Shi Xiaming is a 98 year old graduate of Kunqu Opera class of Jiangsu Provincial theater school. He is a Gongjin student. He has studied under Shi Xiaomei, Qian Zhenrong, Wang Bin, Yue Meiti and other Kunqu artists. He is good at performing "Jingmeng · Shihua · Jiaohua", "Tinghui", "qintiao · Qianshi", "bailuoshan" and so on;
In 2006, Jiangsu Kunju theater rearranged the drama "1699 Peach Blossom Fan", directed by Tian Qinxin, a famous drama director, and Shi Xiaming was selected to play the leading role Hou Fangyu. Since then, he has also starred in Nanke dream, a dream of Red Mansions, yingmei'an Yiyu: Dong Xiaowan, etc.
He has won the "outstanding young actor performance award" of the fourth China Kunqu Opera Festival, the "excellent performance award" of the Ninth China Kunqu Opera Festival, the 23rd Shanghai Magnolia Drama Performance Art Award, the first Beijing Kunming Art Purple Gold Award · performance award, and the first "Huang Xiaoci Drama Award" on November 14, 2017.
In 1998, Shi Xiaming, who was still in the sixth grade of primary school in Suzhou at that time, was caught by the "star scout" of Kunqu Opera who came to recruit new people. This "star scout" is Hu JinFang, an old artist of Jiangsu Kunju Opera Theater. Later, due to his father's obstruction, Shi Xiaming gave up the admission opportunity. The next year, when Shi Xiaming was admitted to Suzhou No.1 middle school, teacher Hu JinFang came here again. "Teacher Hu tried his best to do his father's work and wanted to dig me up. This time, his father agreed." This year, Shi Xiaming became a student of Kunqu section of Jiangsu opera school. In these four years, from not knowing Kunqu Opera at all to gradually falling in love with Kunqu Opera, Shi Xiaming found that he not only had affinity with Kunqu Opera, but also had a tacit understanding, "it's a slow drama, one sing three sighs, one word can drag four beats, my character is also so slow, I don't worry about anything." After graduating from the theater school, Shi Xiaming entered Jiangsu Kunju theater and became the fourth generation actor of the theater.
They say, "one minute on stage, ten years off." The beautiful appearance on the stage, the elegant figure, a raise of hands and a look up, all condense the painstaking work of the actors. "I broke my leg when I was studying." In a second grade practice, Shi Xiaming accidentally broke his leg in a somersault. Such a blow did not extinguish his love for Kunqu Opera. After recovering from his leg injury, Shi Xiaming stepped up his study and quickly made up for the lessons he had taken.
An opportunity not long after he joined the industry made him stand out quickly. In 2006, Jiangsu Kunqu Opera Theater rearranged the big play "1699 Peach Blossom Fan", directed by Tian Qinxin, a famous drama director. Shi Xiaming was selected to play the leading role Hou Fangyu when he was 21 years old. The premiere was a great success. "Without the youth version of Peach Blossom Fan, there would be no me now." It is the new version of peach blossom fan that boldly uses young and beautiful actors of the younger generation to activate the long depressed Kunqu market.
Born in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province in 1985, he is the fourth generation young actor of Jiangsu Kunju Opera Academy. He graduated from Kunju Opera Department of Jiangsu drama school in 2005, specializing in towel making. He studied under Shi Xiaomei, Yue Meiti, Qian Zhenrong, Wang Bin, Cheng Min and other teachers. After graduation, he entered Jiangsu Kunju Opera Academy. She is handsome in appearance, elegant in temperament, beautiful in voice and mellow in singing.
In 2011, Shi Xiaming paid homage to Shi Xiaomei, a famous Kunqu performing artist. "Whether traditional or innovative, old opera is our root. We are constantly rehearsing big plays, and sometimes it's a little frivolous. We hate that our tradition is not enough. " The busiest student, forced himself by the special performance system of Shengkun, has won such plays as Bai Luoshan and peach blossom fan by Shi Xiaomei. "At my age, I'm just a sponge, constantly absorbing water and learning."
1699 Peach Blossom Fan
In the play, Shi Xiaming is Hou Fangyu. He is handsome, romantic, well-trained and infatuated. Gifted scholars and beautiful women are like crying and complaining. Shi Xiaming, who is just 20 years old, is young. Usually, like his peers, he likes to play games, listen to music and surf the Internet. He likes Lin Junjie and Tao Zhe and plays cards with his friends in his spare time. When rehearsing, he will be a little funny. "Once, I swapped roles with Huadan. I played Huadan and she played Xiaosheng, which made everyone present happy." Recalling these pranks, Shi Xiaming smiles with pride. Although sometimes Shi Xiaming is a bit naughty, his character is not extroverted, and most of the time he has the temperament of Xiaosheng. Steady, slightly precocious, is his own evaluation. "Maybe it's a little bit bigger and more mature than people of the same age."
