This thesis examines an approach to creating contemporary dance inspired by the three forms of dance - classical ballet, classical Thai dance and I-San dance - on which my own experience is based, I situate myself for this thesis , within both the academic and practical elements of this project, as researcher, practitioner and choreographer. This research through practice is structured through three dance performances. Each project has a specific set of research enquiries that respond to the key thesis questions - 'how to create the I-San body' and 'how to bring I-San body back to Thailand' - which form the overall focus of this PhD project. In each practice project, I employ the notion of contemporary dance from both the Western and Thai contexts to work with my existing dance experience. The outcome from each project is analysed through the theoretical frame work in terms of establishing the notion of I-San Body. The reader will be directed towards illustrative DVD footage of training and performance elements of the project at specific points throughout the thesis.
