SILLINESS IS GOOD
傻瓜也有傻瓜好

多數人也不想被人叫作傻瓜,不過有時侯做個傻瓜也不一定是壞事,俗語也有傻人有傻福之說。「慧敏哥」陳慧敏將於11月1日在旺角麥花臣場館舉行她的首個香港演唱會,把演唱會命名為《我們叫傻瓜演唱會2017》。究竟為甚麼自嘲傻瓜?今期Chessman Post帶大家齊齊進入陳慧敏的傻瓜世界了解多一點。

首度於香港舉行售票演唱會,自然要隆重其事,所以今次特別找來著名演唱會監製康家俊擔任創作總監,並找到RubberBand的阿偉擔任音樂總監。演唱會的主題及名字,正是出自康家俊的構思。為了在演唱會中向觀眾展示慧敏哥最真的一面,康家俊於是從她的性格出發去構思。「外界初認識慧敏時,總會覺得她性格傻傻哋、好欺負,至今新朋友仍會把她當傻瓜,有時甚至看不起她,但她內裏卻總是充滿能量。在這變幻莫測的時代裡,像她這類不怕死,也不會把自己看得很大的人,才能䇄立不倒,所以演唱會就用了『我們叫傻瓜』作為主題及名字。」康家俊說。

配合這主題為演唱會設計海報的棋人香港創作總監Aramis,對於「我們叫傻瓜」又有另一番見解。「我覺得所謂傻瓜,有時候他們只是專注於做他們喜歡的事情、為他們喜歡的事情堅持和狂熱,旁人不了解不明白,會覺得他們的付出徒勞無功,視他們為傻瓜。但正因為這種傻瓜的單純、努力,他們最終才可能獲得成功。所以在海報中我找了幾個這種傻瓜的例子,例如有運動員和一個plus-size model,再key慧敏的樣子上去,和熱愛唱歌的慧敏放在一起,突出整個主題。」

慧敏也自言其實自己有一份傻勁,從來沒有太多計算,外界看來這好像很傻,但她只是很純粹的一直走下去,所以她會在演唱會將這份傻氣表現出來,盡全力去做好這次演唱會。在拍攝演唱會主題曲《我們叫傻瓜》的MV時,便已率先體驗到她這份傻勁。其實拍攝當日正值超強颱風天鴿來臨前的一天,氣溫高達37度,但慧敏無懼酷熱天氣,與一班舞蹈員走到大坳門及清水灣取景。而拍攝現場充滿牛屎的味道,但她也沒想太多,按導演要求瞓在草地上,務求拍出靚靚效果。

正正是慧敏這份傻氣,至今吸引到一班同樣「傻瓜」的知音人。11月1日,旺角麥花臣場館,讓傻瓜們聚頭。

Most of the people usually don’t want to be called silly. Yet sometimes being silly might not be a bad thing. Chinese idiom says “silly people have their luck because of their silliness”. Vivian Chan would have her first concert held in Hong Kong on 1st November at MacPherson Stadium. The concert is named “We Are Silly”. Why would the concert named like this? Let’s dive into Vivian’s universe of silliness to find out more.

As it is the first concert held in Hong Kong for Vivian, famous producer BFSH was invited to be the concert creative director, and Wei from Rubberband is invited to be the concert music director. The whole idea and the name of the concert come from BFSH. As he wish to show the audiences the true side of Vivian through the concert, he start to construct the theme from Vivian’s own personalities. “When someone first meet Vivian, they usually think that she is kind of silly and easy target to bully. It is true till now that new friends would treat her like a fool, even despite her sometimes. But she is always the same and full of energy inside no matter what. In a rapid changing time like now, someone like her who don’t fear to challenge but not arrogant at the same time might very well be the last one standing. That’s why we use “We Are Silly” as the theme and the name of the concert.”

Aramis Yeung, Creative Director of Chessman Hong Kong, is responsible for designing the poster of the concert. He has his own opinion about silliness. “Sometimes the so called fool might actually just be someone that so focus on the thing they like to do. Their persistence and fanaticism over some particular thing is something that others won’t able to truly understand. Others might just think they are such a fool for doing so. But because of this so called silliness, these “fools” might eventually be successful. That’s why I have chosen a few examples of these “fools” like an athletic or a plus-size model, and photo-shopped to combine Vivian’s face with their body, putting them next to the Vivian Chan with guitar who loves to sing so much, to emphasis the theme of the concert.”

Vivian herself is also aware of her own silliness. She knew that others might think that she is a fool. But she think it is just because she never want to calculate too much and plays any mind games. She just want to focus on her path and chase her dream. And she would pay her greatest effort to show all the audiences the power of her silliness through the performance in the concert. Actually we could already feel her effort when shooting the MV for “We Are Silly”, the main theme song of the concert. The shooting date is actually the day right before the signal 10 Typhoon Hato arrived Hong Kong and Macau. The temperature is as high as 37℃. But Vivian still decide to continue the MV shooting with all the dancers in Tai Au Mun and Clear Water Bay. And although the location is full of the smell of cow feces, she still followed the request of the director and sleep right on the grass without any hesitation, just to make sure that the MV would looks good.

Might be it is because of Vivian’s silliness that so many fans are attracted by her. Hope to meet all you “fools” at MacPherson Stadium on 1st November!
