    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 01/03/2018

    » Second time's a charm for Fullfat Theatre at Warehouse 30. The company returns to the space that had dwarfed and overwhelmed the troupe's first play [Co/exist] with its sheer size and uninsulated high ceiling. With the new play, Taxiradio, playwright-director and Fullfat co-founder Nophand Boonyai has successfully tamed the rugged space to achieve not only live performance suitability, but also intimacy.

    Rips and tears, black and blue

    Life, Pimrapee Thungkasemvathana, Published on 28/01/2015

    » At a New Year's party at CentralWorld, Soopakorn Srisakul took a picture of his friend as she lifted her arm, revealing a tear in her old black tank top. He wanted to frame her tight-fisted nature — her unwillingness to buy a new shirt — but he unintentionally captured something else: the resulting scar from breast implants that peeked through the hole. Soopakorn's arm also appears in the photograph, pushing her hand and hair aside to reveal a secret.

    » For the year-end festivity, I treated myself to the Opera Siam production of Mozart's “Die Zauberflöte”, “The Magic Flute”, directed by Somtow Sucharitkul, at the Thailand Cultural Center, which took place at three evenings before the new year. The Siam Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Trisdee Na Patalung provided its usual excellent support for the performers: a mix of Thai and International. Support was provided by a number of local organisations, with the BMA sponsoring the last performance, providing free tickets for senior citizens - and not only Thai.

    Taking down The ‘Third World’

    Life, Pimrapee Thungkasemvathana, Published on 03/09/2014

    » In 1974, Mao Zedong decided China was part of the Third World, not the Second World as categorised by the Communist block. Mao's idea of the Third World deviated from Cold War-era political ideologies and discounted the history of colonialism and imperialism. His "Third World" was a band of non-aligned nations falling behind those which were more rich and powerful — the US and Soviet Union in the First World; Japan, Canada, Australia and the rest of Europe in the Second World.

    The future, in reverse

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 08/06/2016

    » On the surface, artist Apichatpong Weerasethakul's video of a night journey through a temple doesn't seem to be in dialogue with photographs of Sakhalin island by Japanese Tomoko Yoneda.

Weiss and David Benioff even roped him into a season four cameo as the blacksmith who reforges Ned Starks's Ice into the iconic swords, Oathkeeper and Widow.
