Dusit Thani Bangkok

Off The Beaten Track – Bangkok Puppet Show at Aksra Theatre

One of Bangkok’s must-see attractions, this performance of folk tales told through the classic art of puppetry takes place on an elaborate stage.  Rather than being hidden away, the puppeteers are very much part of the show. Three puppeteers control the legs, arms, and head of each puppet. Dressed in black, they blend into the background while the colourful puppets come to life. Both puppets and puppeteers dance along with a live orchestra, featuring a combination of Thai and European instruments.

“Aksra Hoon Lakorn Lek” (small rod puppet show) is truly representative of Thailand’s rich artistic tradition.  It provides audiences with a cabaret-style show of rod puppets weaving together music, spectacular set design, costumes, and light and sound with superbly choreographed Thai classical dance. The troupe of Thai classical puppeteers is highly skilled at orchestrating puppets with flawless precision, rendering performances of sublime harmony. The puppets bring to life scenes from several stories including those from the famous ancient “Ramayana”.

Aksra Theatre is one of few remaining venues where the Thai traditional puppet performances can still be seen. During the 75-minute performance you will be charmed by both the hilarious interludes and the Jongkraben Orchestra, which performs by both Thai and Western instruments. 
Thursday – Friday                     7.30pm
Saturday – Sunday                  1.30pm and 7.30pm
