Ho Chi Minh City’s show will be free of charge at the Young World Theater on June 7-8. While tickets for the Hanoi show will be sold at reasonable rates of VND20,000-50,000, especially for students of the Japan Culture Exchange center at 27 Quang Trung.

At the Hanoi show, the artist will present to the audiences his latest works, including “A World in Balance”, which earned a gold medal at the third World Delphic Games in 2009.

The Ho Chi Minh City event will enchant crowds with his popular performance “My Angel”.


Naoki graduated from the International School of Pantomime in Paris studying under Marcel Marceau, the founder of modern pantomime, and at the National School of Music, Dance and Drama Art (Conservatoire Niedermeyer d’lssy Les Moulineaux).

In his dual role as actor and producer, he takes an active role in many performances, contributing to promoting pantomime in Japan.

His silent movements penetrate language barriers and inspire us not only with laughs but also with the profoundness of the story line.

This is the second time the artist will perform in Vietnam. Earlier he performed in Hanoi and the ancient capital city of Hue in 2010.
