Thai expression in paint and dance. Local park activities in Bangkok.



Santichaiprakarn Park on Phra Arthit Road
is a rare slice of green space in my locality. The area is crammed with arty bars and cafes, popular with university students as well as many travellers into martial arts, juggling, hula-hoops and dance. It makes for a perfect photographic outing and you’ll see many of my weekend images from the park on this blog.

This traditional Thai dance piece from the Bangkok Theatre Festival Dance with very non-traditional hip hop accompaniment (similar music added for effect) appeared at my local park recently… (the main bare-chested actor appeared in the epic King Naresuan Films – big stuff here).

Another favourite park activity: Fine Art students recently participated in an art-reality show, a national competition with a top prize of US$3000 and TV exposure. Original paintings created to music and judged at the end of the day. Some great moves here. Enjoy!
