About the artist:
For WhaT theatre is a group of three theater makers from three different existing theater troupes: Wichaya Artamat of New Theatre Society, Sasapin Siriwanij of B-Floor Theatre, and Ben Busarakamwong of Crescent Moon Theatre.
The collective has been continuously producing artistic works in various forms, including theater, live performance, story telling, puppetry, party, and exhibition. Among their wide range of creations are 6th PARTY Re:Re:Khaosarn, 3 Days in May, Little Red in The Ruins, What We Talk About When We Don't Talk About the Elephant in the Room, , SandCastle Party | a Journey Performance, and Oh! Ode (Oh! What Joy, What Goodness, What Beauty Calls For Ode No.7012).
The three come together, as the group's name suggests, to question their own practices, as well as explore deeper into the variety of artictic forms and processes that can serve to convey social, polical, gender, and religious and faith issues. For WhaT theatre is in a way like a playground, a laboratory, and a free space to pose questions and find answers that they have for themselves and their society.
