Their performing arts programme is a solid one. Hopefully, this will become another platform for quality theatre in the future.

    Entertaining a dark soul

    Life, Ariane Kupferman-Sutthavong, Published on 15/11/2017

    » Writer Franz Kafka's sombre, absurd, yet resolutely modern universe has long been a source of inspiration for filmmakers; his novels and short stories having provided the basis for several film adaptations, from Orson Welles' critically-acclaimed The Trial to lesser-known movies such as Michael Haneke's The Castle. As part of "Unfolding Kafka Festival 2017", an expert explains how Kafka's works continue to fascinate readers and audiences, in large part due to the Czech writer's sharp intuition and "prophetic" perception of modern-day woes.

    Sex, truth & politics

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 11/09/2017

A man's carnal quests and sexual outbursts become, in a way, an allegory of a larger social context as the country goes through three coups d'etat and several convulsive protests in the past 25 years. The awakening of the loin as a metaphor for political orgasm, physical penetration as an analogy for abuses of power -- <i>Rang Haeng Pratana</i> (Silhouette Of Desire) is a novel that, Uthis admits, presents him with many risks as a writer.
