Jam Factory talk features 'edgy' playwright

Internationally acclaimed Japanese playwright/director Toshiki Okada and SEA Write Award winner Uthis Haemamool will be the speakers for a talk and discussion on literature and theatre at Jam Factory, Charoen Nakhon Road, this Saturday from 4pm to 6pm.

Organised by the Japan Foundation in collaboration with Precog and Candide Books, the event marks the publication of the Thai version of Okada's novel The End Of The Special Time We Were Allowed (2007). The Thai translation is by Matana Jaturasangpairoj. Okada's debut novel is enthusiastically praised by the Japanese Nobel laureate in literature, Kenzaburo Oe, and won the second Oe Kenzaburo Award in 2008.

Okada has made a name for himself as a playwright/theatre director not only in Japan but also internationally even before his debut as an author, and founding and directing his own theatre troupe, Chelfitsch, since late 1990s.

His award-winning play Five Days In March was staged in Bangkok in 2010 at Patravadi Theatre. Known for being edgy, Okada and Chelfitsch are at the forefront of media attention in the international theatre scene. Invited to make a dialogue and discussion with Okada will be Thai author Uthis whose third novel, Lab Lae, Khaeng Khoi (The Brotherhood of Kaeng Khoi), earned him the Seven Book Awards and the SEA Write Award in 2009. He has recently become an editor in chief of two contemporary Thai literary magazines — Writer Magazine and Prakod.

The discussion will be in Thai and Japanese with interpretations. There is no admission fee but advance registration is recommended.
