UHM Theatre Alumna in the News

UHM Theatre Alumna Parichat Jungwiwattanaporn is currently Dean of Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts at Thammasat University in Thailand. Rarely does she get the chance to Direct, but she recently took on The Voyage which is turning heads and hearts by telling true stories of migration and immigration. 

Even though it’s not political with a capital P, The Voyage, a documentary and devised performance, is refreshingly defiant. The production by Thammasat University’s Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts, which was shown this past weekend as part of the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre’s Performative Art Festival #6, brings true stories of war, migration and resilience to the stage with touching simplicity and clarity.

In undemocratic times, giving space and voice to overlooked stories of oppression and discrimination is an act of defiance. So is exploring national identity through family history.” –Bangkok Post 9/7/17
