Vic Hua Hin Presents Patravadi Theatre’s ‘Eclipse’

Patravadi Theatre’s ‘Eclipse’Upon the successful completion Fringe Festival 2010 in February, the newly inaugurated Vic Hua Hin Theatre keeps it promises to bring quality stage productions to the idyllic resort town. The first in the line is the new version of Patravadi Theatre’s acclaimed production ‘Eclipse’ from 20 March, every Saturday until 1 May 2010.

“Eclipse” is one of the most critically acclaimed and longest running productions of Patravadi Theatre. A music-dance-drama spectacular, “Eclipse” creatively and powerfully fuses traditional Thai drumming and dance with performing traditions from various cultures and times, producing a visually daunting and aurally pulsating production that transcends the barriers of language. Wails of Thai string instrument ‘Sor’ echo those of a violin. Delicate gestures of Thai dance and the stillness of Japanese butoh are juxtaposed with energetic movements of western contemporary dance. While drummers perform, dancers are also musicians, giving dynamic life and rhythm to the performance.

A simple plot rich with allegorical meanings, “Eclipse” uses the ancient story between Sun, Moon and Man to demonstrate the Buddhist doctrine on human sufferings, the Four Noble Truths, drawing the relationships between sufferings, knowledge, understanding and acceptance.

Co-written by artistic director Patravadi Mejudhon and Silapathorn award winner Manop Meejamrat, who also takes the roles of director, choreographer and lead performer “Man”, the new version of “Eclipse” will also feature operatic voice Zion Daoratana, whose recent presence in “Phra Lor” has captivated the house.
