Description

In Laos and Northern Thailand, Xieng Mieng is a very popular trickster character that represents the common man’s ability to lay low the mighty. He appears in folk tales and legends of many other parts of Southeast Asia under different names (Srithanonchai in Central Thailand, Ah Thonchuy Prach in Cambodia, Saga Dausa in Myanmar), but always as the representative of the subordinate ready to mock and defeat the overweening authority. Xieng Mieng stories come in many episodes, all featuring the notorious trickster using his wit and tricks to navigate through difficulties or to get the better of the rich and powerful.

In this new production, artists Caroline and Suzanne Borderies (puppeteers), Mirna Lekic (pianist), and David McCorkle (narrator) retell some adventures of the notorious trickster with shadow puppetry and live music.
