The Evolution of Patravadi Theatre
Patravadi Mejudhon has been a prominent name in Bangkok’s art scene for many years. Named as a National Artist, as well as an award-winning stage actress, director and playwright, she loves every aspect of the performing arts.
In 1992 she founded the Patravadi Theatre complex on the southern shore of the Chao Phrya river in Bangkok, opposite the Grand Palace to share her love of the arts. The theatre served as a training complex as well as a performance theatre for talented and aspiring dancers, both foreign and local.
The complex was a place where they could hone their talents and skills in both classical and modern dance techniques. The Patravadi Theatre was well-known for the introduction of a blend of classical and Thai dance that creates innovative and refreshing performances every time her dancers take the stage.
