STREET OPERA IN BANGKOK
Chinese Opera is a traditional art common in theatres where there are Chinese communities. In Bangkok many Thais have Chinese roots and like to celebrate public occasions, or just get propitious alms, offering a performance to their neighbours. This is the reason for the existence of traveling theatre companies, performing on rudimental, moveable stages. Everything is simple except the costumes and the make up. Such a rich mosaic of colours, combined with the spontaneous Thai acting and improvisation, creates a true immersion in a colourful soul.
