3話はとてもよかったです。1~2話はそこまでの布石。

Wikipedia の《ソープ事件》を読んでいたのでよくわかりました。

(日本語のこの項、もう、このドラマのことも載っていました)


とにかく、キャスティングが抜群でしたね。みんな合っているし、どなたも上手い!
ノーマン暗殺に関わる小悪者たちの滑稽さ!!女性群のたくましさ!!
ピーター・ベッセル役の人、パブの女将さん最高!


2話を見終わって、とにかくテーマ曲がうるさいくらい畳みかけて、ドラマにリズムを与えていましたが、途中から、あのテーマがモーツァルトの25番に聞こえて、『アマデウス』とごっちゃになって、困りました(笑)絶対下敷きにしていると思う!

*****


Telegraph Magazine をちゃんと訳したくなりました。(友人に頼んで紙のマガジン取り寄せました)

公判で、Norman がはっきりと公言したこと、

「自分みたいな存在が、体制側の圧力で、殺されたり、闇に葬られたりしないで、公に知られることを求める」というのと、

ベンが記事の中で、階級間の確執もあると。

演劇の世界にも明らかに上級クラスとそれ以下のクラスとの違いを思い知らされる場面に直面し、それは自分も感じている。

このドラマは、ゲイスキャンダルということそのものと、階級差という問題も描いていると。



d0160581_20463225.png

髪型や服装も70年代っぽいのが、ダサくて、ノーマン・スコットが馬丁だということもあり、ベンの美しさは横に置いといた演出・・・・?

(それにしても、ベン、何着洋服着たのだろう!というくらい着てましたね)














d0160581_20434272.jpg
ノーマンが法廷を出てすぐの言葉、

I was rude, I was vile, I was queer, and I was myself という言葉に集約されるような、

ノーマン・スコットという人物が正直・天然だが、したたかに賢く、精神安定剤も飲んでいたような・・・たいへん不可思議な人物なので、ベンもそれを考えながら演じ出していた感が強かったですね。

この細かい微妙な視線の運びなど・・・ベン技、披露!
gif でとくとご覧あれ!

d0160581_20585555.gif
d0160581_20592178.gif
Tragic comedy ・・・・
泣き笑い・・・・・


3話のベンは魂が透けて見える場面、ちょっときれいだった。






階級差は、ジェレミー・ソープが、公判後であってもごちそうを運ばせるのと、ノーマンがバスに乗る前にお菓子か何かを買って帰るのの対比がはっきりと示していましたね。
d0160581_20594888.gif
d0160581_21010098.gif
(蜜月の頃、深夜二人で一緒に乗ったバスの2階の席で・・・・それを思い出す最後のシーン)

ベンもインタビューで言っているように、二人の間には確かに《ある愛》があったのですね。








*****



ヒュー・グラントが本当によかった。(これが彼の代表作になるというレビューも読みました)
コメディができる人は本当に上手いことがわかるほど、繊細なきめ細かいところの演技が本当に微妙に上手い!
(パディントン2でも感じました)



d0160581_06532910.jpg


未だに社会保険証を持たない本物のノーマン・スコットさん、
Get Norman Scott a national insurance card!
という運動が始まらないのでしょうか?このドラマ影響で・・・・?!





*****

Be~n、

このドラマであなたが伝えたかった、

★ノーマンとジェレミー・ソープの二人にしかわからないある種の愛

★Gay というマイノリティ、社会的弱者の人間としての尊厳と、英国に根強く残る階級差の問題の提示

★ノーマン・スコットに起きたこと、現在置かれている状態をちゃんと(ベンの言葉で言うところの properly に)公に知らしめること


ちゃんと伝わりましたよー♡♡♡


と、お伝えしておこう。

『パディントン2』UK版DVDの監督コメンタリーを聴きました ♪

日本版DVDは7月4日発売。待ちきれない私は、UK版をヘビーローテ!
コメンタリーで感じたこと、少しずつ綴っていきます。


d0160581_12030986.png


いろいろ綴っていこうと思いましたが、裏ネタばらし(それが面白いのですが)になってしまって本編を純粋に楽しむことができなくなるかもしれず停滞中・・・(個人的には脚本の現場や発想のもとほど興味深いものはないのですが…)

”Bond 25” ☆ ダニー・ボイルが監督として決定

James Bond: Danny Boyle and Daniel Craig confirmed for 007's 25th outing


theguardian.com 25 May 2018





* * * * *




Daniel Craig version of the character has already had a happy ending, but bringing on a filmmaker like Danny Boyle promises something wildly different for 007.