The performance of 1699 peach blossom fan has come to an end, and Shi Xiaming is also relieved. However, he is not at leisure. He often goes to different theaters and music clubs to perform, study and communicate. "Only by constantly learning from our predecessors can we make continuous progress. In the future, if possible, I will continue to study in an art school. " "In the course of my growing up, I want to thank my parents, but also those teachers who helped and guided me. Without you, I would not be today."
It took four months to rehearse "1699 Peach Blossom Fan". In these four months, Shi Xiaming and his colleagues constantly ponder the characters' psychology. Through the co teaching of literature teachers and drama teachers, they strive to create a full-bodied character with both form and spirit. Speaking of the most difficult thing in the process of filming, Shi Xia Ming scratched his head and said shyly, "maybe it's creating characters! At the beginning, there was a lot of pressure, because among the main actors, maybe I was a little weaker. When rehearsing, the director was not worried about anyone, just worried about me. "
Beikun dream of Red Mansions
From the end of February to the middle of March 2015, there was the "beikun performance week" held by Shanghai Oriental Art Center in the south. There were three big plays in beikun, with Shi Xiaming playing the second role - "a dream of Red Mansions" and the newly created big play "Ying Mei An Yi Yu Dong Xiaowan". Among the seven Kunqu troupes in China, Jiangsu Kunqu Opera Theater has the largest number of performances per year, reaching more than 600. Shi Xiaming, the new generation of Kunqu Opera idol, has about 150 performances, almost reaching the annual performance volume of some Kunqu troupes.
After Shi Xiaming won the role of Jia Baoyu in the national draft of Red Mansions, beikun had a special liking for him. He was invited to play the No.1 role in the new drama Dong Xiaowan. Different types of characters enrich Shi's performance experience. The style of beikun is different from that of Shengkun, which is famous for the style of Nankun. Shi Xiaming, the "advanced student" of beikun, absorbs all kinds of nutrition. This is the unique experience of his contemporaries. "Many of beikun's explorations are bold and often criticized, but I think we should look at them dialectically. For example, the choreography, the beauty of dance, the use of symphony and so on, the key lies in the degree At the moment, Shi Xiaming is in a bad mood
There are seven dramas on the show: 1699 peach blossom fan, Peony Pavilion, and bailuo shirt Among the post-80s students, there is no second one in China. His teachers look up to him for his early fame and so many performance opportunities.
"Our opportunities are great!" Kunqu opera has been in the doldrums for decades. After it was listed as a world heritage by the United Nations, it ushered in a recovery. Shi Xiaming and his classmates Shan Wen just graduated and started their career. With the support of the youth team from Shengkun, this group of actors got on the express train. "Kunqu Opera is still on the brink of crisis. In fact, we young actors are very worried. " Shi Xiaming said that Kunqu Opera needs a market too much. If there is no market, Kunqu opera will die. In the museum, there are only video materials, no one plays, so it's a complete heritage. But now we don't have much time to pass on. "
Inheritance version of bailuo shirt
Zhou Chuanying, the "biographer", passed on the marriage to Shi Xiaomei. Unfortunately, before the rehearsal, Mr. Zhou died. Shi Xiaomei told her husband and famous screenwriter Zhang Hong that "seeing the appearance" is her heart knot and unfulfilled wish. Can she extend it to both ends and make up a big play? Therefore, this classic "Bai Luo Shan" is also Shi Xiaomei's unique secret.
In 2011, Shi Xiaomei passed the play on to Shi Xiaming and officially accepted him as an apprentice. In that year, he also performed the full version for the first time.
Xu Jizu, the hero of the play, is totally different from Liu Mengmei and Zhang Sheng. Although he is also a scholar and handsome, he hardly has the ability to love each other. He went to the exam wholeheartedly, met an old woman, gave him a white shirt, and asked him to help find his son and grandson who had been missing for 18 years. As a matter of fact, Xiao Xu worked hard to become an official. When he solved the case, he found that his adoptive father, who had raised him for 18 years, was the enemy of his father. On the one hand, it's the kindness of nurturing, on the other hand, it's the Revenge of Killing Father, revenge, or forgiveness. How should the male Lord choose? This is the Chinese version of Hamlet. Shi Xiaming said that the best part of the play is that people watch the male owners struggle and struggle. This kind of psychological play is very rare in Kun Opera, which is used to singing and dancing, and there are a lot of dialogues, which is a bit like a drama. The audience who have seen this comment: unique style of ancient Greek tragedy.
Shi Xiaming's performance volume now reaches more than 100 per year, which is the annual performance volume of Jiangsu Province before the system reform. Can such a skinny male god born in 85 bear such a tragic role? "At the beginning, I also found it difficult to enter the role. After all, I was young. So teacher Shi's requirements for my characters' emotions are not high. She hopes that I can understand them slowly. Fortunately, after I became a father, I know more and more what kind of feelings are between father and son, which is hard to give up. " "Male god" is already the father of the child, but also two sons. He caught Shi Xiaming's eye closure in his performance of bailuoshan · Jiefu. He said that it was different from teacher Shi Xiaomei. This eye closure was a kind of vision
