Dancing with Death

A new physical vocabulary is created in Dancing with Death that marries this open, improvisational, organic and intuitive nature of folk expression with Klunchun’s contemporary choreographic system based on classical Thai dance.

Dancing on the Edge Festival | Unwrapping Culture

七月 12, 2017 - 六月 22, 2017

Unwrapping Culture brings together two exceptional male dance artists: Canada’s own Alvin Erasga Tolentino, and Pichet Klunchun, an outstanding exponent of the Thai classical dance style of Khon, who is known internationally for contemporizing this ancient form. Their first collaboration combines the technique, theatricality and storytelling elements of Khon to create a devastating critique of the corruption of authentic Thai culture by the forces of commercialization, in a passionate and bitingly funny duet which immerses the audience in the conflict between traditional and modern.

Pichet Klunchun received an ACC Fellowship in 2000 to participate in the APPEX Program at UCLA. Pichet received the ACC's John D. Rockefeller 3rd Award in 2013 for his distinguished contribution to the international appreciation and understanding of Asian art and culture, particularly for his dedication to preserving the integrity and vitality of Thai classical dance.
