Travelling through Phra Khanong space and time, the audiences will be experiencing the moments of Nak’s transformation during her final stage of delivery and Nak’s transmogrification when she found out about human-ghost frontier. The performance will utilize the essence of body movements and choreographic language to explore human and non-human postures as well as to interact with design elements on stage. When otherness becomes the enemy and sameness feels secure, can true love break all laws and never die? Adapted from the most well-known legend in Thailand, “Land and Skin (The Ballad of Nak Phra Khanong)” re-narrates and unfolds the story from its first version “Mak, Nak and People of Phra Khanong” that has been selected to perform at the Prague Quadrennial 2015.
