”The Other Land” was praised by the S.E.A. Write judges in 1996 as ‘stories of literary value and delicate presentation, allowing freedom of imagination in its readers.” The work by Kanokphong Songsomphan, an author who devoted his life to writing until its last minute, inspired B-Floor Theatre to create a contemporary performance in 2008. Selected short stories from the collection: “On Coliseum Street, “Homeland,” and “The Cat of Bu Kre Krue Saw,” were woven together and retold to reflect social conflicts at the time. “Everyone loves their country, so why are they fighting?“
Directed by Teerawat Mulvilai, the director of “Flu-Fool” and “Oxygen.” “The Other Land” will be performed (with English surtitles) as part of Diverse Arts Festival by the Pridi Banomyong Institute Date: 5th-7th and 12th-14th October, 2010 at 8pm, with a matinee performance on Saturday 6th October at 2pm and a post-show discussion with the director, activists and artists from the South.
