    New singers, oldest band

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 28/03/2019

    » The Suntaraporn Foundation has been staging musicals for seven years, and I finally made the time to go see one this past Sunday. Theatre critics in Bangkok are very aware of their annual productions, but we have largely ignored it. Perhaps it has to do with our limited definition of "contemporary theatre", and our tendency to turn our noses up at anything that feels traditional and conservative.

    Freeform art

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 01/12/2017

    » A decade ago, theatre was still seen an art form on the margin in Thailand. That is less true today. Visual art and design events are beginning to include theatre in their programmes. The new art and design event Freeform Festival has revived an abandoned school building at ACMEN Ekamai Complex with exhibitions, workshops, food trucks, plays and dance. Their performing arts programme is a solid one. Hopefully, this will become another platform for quality theatre in the future.

At times moving, at times frustratingly obscure, Thanaphon Accawatanyu's ambitious new creation makes a subtle statement about institutional violence against Thai youth and political dissidents.

    Life's agonies, magnified three-fold

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 24/08/2017

    » Theatre director Bhanbhassa Dhubthien may not be known for novel or subversive interpretations of plays, but she has always worked with good actors, from whom she draws out the kind of nuanced performances we don't often see here in Thailand. She has also worked with texts of varying degrees of difficulty and ripeness. So even when the writing fails, her actors can always steer the production from complete disaster.

    Taking Off

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 01/10/2015

    » A modern classic play, a Greek film, The Beatles and Italian operas were sources of inspiration for the young artists at the second Take Off Festival, which took place at the Thong Lor Art Space last weekend and showcased works by recent drama graduates. This year's programme proved to be even more satisfying than the last, with these creative voices surprising us at every turn. Here are the highlights:

    Tragedy in the locker room

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 07/12/2012

    » Shakespeare's Othello gets transported from Venice and Cyprus into a stuffy football team's common room _ a perfect representation of a tight-knit community. And as in any tight-knit community, things turn incestuous pretty quickly.

    Furniture comes alive

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 01/02/2012

    » The planet Earth and her strange inhabitants, a cinematic adventure of a dysfunctional family of apples, and a little girl's terrifying music lesson _ all these emerged from the confines of your standard set of a table and a chair.
