Tri-M Jazz Night: Get your Tickets now!


Get your tickets now for the 9th annual Tri-M Jazz Night.  This year, the Tri-M council has decided to try a different format for the student organised event.  Due to the proximity to IB exams, the celebration of jazz music and ISM student talent is slightly earlier than other years, with a 3pm start time.  The program features small ensembles instead of full class groups.  Also, instead of a full buffet meal, we will enjoy a catered dessert buffet.

The program kicks off at 3 pm in the Little Theater.  Tickets are available at the ISM Cashier or at the door starting from 3:00pm.

It’s going to be an exciting showcase of student talent, as always!  We hope to see you there.

 

Photos: CulCon – Dance, Drama & Art


International School Bangkok Art teacher Basil Tahan was a key figure at this year’s convention; Mr. Tahan and his camera, that is.  In addition to taking beautiful and creative team shots (from overhead while the team was arranged on the floor in the shape of a flower) Mr. Tahan attended every performance and event, as well as many workshops – with his camera.

His photos of the Cul Con Students at work and in performance are stunning.  As one ISM student stated, “He managed to capture all of the key moments in our productions – without ever having seen the shows before!”

Please follow this link to view the photos from Dance, Drama and Art CulCon 2012.  Page 1 begins with the creation of the Art Exhibition.   Photos of Obscurum begin on page 18 and  the collection and Indulto shots begin on page 21 with a few more Obscurum shots following after the play photos.  I guarantee you will want to look at the photos from all of the performances and events.  Here is a taste:

UPDATE: IASAS Dance and Drama Performance recordings


They gasped, they laughed, they cried, they held their collective breath and at the end,  the audience leapt to their feet for thundering standing ovations at both ISM dance and drama performances at IASAS Dance, Drama & Art Cultural Convention held at International School Bangkok this past weekend. The cast of Indulto, dancers of Obscurum and technician Dinesh Mohnani all received high praise for their work on stage and backstage.  Due to the wonders of technology – and the internet – Teacher Yek (who was not able to travel with the dancers this year) gave notes and encouragement during the technical rehearsal via Skype.  Parents, teachers, friends, family and alumni from all over the world and from a variety of time zones watched the performances live via ISB livestream.  Praise, congratulations and support came pouring in via Facebook, text messages, Twitter and email.  If you were not able to catch the previews or the live stream, recordings of the performances can be found here , as well as recordings of all of the Cul Con Performances from each of the IASAS schools.  Direct links:  (Obscurum)  (Indulto – unfortunately, it seems the first 4-5 minutes were not recorded.)  We thank everyone for the support and ISB for providing this service.

UPDATE:  A higher quality version of Obscurum has just been posted to YouTube courtesy of someone who is clearly a huge fan of IASAS Dance performances (there are recordings that go back to 2006, including ISM’s Frieda (2009) and Spectra (2011).)

Congratulations to the Ms. Monsod and the cast of Indulto; Teacher Yek, Teacher Mimi and  the dancers of Obscurum and of course to Dinesh for his incredible technical designs. We are so proud of you. Welcome home.

IASAS Drama Previews: Feb.23&25


Indulto: an original play by Tami Monsod and members of the ensemble.  “A woman (torera) in the bullring is rare. Equally rare is the act of indulto. the “pardoning” or sparing the life of an etraordinary noble bull (toro) that charges bravely, honestly and tirelessly.  It is a great honor for a torero to fight a bull that is awarded indulto.  – from the program notes for Indulto
