    A year of tears

    Life, Published on 13/10/2017

    » One year ago today, Thailand lost a great king, the moral and spiritual centre of the entire nation. Upon hearing the news, people sobbed on the bus, wept on the train, cried in the office. It's one of those rare moments in life that affected all of us in such a way that we remember exactly where we were and how we felt when the reality of what happened set in. One year on, we ask dozens of people from all walks of life about how they remember that fateful day.

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 07/09/2017

    » Splashing Theatre returns to the stage with Teenage Wasteland: Summer, Star And The (Lost) Chrysanthemum, a play inspired by the life and work of Chit Phumisak.

    Learning from history

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 28/08/2017

    » I recently watched Netflix's Death Note adaptation, officially released last Friday on the streaming site. Based on a famous Japanese manga series, the film revolves around a young man's twisted crusade for justice after having received a special notebook -- the titular death note -- that has the power to kill anyone whose name has been written in it, provided the writer knows their face. Fed up with the many injustices in the world, the young man -- named Light -- uses the note to kill bullies, criminals and even corrupt officials from around the world under the alter-ego Kira, earning a cult-like following from those who agree with his extreme brand of justice.

    Life, Published on 24/07/2017

    » Male freshmen were ordered to feel each other's crotch, lick each other's nipples and eat a disgusting mixture of pumpkin, fermented fish and discarded vegetables -- things that look like faeces. Refuse, and the senior would escalate the punishment.

    Dissecting a nation

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 19/06/2017

    » Pasuk Phongpaichit's and Chris Baker's house is a verdant abode at the end of a maze in an Ekamai sub-soi. The garden at the back has tall trees and a small, tea-coloured pond. The whole area used to be a swamp, said Baker. The couple, both highly respected scholars in Thai studies, have been living there since 1987, or in their lexicon, "just before the boom" -- the high-flying economic expansion whose seismic shifts forever transformed Thailand in the early 1990s. Had they wanted to purchase the plot slightly later than they actually did -- after the boom had set in -- they wouldn't have been able to. "We came just before the high-rises."

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 08/06/2017

    » When Phia Ménard and her company Non Nova first came to Thailand in 2011 with P.P.P., they were playing with ice. This time, they are playing with wind.

The two shows continue today and tomorrow at the Sodsai Pantoomkomol Centre for Dramatic Arts, Faculty of Arts, Chulalongkorn University.