・・・・Purvis and Wade have made major strides in the franchise, but they also tend to rely on the familiar and repeat plot beats. Bringing in Boyle — who his working on the story with his frequent collaborator John Hodge scripting it — suggests we may be looking at a very different Bond than we’ve come to expect when the film lands on
Nov. 8 2019.

・・・・ For Boyle, this level of scrutiny on a project in development is new, he told The Hollywood Reporter Thursday in New York.


・・・・・While filming is not expected to start until the end of this year, and many more details are certain to emerge before then, the quick shooting schedule suggests that Boyle has something new in-store for the character. Now seems like the perfect time to destabilize the public perception of James Bond with a filmmaker willing to chart his own course, because whether or not it works, one thing is certain: James Bond will return.

Getting off Scott-free
BEN WHISHAW PLAYS THE GAY LOVER OF A LEADING UK POLITICIAN IN A NEW BBC DRAMA WHICH CENTRES ON POSSIBLY THE GREATEST SCANDAL EVER TO HIT THE BRITISH ESTABLISHMENT
WORDS SIMON EDGE







d0160581_17510994.jpg

Ben Whishaw is sitting in a caravan in the grounds of a Victorian gothic mansion in Buckinghamshire, with blood splattered all over his face.

The gore seems to have come from a Great Dane called Rinka, which has been shot in front of him. Fortunately, no animals have been harmed in the filming of this scene. I know, because I've just seen the corpse of the dead hound lying in a bed of bubble wrap ー and it's reassuringly prosthetic.

In the late Seventies, poor, butchered Rinka was household name. Her owner, a model called Norman Scott, had been the gay lover of Jeremy Thorpe, the brilliant and ambitious leader of the Liberal Party. To the macabre fascination of the nation, the dog was shot and killed in a botched attempt on the life of Scott himself, who had (what we would now call) stalked Thorpe after the affair came to an end.

In what was billed as the trial of the century, the leader of Britain's third political party was charged with conspiracy and incitement to murder.

The verdict was almost as sensational as the case itself. After a staggeringly biased summing up by the judge, who vilified the prosecution witnesses and suggested to the jury that it was impossible to imagine as decent a chap as Thorpe actually committing buggery, the politician was acquitted of all charges. But it ruined him.

The case has since drawn the attention of a succession of writers. The latest is journalist John Preston, whose book, A Very English Scandal, has been turned into a three-part BBC drama, directed by Stephen Frears ー best-known for his Oscar-winning film The Queen ー and starring Hugh Grant as Thorpe and Whishaw as Scott.

Whishaw, born in 1980, freely admits he knew nothing about the case before he was offered the part, but was shocked by the brutal way in which Scott, the only openly gay witness, and the victim of the plot, was treated at the Old Bailey.

"I'm sort of amazed," he says. "I feel as if attitudes have only really shifted in a widespread way over the past five years or so, when it has become unacceptable to say homophobic things ー even under your breath.

"But for lots of my life it was [acceptable], and you encountered it a lot. And I'm sure it's still happening all over the place.

"Back then, obviously, you could be a senior judge and say all those revolting things, and they painted Norman as this hysterical poof. It's awful, but kind of hilarious as well."


Calling it hilarious may seem like an odd take on the grotesque homophobia of the times, but producer Dan Winch chips in to back him up. "What actually happened was farcical," he says. Indeed, this tongue-in-cheek production takes the view that this may have been the only murder plot ever hatched in the House of Commons, but its bungled execution was hilariously inept.


THE STORY BEGAN in 1960 when Thorpe, then 30 and the MP for North Devon, met 19-year-old stable hand Scott. Despite homosexuality still being illegal, they had a long relationship, with passionate love letters to prove it ー in which the politician called Scott "Bunnies." But these came back to haunt Thorpe after they parted.

Somewhere along the way, Scott lost his National Insurance card ー which he needed to get work ー and trying to get it back fuelled his increasingly obsessive behaviour. When Thorpe brushed him off, Scott asked for money and he remained persistent, even when he got the cash.

By 1975, Thorpe was married, widowed and married again. He had been offered a Cabinet post in a proposed coalition with Edward Heath's Conservatives and had serious ambitions to become prime minister. He began to wish he could rid himself permanently of his stalker. It would, he is reported to have said, be "no worse than killing a sick dog".

