The show is a collaboration between French-Belgian dance group t.r.a.n.s.i.t.s.c.a.p.e, Vietnam’s queen of hip-hop Suboi and prominent young musician Teddy Chilla.
The dance performance “Urban distortions” is a combination of dance, music and visual art. It will bring a poetic view of a land, a society or a city where we often question ourselves about the margins between what’s visible and what’s not.
The annual dance festival, Europe meets Asia in Contemporary Dance 2017 is held for the seventh time in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City from September 20 – October 14.
“Europe meets Asia in Contemporary Dance”, an initiative of EUNIC – the Network of European cultural institutes and embassies in Hanoi, is organized by the Goethe-Institute, L’Espace, Embassy of Spain, Embassy of Switzerland and the Consulate General of Canada in HCMC, in cooperation with the Youth Theater Vietnam and the HCMC Dance School.
The festival has successfully contributed to raising awareness on contemporary dance in Vietnam since 2011.
This year’s event will present to audiences two exciting Vietnamese productions by the Wintercearig Project and the dance company Arabesque; and four dance performances by artists from Germany, France, Spain, Switzerland and Canada.
