18 Monkeys Dance Theatre
18 Monkeys Dance Theatre presents RED PETER, a live dance performance at Bangkok CityCity Gallery. The performance is a mixture of contemporary and traditional dance inspired by Franz Kafka’s Ein Berich An Eine Akademi, in which the protagonist Red Peter, a monkey, describes his loss of true freedom in the midst of gaining acceptance and recognition in the human world. In choreographing the performance, 18 Monkeys Dance Theatre’s director and house choreographer Jim Chompee draws from the protagonist’s journey in learning how to behave like a human; the show explores the concepts of animalism, absurdity and evolution.