He sought the help of his friend Peter Bessel, a fellow West Country MP, who was also a philanderer and a serial bankrupt. Somehow a hitman, in the shape of ex-airline pilot Andrew Newton, became involved, but he was a heavy drinker and so dim that he was nicknamed Chicken Brain. He first botched the killing by going to Dunstable when Scott was in Barnstaple, then famously shot the dog Rinka instead of Scott.

It was these couldn't-make-it-up aspects of the story which fired the imagination of Russell T Davies, creator or Queer as Folk and the revived Doctor Who, and a master of black comedy. He wrote the script for the drama and, in doing so, has brought his own brand of subversiveness to the project.

"It walks the balance between satirical humour and a punch in the gut," says executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins, who previously worked on EastEnders. "That's what's lovely about getting Russell working with Stephen Frears: one of our best writers and one of our best directors working together. We took the book to Russell, who said he had always wanted to tell this story. It's about powerful men, and what they think they can get away with ― the conspiracy of silence. It's also a gay story.

"Russel is the first gay man to tell this story, so he's also looking at the fact that homosexuality had just been [partially] decriminalised while this was going on."

Despite his acquittal, Thorpe found himself shunned after the case, and remained so for the rest of his life. He died little more than three years ago, aged 85, after a long battle with Parkinson's disease, which is why the case can now be dramatised without the worry of libel proceedings.

Treadwell-Collins is quick to point out: "We're careful not to say that Jeremy Thorpe said 'hire that man and kill that [other] man'," he says. "He was found not guilty and nobody knows exactly what happened. But we're going by the version in John Preston's book, because that's the one we've got the rights to. That version implies that Jeremy said, 'Rid me of this man, I'm going to look the other way'."

Alex Jennings, who plays Thorpe's friend Bessell, remembers the Liberal leader from his childhood and sees him ー at least in part ー as a victim of homophobia.

"Jeremy Thorpe was a considerable figure when I was growing up," he says. "My grandparents met him on holiday in Devon. They were Labour supporters and he changed the way they voted. People were in thrall to him and charmed by him. Homosexuality was illegal and he was having to live under the cloud of that, leading a double life. Had it been legal, things might have been very different."

At the time, Scott was portrayed by the press as a pathetic, mincing figure whose life was worthless. It was hard to imagine a charismatic, glittering man such as Thorpe falling for him. In the witness box, he complained that Thorpe had "infected" him with the virus of homosexuality and also told the court that losing his virginity was "like being cut in half."

From an early trailer, however, it appears that Davies has made him into a more defiant, modern figure. We see Whishaw
emerge from the Old Bailey to declare: "I was crude, I was vile, I was queer, I was myself."

But Treadwell-Collins insists that the script does not turn Scott into anything other than what the man truly was.

"At the beginning, Norman is a quiet little guy who gets caught in Jeremy Thorpe's world," he says. "But it changes him, he gains confidence and this is his journey.

"Russell's point is that it was a very brave thing for Norman, at that time, to stand up and say, 'I'm gay and I was having sex with that man'. We show how that emboldened Norman and gave him his voice."

Scott is the only figure directly involved in the case who is still alive. Now in his mid-seventies, he lives in Devon.

Whishaw met him for research. "Norman is a very lovable character on first meeting, very charming, very funny, clever," says the Bafta award-winning star. "The Establishment tried to rally around one of its own, and he was a victim of that."

Whishaw, who appeared in London Spy last year, also has no qualms about modern audiences laughing at the story. "It's farcical yes, just in the way that life sometimes is. None of what Russell has written has been heightened or fantasised. Life, even when it's awful and serious, has a funny element."

A Very English Scandal: TRAILER & BBCインタビュー記事

Interview with Ben Whishaw :
BBC Mediacentre



What’s it been like working with Hugh Grant?
I have loved working with Hugh, he’s wonderful. I have admired his acting for so long. I think he is such a beautiful, delicate comic performer and it’s brilliant to see him play this role, which has this slightly darker edge to it. I just think he’s wonderful. He’s so inventive and free – but so thoughtful and won’t let up until he’s got it exactly how he wants it. I really respect that.

”I Understand Why People Kill"  Ben Whishaw ☆  The Telegraph Magazine

d0160581_06031142.jpg



'I understand why people kill'
:
Actor Ben Whishaw on political scandal, sex, lies and being gay
‘I knew nothing about it,’ says Whishaw when we meet in a hotel next to Liverpool Street Station. ‘It was all a surprise. But I suppose I was drawn to the story on a human level, the strangeness of the situation these men found themselves in, and the kind of obsessive nature of their relationship with one another.’

