Khon Thai Classical Dance and Puppet Show
The newly formed GW Southeast Asian Association, in collaboration with the Royal Thai Embassy, is hosting
a Khon Thai Classical Dance and Puppet Show as performed by the Department of
Fine Arts in the Ministry of Culture and the Joe Louis Theatre. The show weaves
together intricate styles of dance and pantomime, with riveting stories from
Thai tradition and contemporary figures like Michael Jackson. The Ambassador of
Thailand to the United States, His Excellency Ambassador Chaiyong Satjipanon,
will be gracing the event and giving an address before the show. If you are
interested in learning more about a new culture, want to see a professional
dance performance for free, or just want to support a new student group on
campus, this is the event for you.
