Thai dancer, Pichet Klunchun bridges traditional Thai classical dance language with contemporary sensibility, while keeping the heart and wisdom of the convention. From the age of 16 he trained in Thai classical mask dance, khon, with Chaiyot Khummanee, one of the leading khon masters in Thailand. After receiving his degree in Thai classical dance at the Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, he pursued theatre both as dancer and choreographer at high-profile occasions, such as the opening and closing ceremonies of Asian Games in Bangkok in 1998. Subsequently, he also worked with contemporary dance. Klunchun is the founder of the LifeWork Company which provides training for young artists in Thai classical dance, and has participated in several intercultural performing arts programs as a Thai representative and as an international dancer-choreographer in Asia and Europe.
