Thailand and other countries in Southeast Asia have diverse performing art traditions but lack an effective management to ensure that they will survive in the contemporary context. 


How can a close collaboration between artists, the state, and the private sector help make the traditional performing arts relevant to the contemporary world? What can contemporary and traditional artists do to maintain and promote their arts?

Having worked on a discussion with multiple artists, performing arts company, government agencies, and international organizations , Wayla Amatathammachad has proposed an interesting idea about Thailand’s contemporary performing art scene.


The idea can and should be turned into a collaborative action plan for those outside of the public sector to open up new possibilities in the field. The limitations in terms of funding, support, and the public perception may be turned into a driving force for new initiatives. What are the most pressing challenges faced by the people in the ecosystem of contemporary performing arts? What can we learn from the international performing arts community? What can those outside of the government or public sector do to deal with the challenges and improve the quality of life of the performing arts practitioners? Case studies and lessons learned from the international performing art community will also be discussed.

There isn’t yet a word in the Thai language for ‘archive’ in the context of performing arts. That’s how serious the situation is.


Archiving isn’t only about recording the works done but also refers to a regular continuous documentation throughout the creative process. Also, the practice of archiving can significantly enhance the artistic experience of artists. What is archiving in the context of performing arts? How can artists generate knowledge out of their creative works and pass it on to others? How can we promote archiving among Thai performing artists?
