《稻神纪》是一部关于沙巴神话 Huminodun 的短剧。三位演员将通过说书、形体表演、现场说唱的方式呈现沙巴神话里的稻神 Huminodun,如何牺牲自己来拯救面临干旱、饥荒的人们,从而也衍生出流传多年的丰收节庆典。

“The Huminodun’s Sacrifice” is a new short play premiering at YSDAF 2023 about the Huminodun of Sabah which combines storytelling, physical performance and music. It is based on a mythical character in Dusun legend called Huminodun who sacrificed herself to save her people from famine and ensured a bountiful harvest for the tribe. This paved the way for the Harvest Festival celebrations that have been celebrated for generations.

Performed in Mandarin.
