    Water off a DJ’s back

    Life, Onsiri Pravattiyagul, Published on 25/11/2014

    » It was doubtful that Rip Curl Presents Tempology 2014 could pull it off — the low-key festival clashed with four other mega-events on the same day. But the underground dance music festival definitely passed the test with flying colours.

    From the inside, out

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 18/09/2014

    » Sasapin Siriwanij stood defiant in the rain. In front of her was the shallow circular pool of Pridi Banomyong Institute courtyard, surrounded by shoes — boots, heels, flip-flops, sandals, trainers, flats, pumps. The actress was clad in a blood-red dress, her head crowned with a wig of the same shade. On top of the wig was a flimsy structure from which she slowly unfurled a scroll containing a collage of texts, in Thai and English — poems, song lyrics, official guides, government propaganda and campaigns — on beauty, especially female beauty. As she read the words, Sasapin went around the pool, placing her feet inside all the mismatched shoes. Her struggle was apparent, but it only made her actions and voice more defiant. She even fell into the pool, only to get up and continue her act until the end.

    Rock ‘n’ roll at 60

    Life, John Clewley, Published on 22/07/2014

    » One of the best new bands I came across during my recent trip to the UK was the eight-member, London-based outfit, Ibibio Sound Machine. I picked up the band’s eponymously named debut album, which was released earlier this year on vinyl with an MP3 download included in the package, at Piccadilly Records in Manchester while I was trawling the racks and listening to some of my selections. I was very taken with the single released from the album, Let’s Dance (Yak Inek Unek). Soundway Records, better known for its reissue compilations, is the band’s label.

    Setting the stage for change

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 18/12/2013

    » As more and more people fall victim to Thailand's censorship laws _ and as the political divide deepens _ the local theatre scene continues to flourish. It is easily the artistic field least supported by the state, and receives little to no corporate sponsorship. As a result, theatre artists have mostly escaped the state censors' radar _ compared to, say, film _ and are mainly free from creating work to fulfil nationalistic, ultra-royalist agendas in order to obtain funding. Thus, theatre is probably the most politically minded among all forms of artistic and cultural expression in Thailand.
