    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 24/03/2016

    All the king's men: Naii Nai staged as The Gentlemen

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 29/01/2015

    » Unfortunately, Pichet Klunchun will not appear onstage in a reproduction of his dance performance Naii Nai which begins tomorrow at Chulalongkorn University's Sodsai Pantoomkomol Centre of Dramatic Arts. Other changes from last year's staging in Singapore with TheatreWorks include the title, which has changed to The Gentlemen, and the performance's narrative, which has been rendered more conventional.


    An eclectic mix of shows from last week

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 05/02/2015

    » This simple dance creation by Sun Tawalwongsri and Chatchanok Hemachandra may have sprung from a loose and hackneyed concept — our relationship with other human beings and our surroundings — but it succeeds in being minimal and controlled. Sun and Chatchanok are athletic dancers and move with clean precision. They are not identical, however. Sun usually has a penchant for melodrama, but here he keeps it under control. Chatchanok is more matter-of-fact when she dances but still knows how to show her vulnerability. The two have found an interesting way of incorporating pedestrian movements into their choreography; they not only dance with their arms, legs and feet but are also very expressive with their hands. For a piece about relationships, the show feels emotionally disjointed, and the dancers could have had more of a connection with each other. The most touching scene comes at the end when Sun backs away from Chatchanok as she continues to feel his imaginary form with her hands. The sense of absence and loss in that simple moment makes more of an emotional imprint than all of the other scenes combined.
