Last March, the series the “Rice of Southeast Asia” was launched at SEA Junction with a talk by Tongtham Natjumnong, editor of Siam Rat newspaper, historian, poet, and political commentator on the “Origin of Tai Ancient Culture”. The series organized by SEA Junction in collaboration with Asiatopia International Performance Art and E-Shann Way Magazine focuses on rice as a core element of Southeast Asian cultures. All dimensions of rice, from culture to science and agriculture are discussed in a series of lectures, exhibitions and other events.

The second event of the series, is a performance by Jittima Pholsawek, who has studied rice culture in Thailand for many years to produce the TV series “Rice Tales” about local tales related to rice from ancient to contemporary times. In her show at SEA Junction, she will bring these “rice tales” to life with an imaginative poetry monologue cum multi-media performance.

Jittima Pholsawek is an artist, writer, poet and TV producer. Since 2000, she established the Community Art Project, which engages with communities that are in conflict with large scale development projects. She is one of the front line performance artists in Thailand, and has participated in many life performance events in Thailand and in international art festivals in Europe and America.

Professional simultaneous interpretation Thai-English will be provided with headsets. We sincerely thank Nampueng Patricka Chulamokha and Boomerang Organizer and Consultant Company Limited for making this possible.
