About the Thai Dance Performance
The Sukhothai Dance
The time between 14th and 15th century is called the Sukhothai period - the period where we laid our cultural foundation and create our own arts. The music was composed in accordance with the general style of the Sukhothai art, which displays distinctive gracefulness.
The Pursuit of Supanna Matcha
This is an episode from Khon – a masked dance-drama performance of Ramakien. Supanna Matcha is the daughter of a fish and Thotsakan. She has the form of a mermaid and rules the ocean as queen of the fish kingdom. Under the order of Phra Ram, Hanuman – the white monkey, came to pursuit Supanna Matcha and wins her over after an intensive courtship.
Phra Ram and Thotsakan in Combat
This epic battle scene is another episode from Khon. This is the royal battle of the two brothers – Phra Ram and Phra Lak against Thotsakan – the demon king of Krung Longka. Hanuman – the white monkey also joins in the royal brother’s side. The performance displays skillful and unique dance movements.
Dance of The Four Regions
This dance is newly created by the Thai Fine Arts Department. It is a combination of short dances in traditional costumes, representing the north, the central, the south and the north-east region of Thailand.
Ponglang – is the famous Thai folk music instrument of the northeastern or “Isaan” region. The dance style is called “Serng”, demonstrated by fast and lively movements. This dance is customarily performed by young couples, wearing local traditional costumes.
