Lesson 35 Choreography 舞蹈编排

Dancing is a chore sometimes. My choreographer keeps chiseling away at me, hoping to shape me into perfection. But she can’t expect chunks to just fall off. I know the rules of chivalry forbid it, but sometimes I feel like choking that chubby woman. When I hold that thought, I have to chuckle. It certainly wouldn’t be the Christian thing to do.

跳舞有时是件烦人的事。我的舞蹈编导总是不断雕琢我,一心将我塑造成完美的舞蹈家。但她总不能指望我身上的肉大块大块掉吧。我知道骑士精神的准则不会允许我这样做,但有时我真想掐死那个圆滚滚的女人。每当我有这种想法时,就忍不住咯咯地笑起来。这肯定算不上什么人道的做法。

Today, choreography is an essential component of many performing arts. Unless you’re just part of a chorus, there’s probably some dancing involved in your performance. A brief choreographic presentation can add beauty and excitement to any show.

当今,舞蹈编排已成为诸多表演艺术的重要组成部分。除非是参加合唱团的演出,你的表演就难免会有舞蹈的参与。一出简短的舞蹈表演能为任何节目增添美感和激情。

I’ve tried to make it as a dancer but it’s hard to do when you have chronic injuries. These injuries can easily turn smooth movements into choppy actions. I’ve been chopped by my share of bad review. However, it’s not completely my fault.

我努力争取当好一名舞蹈演员,但当你长期有伤痛时,就会心有而力不足了。由于这些伤痛的存在,原本顺畅的舞步很容易就走样成东倒西歪的动作。为此我曾被恶意的评论中伤过,但这并不是我的错。

If you put my injury and work history into chronological order, you’ll see that most of major injuries occurred while I was dancing hurt. In order words, the chronology shows that dancing while you have a minor injury could be a very foolish mistake. Yet, man choreographers will insist that you dance with your injury. I pleasure by using nothing but the fingers of your dominant hand.

如果我将我的受伤和工作历史按时间顺序排列,你就会发现大多数重伤都是在我带伤跳舞时发生的。换言之,这一时间表显示在伤势不重的情况下跳舞可能是一大愚蠢的错误。尽管如此,许多舞蹈编导会坚持要你带伤跳舞。于是,我创造出一种特别的密码,它让你只消动动你常用的那手上的指头就能传达你的不快了。

What I would really like to do is to choreograph other people. It would be an exciting career. But I shouldn’t think too far into the future. For the moment, I need to rest. Perhaps after a few ciders, I’ll be able to think again.

我真正想做的是为别人设计舞蹈动作,这将是个令人兴奋的职业。但我不该考虑的过于长远。现在,我需要休息。也许喝几杯苹果汁以后,我就又能进行思考了。
