Pichet Klunchen and Myself
Confronting traditional notions of performance, France??ôs Jerome Bel
returns to Dance Theater Workshop with Pichet Klunchen and myself, a witty theatrical documentary of an intellectual encounter between two men. Pichet Klunchen and myself stages the meeting between traditional Thai dancer Pichet Klunchen and conceptual French choreographer Jerome Bel
. Through a lively mixture of physical demonstration and spirited verbal debate, Jerome
and Pichet??ôs lucid, humorous quest for understanding one another despite the abyssal cultural gap dividing them reminds us why contemporary art is worth caring about in the first place.