‘Norman was raised a good Catholic boy,’ says Whishaw, explaining his character’s conflicted feelings about his sexuality and his sense that he had been somehow corrupted by Thorpe. ‘And if you were brought up in a religious home, homosexuality was sinful. I can understand why he did what he did.’


‘To try and hide something is just a torture,’ says Whishaw, who even with a slicked-back quiff and rugged beard radiates a winning gentleness of character. ‘You just want to speak frankly and honestly, it’s much easier.’

‘It’s not hard for me to imagine what it was like in the 1960s, how you had to repress everything and bury it. And then things get twisted out of shape and you start behaving very strangely.’


‘Norman went to him. Jeremy didn’t go to Norman. Norman went and sought out Jeremy, and apparently had already – this is not in the film but is in the book – been telling people in the village he was living in that he’d had a relationship with Jeremy Thorpe. So there was a fantasy about Jeremy Thorpe that had bloomed in his mind before anything had happened.’

d0160581_19120665.jpg

Whishaw says that the #MeToo movement was just beginning as they were filming, but although the echoes of those power dynamics are evident in the film, the actor says it was not an issue that they discussed. ‘My feeling was that in many ways these two people entered into this relationship quite equally and knowingly. And I think they somehow met their match in each other. I didn’t view Norman as a victim of this older man. I felt like he knew what he was doing.’

As a young actor, Whishaw says he never experienced sexual harassment, although, he adds, ‘I know other people who have – mainly women. But until [the post- Weinstein revolt] happened, there was a sense that this is just the way the world goes, this is the nature of things. There was a huge fury, but a kind of shrug of the shoulders. And now it’s become this revolution, which is brilliant in many ways.’

*****

Another aspect of A Very English Scandal, implicit rather than laboured, is the role of class. There is a social divide between Thorpe and Scott, but it’s one that their sexuality cuts across. ‘It’s definitely something that was there,’ agrees Whishaw, ‘and something that Norman was aware of.’

He says that he’s encountered the same social divisions in the theatre. ‘But I’m a bit like Norman. I think he has invented a persona for himself that means he can be quite fluid in class terms.I would say I sort of feel the same. In the theatre you meet people from every background. You have a choice of whether you want to view everything through the lens of class and I choose not to. It’s not the first thing I think about with people.’


*****

To say that Whishaw has never looked back since Hamlet would be more than usually true. ‘At the end of the evening on stage, at the end of the shoot, it’s gone. I never think about it ever again. It’s all wiped,’ he says. He claims to remember very little of the performances he’s given. That can’t be said of his many admirers. Whether it’s playing the boffin Q in James Bond films, John Keats in Bright Star or the intrepid Freddie in the TV series The Hour, Whishaw always quietly leaves his imprint on a part.

His next acting job, he says, is playing Uriah Heep in Armando Iannucci’s film version of David Copperfield. He’s thrilled by the prospect, not least because he loved Iannucci’s Death of Stalin.


Given that he is so adept at placing himself within a wide range of characters, I wondered if he felt that his sexuality helped him to get under the skin of Scott. ‘I’ve thought about this a lot. When I really reflect on it, I don’t think it does. What I suppose I mean is that just because a character is gay and I am gay, doesn’t mean that there’s going to be automatically a greater connection than with a character that was straight or whatever else. Acting for me is not autobiography.’



d0160581_19141761.png

Nor is it impersonation, but he says he did meet Scott at a lunch arranged by Frears and ‘got a feeling of him’. As he is plays Scott as a younger man, Whishaw was not worried about the dangers of mimicry after coming face to face with his subject. In the film, the character of Bessell describes Scott as one of the bravest men in England. What was Whishaw’s impression?

‘I think he’s someone who’s really free,’ he says, knitting his eyebrows in thought. ‘He’s living his life the way he wants to live it. He’s flirty and sort of funny and quite biting about people, but attractive, youthful. He didn’t seem like a 70-something-year-old.’



Scott now lives in an old farmhouse on Dartmoor with eight dogs. He has a long-term male partner, an artist, who is resentful of how Scott was disbelieved and hounded. Scott told Whishaw that he felt his life had been blighted by Thorpe, and believes that the Establishment conspired to protect one of its own.

