    » Tomorrow and on Thursday, Opera Siam's 17th season will close with two performances of one of the "top 10" operas, performed over 2,000 times around the world this year alone, Madame Butterfly. It's a tear-jerker, a relentlessly romantic piece full of famous melodies and a can't-lose formulaic plot: boy meets girl, boy dumps girl, girl kills herself.

    A Mad look at the classics

    Life, Apipar Norapoompipat, Published on 16/05/2018

    » Madsaki's artworks are stupid. Stupid of course, in the best cackle-inducing way possible. In his latest solo exhibition "Combination Platter" (situated on the ground floor of Ploenchit's Central Embassy), Leonardo da Vinci's 16th-century masterpiece Salvador Mundi is now a beady-eyed Jesus. And Picasso's US$155 million (4.9 billion baht) Le Rêve -- instead of a tranquil woman napping peacefully on a sofa, she now has giant black button eyes and a dumb smile to match. Honestly, they're even more entertaining to look at than the originals.

    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

    » In Uthis Haemamool's new novel, the protagonist's erotic adventure runs parallel to Thailand's political education. 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.
