Traditional Thai Dance

Thailand

Khon is a traditional drama dance that originates from Thailand. It is performed in the royal court by men. The Khon primarily performs acts from the Ramakein or 'Ramayan', which is a holy text for the Hindus. Here, the dancers perform in 'Hanuman' and 'Suvannamacha' masks, which are figures from the text.
