RAMAKIEN

Thai legendary event

Also known as Rammakian, RAMAKIAN, รามเกียรติ์

The Ramayana Remix

This is the great Ramayana Epic of Hinduism re-written, revised, revamped and occasionally recast for Thailand.

The Ramakien is performed as a lavish stage extravaganza called Khon, with masks, glittery costumes and all the thrills, spills and funky dance moves Thailand is capable of.

It’s a feast for the eyes and ears. There is even a shadow play version called Nang yai. It’s a wonder Metro-Goldwin-Meyer never got their hands on it.
