New City Collective (Bangkok 2006-09)
New City Collective (NCC) was a performance art group based out of Bangkok, Thailand between the years of of 2006-09. The collective has since been disbanded.
NCC began out of a desire to see performing arts take a definitive turn in Thailand, where the audience has been nurtured in dormant waters for too long. The local art scene needed to be swept off its venerable feet and taken to more daring skies. With over nine shows to it's port-folio history, NCC grew to involve over 13 participants from five different countries. The Collective was an ever-changing entity that swallows up talents to create the unexpected in a city of die-hard conventions.
