Sartorial – Tailoring the Chatree dance Kru Kanya Thipayosot, the latest traditional dance professor originates from the Chatree inventor's direct root. The Chatree drama is adapted from the Nora dance (Recognised by UNESCO) when her family moved from the south to Bangkok. It later became popular and was presented at various ceremonies both domestically and abroad. However, since the form of entertainment in Thai society has changed over time, the space to express Thai drama and culture has been reduced to the point where it disappears. “Sartorial” means fitting a suit to the wearer. The same goes for the apprentice to put their movement to fit perfectly to their teacher. It is necessary that dance teachers teach their students to have the right posture in every process. As well as wearing clothes that are not too large, not small, not too short, not too long. During the Bangkok Design Week event, we worked with the Nang Loeng community to bring the roots of Thai culture and present it throughout the design process. Contemporary cultural designer Mr. Rush Pleansuk and the Sumphat Gallery team have created new spaces for Chatree dance. We can experiment through gestures and music with screening mapping. Our piece is surrounded by the traditional atmosphere of the community, which is the residence of Thai musicians and dancers. The exhibition runs from February 4 to 12, and can be viewed from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM.
