Description This section illuminates the charms of ASEAN mask dramas, which recreate myths and the historical values that permeate them. ASEAN mask dramas are a total art, the synthesis of masks, costumes, music, and dance, mainly telling folk tales or historical narratives. In particular, ASEAN countries such as Cambodia and Thailand have developed dance drama, mask drama, and also shadow puppetry by dramatizing the Hindu epic Ramayana from ancient India. Not only do ASEAN mask dramas show the diversity and artistic creativity of ASEAN culture but they also play an important role as a medium of cultural exchange.