Whishaw and Frears asked him if he was ever in love with Thorpe. ‘He said no, he’d never had any feelings. But I think he is – and I would say this to his face – I think he’s the kind of person who on one day might say one thing and on another day might give you another kind of story, depending on how he’s feeling and what’s going on.’

So not an entirely reliable narrator. But then Scott’s life has not been an easy one. He went on to have two children and an ex-wife who committed suicide.


d0160581_19125239.png

Sir Joseph Cantley cast aspersions on the prosecution witnesses and commended Thorpe’s unblemished career and character. He described Scott in his summing up as, ‘A hysterical, warped personality, accomplished sponger and very skilful at exciting and exploiting sympathy… He is a crook. He is a fraud. He is a sponger. He is a whiner. He is a parasite.’

It remains Whishaw’s firm belief that no one should ever be forced to divulge their sexuality. ‘People talk like you owe it to the cause, which I don’t think anyone does. It’s not anyone’s business. And it’s no one’s place to judge anyone else on how they deal with it.’ But all the same, he can see why Scott wanted to ‘out’ Thorpe. And what’s more he can also see, and believes the film shows, ‘why someone might be driven to kill, insane as that sounds’.


More than anything, Whishaw sees the story as a judgment on the period rather than the people. At its heart, he suggests, was a love that, in another age, might have flourished. ‘Because of when they lived, all that energy that might have gone into the relationship went into destroying each other. I see it as a love that was warped by the pressures of the time.’

That may be a romantic reading of two incompatibly difficult people – one highly ambitious, the other highly strung – but it probably also points to an abiding truth. After you’ve got through all the shock and scandal and mad behaviour, what’s left is two men who were locked in a corrosive embrace for almost two decades.

How did you negotiate the kissing with Ben?

“No negotiation at all. We just went at it. I got - what do they call it? - ‘pash rash’ from his beard. But Ben is a very brilliant actor, and don’t forget we worked together before because he was my wife in Cloud Atlas [laughs]. He’s remarkably un-luvvie for a top actor. I loved him. One always says in these interviews that one loves one’s co-star, but I do love Ben, actually.”

Film " A Muse” ☆ Tacita Dean at The Fruitmarket Gallery  

Tacita Dean
7 July – 30 September 2018
d0160581_00075727.jpg
The person and personage of the actor re-emerges in the three small films, all filmed in 2017, and all using Dean’s pioneering technique of masking film so that it may be run several times through the camera, collaging together scenes shot completely separately to appear as one unified film.  A Muse, shown here for the first time, shows actor Ben Whishaw calling over space and time to the poet, essayist and professor of Classics, Anne Carson.

"His Picture in Little"

d0160581_12462991.jpg
Three great actors appear on a screen not much bigger than a smartphone in a small, dark room of the National Portrait Gallery. Ben Whishaw is filmed in summer sunshine, a young man dreaming, reading, or waiting for some offstage presence. David Warner shifts in his seat, a mysterious interior monologue played out in his magnificently senatorial features. Stephen Dillane retreats from the camera, or turns directly into it with all the intimacy of an impending soliloquy. Each has been a famous Hamlet in his time – but what part are they playing now?

A trio of Hamlets came face to face with their miniature film portraits ahead of a show by artist Tacita Dean.

Ben Whishaw, Stephen Dillane and David Warner, who have all played Shakespeare’s prince, feature in His Picture In Little, which will be shown on a continuous loop at the National Portrait Gallery from tomorrow until May 28.

Dean filmed the trio separately and cut the clips together into the 15-and-a-half minute piece, named after a line from the play.

They met at the gallery yesterday to watch the film for the first time. Whishaw, 37, played Hamlet at the Old Vic in 2004.

Evening Standard 2018.03.14

























d0160581_06351069.jpg



“For His Picture in Little (2017), a 35 mm anamorphic film optically reduced to a 16 mm spherical format and displayed amongst the national Gallery’s miniatures, Dean recorded three actors in different parts of the world – Dillane, David Warner and Ben Whishaw – on the same reels. each plays his own part without being able to see what the other actors are doing, their occasional and accidental synchrony epitomizing the crucial ‘beauty of the unintended thing’ that Dean seeks out and hopes to communicate in all of her work. ”

His Picture in Little will be displayed in National Portrait Gallery from 15 March to 28 May.










nicholascullinan instagram
Here's one of the catalogue covers for Tacita Dean's forthcoming exhibition with the NPG/NG/RA. These are stills from a new film Tacita has made especially for and in response to the NPG -
'His Picture in Little'. Borrowing its title from a line in Shakespeare's 'Hamlet', the film depicts three actors of different generations -
Ben Whishaw, Stephen Dillane and David Warner - all of whom have played the Danish prince. When Tacita and I began talking about this project three years ago and spending time in the NPG's galleries, we got excited about our collection of Elizabethan and Jacobean portrait miniatures, and so this film is miniature in scale (the first ever, I believe) and will be shown alongside a group of works by Nicholas Hilliard, Isaac Oliver and portraits of writers such as Shakespeare and John Donne. Can't wait.

