Official description

Contemporary dance master Pichet Klunchun will lead the audience through profound traditions relating to Thai identity and culture with a performance that is both piquant and socially relevant.

There will be 14 performances on selected weekdays and weekends between June 20 and Aug 24 at 100 Tonson Gallery.

Pichet is one of the most talented and critically celebrated multi-platform artists of the Thai contemporary art scene. He synthesises traditional Thai dance theory with contemporary modes of interpretation and expression, thereby allowing audiences to enter into his thought processes and creative concepts.

After receiving his degree in Thai classical dance at Chulalongkorn University, Pichet pursued theatre as a dancer and choreographer for high-profile occasions.

Lately, he has participated in several intercultural performing arts programmes as a Thai representative and as an international dancer-choreographer in Asia and Europe, and has won several awards locally and internationally.
