About The Event

For the fourth year in a row, Bangkok will rise! Starting at Benjasiri Park, women, men and children eager to act for an end to gender based violence will gather and enjoy music, dance, participate in a capoeira workshop and create artwork as others do final rehearsals of the "Break the Chain" dance. The group will do a 'practice round' dance at Benjasiri Park. The afternoon will continue at Siam Square One or Emquartier (TBD) where the dance will be performed again 'flashmob-style'. For video of our dance at Benjasiri Park and Siam Paragon in 2014: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vdF-I_T0lM and 2013 at BTS SIam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gvvmr0r1jOg
