Chinese New Year, 2011 as part of my ongoing Gat Luang, Chiang Mai project I had the opportunity to spend a few evenings with a Chinese opera troupe performing at a stage near the Ping River. The troupe members were from Thailand and southern China and perform at temple celebrations across the region. When not performing many of the troupe's members live in Bangkok's Yaowarat / Chinatown neighborhood. My hope has been to try to meet up with them again as they tour through Malaysia but that hasn't happened yet. Until then here is a multimedia of our time together last year.