舞台 ”ジュリアス・シーザー” の感想

感想を書いての感想:
今回の舞台は、ストールで観るか、ギャラリーで観るかで大きな体感の違いがあったと思う。

ここ数年の(いや、この21世紀の)私の中で、セリフ劇というものへの疑問と抵抗感が否めないという問題も孕む。
(グレアム・ノートンもよく番組で、「舞台が好きじゃない」発言をしているのを聞く。米ドラマ『ニュースルーム』でも、イギリス人女性プロデューサー、ケンブリッジ大出のマクヘールが、「ナショナル・シアターに芝居を観に行ったが、よく眠れた」というようなセリフが出てきた。)
テレビも何も娯楽がなかった頃、観劇者は、”オーディエンス”と呼ばれ、”役者の台詞を耳で聴く者”という意味で、それを聴くために一日を劇場で過ごそうと出かけたシェイクスピアの16世紀と21世紀の今の状況の違いを充分考慮に入れた革新的な演出にしないと観るのが辛いのだ。シェイクスピアが伝えたかったことを別の形であぶり出して・・・・。

わたくし、20代前半に映画にかぶれ、後半には、演劇に通うようになり日本の大概の名の知れた劇団の舞台は見尽くし、ストレートプレイよりも、モダンバレエ、ダンス~パフォーミング・アーツへと傾倒。(その頃、モーリス・ベジャール、ピナ・バウシュも流行っていた。)日本では、大野一雄、勅使川原三郎を観るようになっていた。

どちらかと言えば、映像派で、タルコフスキーのあぶり出すような精神性を追いかけるのが好きだった。
ロシア文学の匂いがするニキータ・ミハルコフもよく観た。ロシアの大地も感じたかった。
活字も、私は小説よりは詩が好き。音楽も好き。絵画も好き。感覚派。

そして、ここ数年は、能の舞台に惹かれている。

数年前に観た、ギリシャ叙事詩『オデュッセイア』からのギリシャ人演出家ミハイル・マルマリノス演出、梅若玄祥シテの能『ネキアー冥府行』もあの長い冗漫な叙事詩を1時間の中に凝縮。エッセンスのあぶり出しと言ってもいい。

ベルギー人演出家イヴォ・ヴァン・ホーヴェも、能から多分に影響を受けていて、ピナ・バウシュのタンツ・テアター(ダンス演劇)に匹敵する、大胆・ラディカルな翻案、演出、舞台美術で、テーマをあぶり出しにしている気がする。3作しか観ておらず、シェイクスピアものは観ていないので何とも言えないが、あの長さ、冗漫さをどう料理するのかぜひ観てみたい。

なので、ベンが出ている云々よりもさきに、私がこの21世紀にシェイクスピアを観ること自体に無理があるのだ。

今回も、あぶり出し式にしないと、どんなに奇抜な装置を使っても、セリフをそのまま話す以上、冗漫さは避けられず、長ゼリフのところだけ、舞台上にいきなり、活字がたくさん並んだ本のページが浮かんでいるように見え、(特にヘタな)役者は間違わないように言うのに終始して、せっかくの生のセンセーションが消えてしまう。よっぽどの生のインタープリテーション力がないと・・・

ベンは、『ハムレット』『パフューム』の頃は、それがあったのだけど、場数を踏めば踏むほど、真面目な作品なら作品ほど、それが薄れ、サラリーマンのように無難な演技になって行ってしまう。(もちろん、彼も作品、作品で頑張ってはいるのだけれど・・・)。かなりの力の演出家に出会わないと、そのまだ内奥の潜在的なベンの原石が磨かれて輝かせないのだ。

(それどころか、ベンの特異さと演技力だけに頼った若い監督などの映画にも引っ張り出されたりで・・・)

舞台ならイヴォかトレヴァー・ナン。映画では、トム・ティクヴァ。かなあ。も一回シャープに磨いてくれるのは・・・

というのが、根っこの根っこの本音。

かな・・・・。今。

タチタ・ディーン "His Picture in Little" のポストカード ☆

Tacita Dean invites us to slow down in her trio of London exhibitions
 

Upstairs in the permanent collection and flanked by cases of Elizabethan miniatures and portraits of Shakespeare and John Donne is a tiny miracle of a film, not much bigger than a smartphone. The title, His Picture in Little, is taken from Hamlet and it portrays three actors who have played the role over three different generations: Ben Whishaw, Stephen Dillane and David Warner.

