Year 12 Practice Thai Khon Dance


Year 12 participate in a Thai Khon dance workshop.

This week Year 12 were offered the exciting opportunity to learn and practice their Thai Khon dance skills in a workshop with local instructors. Students were taught the traditional dance based on the Thai Ramakien drama, as adapted from the Hindu Ramayana epic. Year 12 acted out the struggle between good and evil, learning first hand the detail of this ancient art form. Understanding global theatre traditions encourages students to appreciate diverse cultural customs.
