KAAN SHOW Pattaya Review: A Spectacular Cinematic Live Experience
An evening out to catch the KAAN SHOW Pattaya Review: A Spectacular Cinematic Live Experience in Pattaya, Thailand, is an absolute visual delight.
KAAN, a state-of-the-art audio-visual stunner, reimagines six famous Thai legends.
Brilliantly choreographed with a cast of over 90 actors, aerial acrobats, six baby elephants, and a horse!
The twists and turns of this epic production with projection mapping, moving sets, eight-meter animatronics, and aerial silk are mind-blowing.
I watched with my mouth open and marveled at the ingenuity of the seamless incredible special effects, talented actors, superb lighting, and a pitch-perfect sound system.
The show is modern, funny and relevant.
KAAN even plays with his smartphone in several scenes, and his messages always buzz at the most inappropriate time.
The intricate and elaborate costumes are well designed for performance as the actors and acrobats tumble around without any wardrobe malfunction.
The Story of KAAN
Inspired by folklore and the famous Thai works of literature, including Ramayana, Prince Apai Mani, Krai Thong, and others, the show seamlessly stitches these epic stories.
This is storytelling at its best. The use of special effects draws the audience into the art audio-visual stunner adventure with KAAN.
Six famous Thai legends are reimaged into an “A Spectacular Cinematic Live Experience” as we traverse the imaginary worlds.
The protagonist Kaan is dragged inside a storybook that bears his name. He is lost in another dimension.
Kaan is tasked with his sidekick ‘Gabilpuksa’ to help the heroes of popular Thai folklore.
They have to wager everything they have to find a way to return to the mortal world.
The Task and The Amulet
Every time Kaan is successful in helping an ancient hero, he is given an amulet. The amulets form a key that will help him return home.
- KAAN gives new life to these famous Thai folktales
- Phra Aphai Mani (The Wrath of the Sea Giantess)
- Phra Suthorn-Manorah (The Colors of Himmavanta)
- Manimekhala-Ramasura (The Chase of Lightning)
- Sangthong (The Wager for the Ivory Kingdom)
- Kraithong (The Underwater Abyss)
- Ramakien (The Cataclysm)
The show narrows the gap between the conventional stage and the cinematic world experience.
The magical scenes are similar to Avatar’s cinematic world, Pirates of the Caribbean, and even Power Rangers.
There are unexpected acts, aerial acrobatics, street dance, and martial arts performed by award-winning B-boy dancers and national Thai gymnastics team members.
There are dancing elephants. The director assures us that they live happily when not performing.
I observed and noticed that the elephants are highly trained. Their matadors only need to tug at their ears or motion with their hands.
KAAN show exceeds our expectations with the visual adaptation. It is a show for adults and children to enjoy.
As for me, I was thrilled with the unexpected twists and turns and visual effects.
I remember telling my companions that this shows that Malaysian would say, “Die die must go!”
