"Bangkok through Crusty Frames"
, the title for this performance expresses the many perspectives of the capital of Thailand. Roughly translated from our Thai title, we chose the word ‘crusty’ to express the fragility of the infrastructure of myths, faiths, minds, environments, and the future, while the word ‘frames’ represents the various scopes of perspectives, creating this idea of the scope and delimitation of the topics to present through mixed-media mediums.
Growing up as well as residing in Bangkok for roughly 24 years, Pink Sky Orcas have experienced time flowing through this ever changing city. Very much like other ordinary children, we learned about our city, experienced its fragility and contemplated on possible causes. Could it be that we noticed the problems while ignoring responsibilities that could lead to solutions?
Pink Sky Orcas
Dhorn Taksinwarajan and Kawirat Saimek are classically trained pianists growing up in Bangkok. Both artists have combined experiences of presenting and performing internationally as musicians, improvisers, actors, composers, educators, visual artists, and writers. Their experiences combined include collaborations with interdisciplinary colleagues in various fields. While studying for bachelor’s degree, Dhorn co-founded Ensemble Laboratory, a mixed-instrument contemporary music ensemble which had the opportunity to perform in Bangkok Art Biennale 2018, by that time Kawirat was invited to perform alongside the ensemble and they kept working together since. They also worked with children in remote areas of Tak and Chiang Mai Provinces of Thailand and have experienced first-hand on how music activities can improve the well-being of the community.
The two artists share similarities in taste of music and were inspired to make their own music group, Pink Sky Orcas, which created music through mediums of various styles and structured improvisations to communicate their thoughts on current topics.
For ‘Bangkok through Crusty Frames', Pink Sky Orcas collaborated with two guest composers who are their long-time friends and former Bangkokian: Khetsin Chuchan and Taratawan Krue-On.
