Wawa The Rice Child

The Rice Child
October 26 & 27, 2010
at Crescent Moon Space

Crescent Moon’s experiments with music and songs, sand drawings, and a playful mix of shadow puppets – marionette and paper - to tell their story. Inspired by a Mekong folktale about bearing fruits from the same seed, theirs is a story about the friendship of two children, descended from two different cultures. Wawa comes from a minority group in Myanmar (Burma) and migrates to Thailand with her parents. Kao, just like the other Thai children, thinks that Wawa is different and joins the others in bullying her. But these children learn to know more about each other when they began to enjoy playing together. As they begin to see that they have more things in common, the relationship between Wawa and Kao evolved from discrimination to acceptance, from enmity to friendship, and from disunity to harmony.

Crescent Moon Theatre

One of the most active contemporary theatres in Thailand, Crescent Moon Theater aims to create theatre performances, workshop and arts activities using group efforts and dynamics. Its characteristic style is the use of collaborative approaches among its artists. For instance, the script is not only the work of the playwright but the group’s creation. Their works are designed to express their point of view, to question the meaning of life, and to surface social issues. Crescent Moon Theater is founded in the belief that theatre is the art of communication and serves as a thread to link-up people.

Crescent moon owns a small black-box theater called the Crescent Moon Space, an alternative theatre space for performances and a venue they share with contemporary theatre artists and theatre lovers.
