For the Hue Festival in June 2006, the British Council contributes two  spectacular performances of physical theater entitled ’Line Point’ by aerial artist Maltida Leyser and ‘Street Arts on the South Bank’.

“Line Point” comprises two parts ‘Lifeline’ and ‘Dead Point’. Described as a poetic and eloquent exploration of a lifetime from birth to death, ‘Line Point’ is a performance on and around a single vertically hung rope.
