    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 07/12/2018

    ยป Thai-French dancer Phitthaya "Sun" Phaefuang grew up in Norway, where he cultivated a passion for the performing arts. After graduating from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, he came to Thailand to pursue his interests and has gained a level of recognition since, working around Asia and along side famous contemporary Thai dancer Pichet Klunchun as well as other leading artists in Asia. Leaning more towards experimental performing arts, Sun is involved in the art of voguing, a dance form born out of ball culture of LGBT community in the US. The ball scene is documented in 1991's award-winning Paris is Burning. Sun will be hosting Thailand's first ever Diversity Kiki Ball (goo.gl/ecp7BD), a gathering where people compete through dance and fashion in different categories, in hope of expanding the country's vogue scene and promoting inclusivity. The ball at the Penta nightclub will feature noted voguers in Asia and focuses on local culture. Guru chatted with Sun, who explains the dance style and the scene.
