From its ticket price to its themes, Tanachon Chandruang's play is all about vagary and unpredictability

- +

Ticket prices for Tanachon Chandruang’s new play The Snow Doesn’t Fall On The Equator at Democrazy Theatre Studio may vary — a “donation according to your capacity” is the only standard. And though some might say this devalues the play, Tanachon said art cannot be evaluated, and the production should be judged by its quality, not by how much a ticket costs. 

A great-grandson of Thai classical maestro Luang Pradit Phairoh (Sorn Silapabanleng), it comes as no surprise that the 29-year-old has been involved in theatre since he was young, composing music, scriptwriting and directing. He now teaches acting and scriptwriting.

Tanachon is also involved with the Moradokmai Community Theatre , an educational theatre troupe founded by his father, and has travelled to many countries, including India, Nepal, Austria, Germany, Brazil and the US.
