The first performance was called Khon: A masked dance drama from the central part of Thailand. The performance has one female and one male. The female is the daughter of a fish and Thotsakan the demon King of Krung Longka. She is in a form of a mermaid, half woman, and half fish. She rules the ocean as a queen of the fish kingdom. When Phra Ram, who is the prince of Ayuthaya, gives orders to his army to build a stone causeway from the mermaid to the isle of Krung Longka, Supanna Matcha has the piled-up stones removed by her fish subjects. On learning of this, Phra Ram sends Hanuman in pursuit of the one responsible. The white monkey seeks out Supanna Matcha in the depth of the ocean and after her capturing her, he wins her over his course after an intensive courtship.   The second performance was a Thai traditional dance called Fon Khan Dok a performance from the northern part of Thailand.
