Tonight and tomorrow night, November 23 and 24, The Space Bangkok presents a very special cultural performance.
Sayari Roots of Gypsy examines Rajasthani dance and music through the lens of the Sapera tribe of Kalbelia, a community of snake charmers and quite possibly the source of the Romany gypsies.
This itinerant dance troupe performs live around the world, but plans to tour extensively through Thailand, starting with these two shows above at The Space, above 7-Eleven in Khlong San Plaza.
Through brightly coloured attire and jewellery, undulating musical rhythms, and vibrant, fast-paced dancing, the performance recalls the deserts and palaces and rustic energy of northern India. Click here for a look at the Sayari dancers in action.
Doors and the bar open at 7pm, and the show starts at 8pm on the dot. The Space will stay open until midnight, allowing guests to meet and greet the Sayari troupe.
A B350 donation is requested to cover expenses for the performance troupe and production costs. The price includes a complimentary beer or cocktail. Students receive a 50 per cent discount.