They don’t do much, just sit, loll and look, but their presence is immediate and intimate – especially when you discover that, although they can appear in the same frame, they were never physically together.

Using the same masking system that she used in her giant film for Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall in 2011, Dean shot different sections of the same 35mm frame in different countries and at different times. Coexisting in the celluloid, the trio are compellingly portrayed just being – or perhaps acting – themselves

Ben Whishaw as Hamlet, 2004   pohoto by Derry Moore

"My experiences were not dramatic. No walking around the block. And everyone was surprisingly lovely. I hadn’t anticipated that they would be, but they were."

"It’s hard to have a conversation with people you’ve known your whole life about a very intimate thing. It’s massively weighted with all sorts of stuff, whatever the wider world is saying… It’s an intimate and private and difficult conversation for most people."

ソープ事件 - Wikipedia よりピーター・ベッセル(Alex Jennings 演じる)の部分を一部抜粋

党で最も有名な人物(ジェレミー・ソープ)に奉仕したいと渇望していたベッセルは、1965年4月にダブリンへ飛んだ。彼はノーマン・ジョシフ(ノーマン・スコット)が、同情に満ちたイエズス会の聖職者、スウィートマン神父の助言を得ていると知る。スウィートマン神父は、少なくともジョシフの主張の一部は本当なのだろうと信じており、ベッセルに対し、なぜこの一件に対処するためにロンドンから飛んできたのか逆に尋ねた。ベッセルはジョシフに対し、公人を脅迫しようとするとどうなるか警告したが、それ以上に懐柔的な語り口で、失くした鞄と保険カードについて何とかしてやると請け合った。彼はまた、アメリカで騎手の職が得られる可能性についても仄めかした。ベッセルの仲裁は問題を封じ込めたかに見え、さらにジョシフの鞄はこの直後に持ち主の手に返ったが、ジョシフによれば、ソープに関係した手紙は全て除かれていたという。続く2年間のほとんどを、ジョシフは様々な職に就こうとしながらアイルランドで穏やかに過ごすが、中には男子修道院に入っていた時期もあった。
この頃、ジョシフは自身の名前を、正式に「スコット」と変えている。

d0160581_00115188.jpg


1967年4月、スコットはアイルランドからベッセルに手紙を書き、アメリカで新生活が始められるよう、新しい名前でのパスポートを得る助けをしてほしいと述べた。7月に書かれた、前向きさが少し失われた2通目の手紙では、スコットはイングランドに帰っており、医療費やその他の借金で再び窮状に陥っていることが述べられている。彼は保険カードを失くしたせいで、給付金を請求することもできなくなっていた。この時までに、ソープはジョー・グリモンドから自由党党首の座を引き継いでいた。スコットの喫緊の問題を解決し、新しい党首に対する彼の激しい非難が再燃するのを防ぐため、表面上は国民保険の給付金を肩代わりするという形で、ベッセルはスコットに週5〜10ポンド(2015年の82から164ポンドに相当)の「賄賂」を渡し始めた。ベッセルはスコットの新しいパスポートも工面してやったが、この時までにスコットはアメリカ行きを取り止め、モデルとしてキャリアを築こうと望んでいた。彼はモデル業を始める資金としてベッセルに200ポンド(2015年の3,274ポンドに相当)をねだり、ベッセルも1度は断ったものの、今年はこれ以上要求しないという言質を取った上で、1968年5月に75ポンド(2015年の1,173ポンドに相当)を渡している

The MP(Jeremy Thorpe) was disgraced and forced to resign in 1979. He died three years ago at the age of 85.

Meanwhile, his former lover retreated to Ireland to escape the glare of publicity.

But now Ben has tracked down and met Norman.

The pair spoke at length, a move that seems to indicate Norman’s support for the BBC show, which is currently being filmed and is expected to air next year.


A TV insider said: “Ben is the kind of actor who really likes to get under the skin of a character, so the natural thing to do was to speak to Norman.


