Theatre artists from 17 productions were nominated this year for the IATC Thailand Dance and Theatre Review, which took place on Tuesday at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC). Now in its fifth year, the ceremony is hosted by the International Association of Theatre Critics Thailand Center. The casual and intimate event honours plays, musicals, and movement-based productions by artists residing in Thailand.
B-Floor Theatre reigned yet again with five nominations and three wins. The company's second collaboration with Korea's Theatre Momggol, Something Missing: Rite Of Passage got a nomination for Best Performance by an Ensemble. With four nominations, Teerawat Mulvilai's Fundamental, which commemorated the 40th anniversary of the October 6 Thammasat University massacre, took home instead the Ensemble award, as well as awards for Best Art Direction and Best Movement-based Performance.
