The classical and folk dances at Chaktomuk Theatre on Friday evening was too good an opportunity not to snap away with my camera, so here are a few more images from what was the first of a regular Friday night performance by the artists from the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts' Department of Performing Arts.
