Theatre. This Song Father Used to Sing (Three Days in May)
This event has already passed
From 11 to 16 May 2019 at the Tour à Plomb sports and cultural centre. In Thai, with subtitles in Dutch, English and French.
This Song Father Used to Sing (Three Days in May) zeroes in on a small kitchen space in Bangkok. A brother and sister live through three days there in May, each time in a different calendar year. Their retiring nature contrasts with the captivating and often absurd conversations they engage in. While cooking together, they mourn and show respect for their deceased father. Past, present and future blend subtly and are connected to the political context of the Thai metropolis.
Wichaya Artamat shows life as it is, without drawing a veil over its alienating character. His characters' statements do not serve any logic and neither do they lead to a clear end.
