To nurture the future generation of
Thai performing artists,
To preserve Thai cultural heritage, and
To promote performing arts as an integral
part of creative life in Thailand.
About Me :
In Thailand, the name Patravadi is synonymous with the performing arts. For over thirty years, Patravadi Mejudhon has taken pioneering roles as actress, playwright, director, producer, teacher and arts advocate, and she is a celebrated figure in Thai dance and theatre.
In 1992, Patravadi Mejudhon founded the independent art space Patravadi Theatre. Since then, the theatre has grown to become the centre of contemporary performing arts in Thailand. Patravadi Theatre has nurtured numerous talented artists, staged various acclaimed productions, organized festivals and international exchanges, and at the same time preserved and developed traditional Thai arts.
Today, Patravadi Theatre has extended its outreach
beyond Bangkok to other parts of Thailand. The
community setting of Suan Silp Baan Din Arts Centre (Ratchaburi) will further the theatre’s mission for different sectors of the Thai society. Patravadi High School, the first school in Thailand that combines normal curriculum with performing arts training, will also be completed in 2010 to provide quality education in Thailand.
