Limited availability. Please dress comfortably for this masterclass.

About Pichet Klunchun
Pichet Klunchun bridges traditional Thai Classical Dance language with contemporary sensibility, while keeping the heart and wisdom of the convention. He trained in Thai Classical Mask Dance, Khon, from age 16 with Chaiyot Khummanee, one of the best Khon masters in Thailand. After receiving his degree in Thai Classical Dance at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, he pursued theatre both as dancer and choreographer at high-profile occasions.

Pichet has earned domestic notoriety for his efforts in contemporising Khon. He has participated lately in several intercultural performing arts programs as a Thai representative and as an international dancer-choreographer in North America, Asia and Europe. With his international working experiences and desire to establish a professional standard, Pichet founded Pichet Klunchun Dance Company in 2004.

In 2008, he received ‘Routes’ ECF Princess Margriet Award for Cultural Diversity from European Cultural Foundation. In 2012, he received another award "Chevalier of the French Arts and Literature Order" from the French Ministry of Culture for his contribution to the influence of Culture in France, in Thailand and all over the world. In 2014, Pichet was awarded the John D. Rockefeller 3rd Award by the Asian Cultural Council for significant contribution to the international understanding, practice, or study of the visual or performing arts of Asia.
