Thai Puppets and Masks: From Rama to Right Now

Friday, February 10, 2017 to Sunday, March 12, 2017
Faculty Gallery, Porter College (UCSC)
Presented by: 
Sesnon Art Gallery

This exhibit will share aspects of Thai classical and folk performing arts, including nang talung (shadow puppetry), khon (masked dance), and nora (village theatre) and will explore changes in these intangible cultural heritage genres resulting from Buddhist-Muslim conflicts in the South as a response to contemporary life and political disagreements. The use of the arts within traditional culture was strong, how do these arts respond to a modernizing world? Curated by professor Kathy Foley.

Free and open to the public.
Tuesday–Saturday, 12 to 5pm and Wednesdays until 8pm

Parking permit required in Porter College lot.
