[CANCELLED]. CSEAS Performance. Nonthuk's Duty

Regrettably, to limit the potential spread of respiratory viruses and safeguard those at highest risk of catching COVID-19, this event has been cancelled.
Thursday, April 9, 2020
7:00-8:00 PM
First floor lobby Off Campus Location
The Moradokmai Theatre Community of Thailand

A dramatization of the story of Nonthok, one of the most beloved episodes from the Thai epic, the Ramakien. Nonthok serves as foot-washer to the celestial angels, who tease him about his duties. He gets a magic finger from the higher God to protect himself, but ends up misusing it. The moral of the story: if everyone does their duty, the world will be safe and sound.

The Moradokmai Theatre Community is affiliated with a home school by the same name; the group is touring the U.S. to raise awareness of the needs of the elderly and disabled in its community.

Organized by the Center for Southeast Asian Studies; cosponsored by the Center for World Performance Studies and the Department of Asian Languages and Culture.
