To get an insight into Thai culture, head to the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) today, where a group will put on a dance performance that showcases different cultures of the region. Titled Destination Thailand, the cross-cultural event used to be conducted on a small scale
earlier, but for the first time the Royal Thai Consulate General in Mumbai is organising it on a large scale.
A Thai dancer performs at the Indo-Thai cultural festival in Hyderabad.
“The Tata Theatre can accommodate thousands of people. So we would like people to come and enjoy these dance performances,” says an officer from the Royal Thai Consulate-General, adding, “If the response is good, we might plan to organise the event annually.”
The dancers are a group of students from Thailand’s Pibulsongkram Rajabhat University. They have come down to present 16 dance forms. Guests will be served Thai snacks before the show and will be gifted a fruit and souvenir.
Destination Thailand will be held today at the Tata Theatre, NCPA, from 7.30 pm. Admission on a first come, first serve basis. Call 2282 4567 for details.
