Pichet Klunchun is the leading contemporary dance artist in Thailand.
Pichet Klunchun has been studying classical Thai dance since he was a child. He bases this production on the classical Thai masked dance Khon, which he learned from Chaiyot Khummanee, one of the foremost Khon masters in Thailand. Now he takes away the Khon dance’s face masks and highly decorated costumes and deconstructs the 700-year-old system. The result is a production in which tradition and innovation come together in a beautiful and unforgettable commentary on what dance is and can be.