“He really wanted to get his side of his amazing story.”

d0160581_06364718.jpg

Synopsis:

In 1979, former Member of Parliament, Jeremy Thorpe, stood trial over accusations that he hired a hitman to kill his alleged ex-lover, Norman Scott. A Very English Scandal chronicles Thorpe's early, secretive love life, at a time when sexual activity between men was illegal, and his subsequent public exposure. The novel also details Thorpe's trial and eventual acquittal.

THE HOLY GHOST ZONE


Youthful Stephanie enters the Holy Ghost Zone, while her boyfriend, Emmanuel, receives unlikely guidance as he prepares to enter the wilderness. A mixture of rapture and disenchantment, THE HOLY GHOST ZONE follows the inner experiences of two believers at opposite ends of the spiritual spectrum.



FROM ACTOR/PRODUCER BEN WHISHAW


For as long as I can remember I have dreamed of bringing together a small group of friends to make work that is personal and idiosyncratic and experimental, where we feel free to look at the things that interest us, however peculiar or difficult. So I'm delighted that this longing is finally taking shape in the form of THE HOLY GHOST ZONE.


Mark’s script is a gem. It does the thing I love films to do : it takes me into a world. A funny, strange, unfathomable little world. I’m very excited to be involved in producing the film as well as acting in it.


Ben x





FROM WRITER/DIRECTOR/COMPOSER MARK BRADSHAW


I left the church over 15 years ago, but I continue to look back. With THE HOLY GHOST ZONE, I intend to tell a tale both side-splitting and soul-shaking, a tale that playfully and perceptively explores concepts of belief and transformation.


This will be my first time directing a film of this sort, a challenge I’m looking forward to as I am passionate about this story and believe many will relate to its central themes.

We have assembled a talented and dedicated volunteer cast and crew. Most of the expense is in equipment hire, locations, accommodation and crew costs.


Please consider pledging and please do share our project with your friends and circles!

We can't wait to make this film with your help!

Thank you for your support!

長年、温めていた作品が形になるのですね。(ずっと前に「教会についてあるストーリーを持っている」と言っていましたものね。でも、自分は書く人間ではないことを認めざるを得ず、誰か書くのを助ける人が必要だと・・・)パートナーのマークと完成にこぎ着けたのですね。

その念願がかなうせいか、自分のことを自分で決められる嬉しさか、ベン、子どものような笑顔(照れもある?)で支援者を募っていますね。。。


どうしてこんなに、急に話が決まったのかと思ったら、出演者の Fehinte Balogunさんや、Emma D'Arcy さんって、今 AGAINST で、一緒に舞台に立っている人たち。脚本ができていたのなら、出演者としての話が早かったのね。。。

"Norma Jeane Baker of Troy" by Anne Carson, directing by Katie Mitchell in 2019, NY

Hudson Yards arts center The Shed announces first commissions and reveals interior renderings
The Shed, New York City’s first arts center dedicated to commissioning, producing, and presenting new work across the performing arts, visual arts, and popular culture, has unveiled the first seven commissions for its 2019 inaugural season.

“Norma Jeane Baker of Troy,” a reinvention of Euripides’ “Helen” by poet Anne Carson, starring Ben Whishaw and Renée Fleming.

6sgft.com

d0160581_15422812.jpg

A newly commissioned piece by Ms. Carson entitled “Norma Jeane Baker of Troy,” based on Euripides’ “Helen,” will be shown in the venue’s more intimate theater space. (The play draws a line between Helen and Marilyn Monroe, who was baptized as Norma Jeane Baker.)

“I asked Ann, ‘Would you ever consider writing a dramatic monologue for a performer?’” Mr. Poots recalled. “Within six to nine months, she sent me the first draft and said: ‘I’ve written this for Ben Whishaw. And he’ll do it.’” Mr. Whishaw will perform it with Ms. Fleming.

nytimes.com

























On the sixth floor, Canadian poet Anne Carson is working on a melologue (partly spoken, partly sung) performance piece called “Norma Jeane Baker of Troy,” connecting Marilyn Monroe to Euripides’ Greek tragedy, “Helen.” Actor Ben Whishaw will present it, with soprano Renée Fleming singing. The production will be staged by theater/opera director Katie Mitchell, with music by Paul Clark.

Describing her melologue, Carson said: “I think most of you know the conventional myth of Helen of Troy. Well according to Euripedes, that was fake news… The story is a subversion of a myth.”
