Mythology from the East and music from the West meet in this prodigious intercultural piece in which Thai traditional mask dancers illustrate an epic story to the rhythm of tango by Astor Piazzolla, the world's foremost composer of tango music.

In this performance, dancers will share the stage with a live music trio, including the award-winning Argentinian pianist Nicolas Guerschberg from the jazz band Escalundrum, which is led by Astor Piazzolla’s grandson Daniel, and musicians from Pro Musica. Together they will perform the most extensive Astor Piazzolla’s music repertoire in Bangkok to date.

Debuted as Monos in 2010, this piece has been revisited after Jitti Chompee and his 18 Monkeys Dance Theatre was invited to work with Escalandrum. It premiered at Teatro San Martin, Buenos Aires in 2015.

There are two nights of this performance. All proceeds from the charity night (Nov 27) will go to the Neilson Hays Library.

Ticket Price: 3500 Baht – Charity Night; All proceeds will go to the Neilson Hays Library.
1000 Baht – Adults | 400 Baht – Students (must provide ID)
