U-kabat, an artists group based in Bangkok and Black Market International based in Europe, have similar function, which based on individual artists and do not have group structure. The groups emerge as they perform together each time. However, they are both different in their social and cultural background. Black Market International, mainly emphasis in interacting and harmonizing in their meeting, as they develop the performance site and situation together. The U-kabat, is violently mixing their individual political actions together in the confinement of time and space. Their differences are similar to the differences between priests and shamans, a churches of subdued sacred activities and a chaotic of weekend markets in Bangkok city.
