so obvious, it is hard to top it, except to ponder the breed. The glare of an Abyssinian, maybe, mixed with the homeliness of a tabby.

And there's this: he knows when to turn it on. As I push and prod about Dionysos, Whishaw, who spends much of our time together looking a little off into the street, finally turns his head towards me, makes direct eye contact and does that full Whishaw thing. "What we're exploring with Dionysos, and I suppose it's true of Baby, is that Dionysos gets into your mind, you know? He messes with your head and he finds your weakness." Right. And surely that's fun to play? His answer is a dirty cackle.

Meanwhile, there is Q and Bond. Whishaw made his appreciated franchise debut in 2012's mega-hit Skyfall. His Q was a wry wonk who spent his time in dark bunkers, sipping tea and getting Daniel Craig out of trouble via the internet, or what have you. (Counterintuitive casting: Whishaw says he is hopeless with most technology.) He returns as Q for this November's hotly anticipated sequel, Spectre. It is, he concedes, a bigger role this time, but clearly all of the cast are bound to tight nondisclosure agreements, and he has no problem with sticking to them. Still, to sum up: yes, he gets out of the bunker this time, but no, he still doesn't get to do any stunts. Is that a disappointment?
"Umm, no. Not particularly. I like what I have to do, I like the function Q serves in the film. Which is to do the opposite of stunts." (When Whishaw isn't being wafty, he can be wonderfully tart.) Most of his peers are desperate to beef up and get a Marvel franchise under their belt, but not him. "I'm not particularly interested in them," he chuckles. "You can only really do what you love, I suppose, is the thing."

What he loves is acting in its purest form. I ask him what he's have done if he hadn't acted for a living, and for once his answer is convincing in its lameness - "Something in the arts?" When pushed he suggests maybe painting, as he recently took up an art foundation course: "I love visual art, I find it very exciting." That sounds fun, but he doesn't go into specifics; he just likes he doesn't go into specifics; he just likes "everything, everything". I suddenly wonder if he'd want to go and see Decision, Carsten Höller's show at the Hayward; would he go down one of the artist's slides? Would he go "Wheeeeee!" as he flew down the chute? Who knows? He is intrigued, but he won't commit. "Maybe I'll go check it out."

After the play, Whishaw will have to promote a raft of films coming out this autumn: not just Spectre, but a Greek-directed art-house piece, The Lobster; Suffragette, with Carey Mulligan and Meryl Streep; and In the Heart of the Sea, where he plays the author Herman Melville. (Stills of this film portray a ship buffeted on a wild and turbulent sea, but Whishaw, as the film's narrator, avoids all this again - "I'm on dry land," he confirms dryly,) What will he do when all that is done? "Something else. Probably I wouldn't do very much. Just live, and see my family. Travel, maybe."

He evaded questions about his private life for a long time, but eventually it was announced that, in 2012, he had entered into a civil partnership with the composer Mark Bradshaw. He is cautious about any kind of definition. As he confirms: "I have a lot of respect for people who dislike labels and who refuse to be labelled." Still, considering the progress of the past few years, would he turn his civil partnership into a marriage?
"No. I've no don't feel the need to do that. No. "I mention that the marriage law has been an interesting one to discuss with various people: what it means about gay identity, about the need to conform, about what our life choices should be. He is intrigued, but quite clear on his line. "I just think it's fantastic that it's happened. I think, just now, what needs to happen is that straight couples can be civil
partnered. Then we're all even, aren't we?"

As he dislikes labels so much, can I suggest another? "Bedfordshire's Ben Whishaw." He gives another good laugh. He grew up there, in a non-theatrical family, before going to Rada. (His father's name is Jose, and Whishaw is a name quite new to the family; the actor's Latin roots are visible in his readiness to tan.) What is Bedfordshire like? "Er... Have you ever been? Traveled through it on the way to somewhere else?" Maybe... is that where Luton airport is? "Yeah. So. You've been to Bedfordshire. You know what it's like." All the more need, then, for a goodwill ambassador? Another laugh. "It's just a little place next to more interesting places."

He was dazzlingly young when burst forth as Hamlet. How does he look back on that now? "I don't ever really look back on things. I can't really remember, and I don't ever spend any time thinking about stuff I've done, really." Is that because he likes to keep motoring forward? "Yeah...I just also don't think I have a very good memory." I burst out laughing; he protests. "I don't! It just sort of fades away." As for the far future, he is a bit vague on that too, but in fairness, that's because nothing is finalised. Another Dionysian thing is on the horizon: A Freddie Mercury biopic. "A complicated human" is his assessment, for now.

If Whishaw is an actor to his core, there is clearly a life he is happy to live out of character. "Some days I think I've had enough of pretending to be someone else, and I just want to live my life and not do what I'm told for a while."

He relays a conversation he had with Anna Chancellor (his co-star in the BBC drama The Hour). "I was moaning about how something in the way actors were treated was annoying, and she was, like" - he imitates her, very well - "Well, darling, we are children, aren't we? So you must expect to be treated like a child." In a way, she's right, you have to be like a child. But also, we're not children, and it's strange sometimes."

For any sane person, being infantilised all the time is grim: it's to his credit that he sees it. Then again, the sun is shining, and he's about to dance all afternoon. It's fun to play, "Yes, it is," he replies. For once, the answer feels entirely definite.

●”When Whishaw isn't being wafty, he can be wonderfully tart.”

(※ ↑ アートコースを取ったのは10代の終わり、RADA に入る前のこと=8月に直接ベンに確認 by uraracat。記者さん、しっかりしてくれ~!) 

●この新聞タイトルの " He Wants to Break Free " というのは、クイーンの曲 " I Want to Break Free " をもじってる?

●Bakkhai もダンスピースになりそうな予感。。。

 ベンのパパが Jose (”ホセ”と発音)という名まえから類推してラテン系と断定。「ベンがきれいに日焼けしそうな肌なので、想像に難くない」とのことですが・・・・・。私は???(以前のインタビューの家系の記事読んでないのかなァ、この方は・・・・・ベンは、ドイツ、ロシア、フランス系イギリス人です!)

●わかっていたけど、やっぱり In the Heart of the Sea(白鯨のいた海) の役はナレーター(作家であり狂言回し)。

●Civil Partnership と Marriage はやはり違うのね。
「逆に、男女カップルも civil partner になれば、おあいこ」っていうくだり、お見事!!




ベン、やっと Bakkhai 終わったら休めるねー。
