Khon Sala Chalermkrung
(Chalermkrung Royal Theatre)

          Built more than 70 years ago as a gift from King Rama VII to the people of Thailand to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the founding of Bangkok, Sala Chalermkrung has always been a popular venue for a wide range of entertainments, including Khon(Thai masked dance drama), live theatre, films and music. The theatre’s success has been due in large measure to the cooperation of so many people in the performing arts community, from both public and private sectors. Because of its history and the place which holds in the public’s heart, the management of Sala Chalermkrung understands the importance of protecting and preserving this architectural and artistic treasure. The theatre has a vital role to play in the conservation of the country’s arts and culture, and the management recognizes its obligation to offer the public quality performances to suit varying tastes.

          Sala Chalermkrung Royal Theatre was the first work designed by architect Mom Chao Samaichalerm Kridakara after the completion of his training abroad. The building is a harmonious blending of exterior Western architecture and Thai interior design.

   
      An example of contemporary architecture, the theatre is a tall, squared structure with very solid structural supports. It was designed as a space for the showing of films and for musical and theatrical performances. The lobby is located on the ground floor in the front of the theatre, and above this, on the mezzanine level, is a special reception area called the Mekkhala Room, which is used for members of the royal family and visiting VIPs, and for press conferences.

          Since December 2005, the Sala Chalermkrung Foundation has been holding Khon -Thai Classicl Masked performances at the Sala Chalermkrung Royal Theatre. Since 2nd July 2013, the Sala Chalermkrung Royal Theatre holds a new Khon show inspired by the Ramakien epic story a selecting 3 episodes of the previous performances, which are entitled "Pra Chakrawatan", "Hanuman the Mighty" and "Hanuman Becoming Phra Chakri's Devotee". On the occasion of its 80th anniversary, the Sala Chalermkrung Royal Theatre presents the new episode entitled "Hanuman".


 

            "Hanuman", the white lovely monkey with supernatural power, is almighty, grateful and loyal, although he is sometimes impetuos and disobedient. Presenting the story through the character Hanuman, a commoner who has both good and bad qualities, makes the audience, both children and adult, feels like watching drama or movies. It is more realistic because the protagonist isn't perfect and the audience can ralate themselves to him. Kids will be fond of Hanuman and adult will adore him. This will hopefully change people's perspective from Khon as a distant noble Thai dancing art to Khon as a performance which can relate to every audiences. In addition, the new episode Hanuman requires more performance, which gives new opportunities for rising generations of youth to participate in the show; up to 80% of the performers who were selected by Khon teachers and masters. The talented actors are skilled in Khon performances and they can dance in graceful and beautiful poses.

          From the complete dedication, both spiritually and physically, of the director, trainers, actors, musicians and members of the crew which work in collaboration for the production of the new Khon performance "Hanuman", we hope you enjoy a great show that will make you feel happy and proud of Khon, a Thai noble performance art which lived for centuries.
