Japan center to organize street dance performances in Hanoi
The Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam will present a series of street dance performances at the Youth Theater in Hanoi from October 24 to 26.
The DANCE DANCE ASIA - Crossing the Movements 2019 event will feature three dance works created collaboratively by emerging directors and dancers from across Asia.
After the huge success of the Tokyo event in July, 21 leading street dancers and musicians from Japan and all over Southeast Asia including Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam will meet again to showcase a unity of outstanding techniques, exceptional expressions and music.
Launched in 2014, DANCE DANCE ASIA aims to foster cultural exchange in Asia through street dance, one of the most exciting and innovative forms of performing arts.
The project has staged performances and dance tours in nine Asian cities, with nearly 400 dancers and artists, attracting a total audience of over 30,000. This time, they will travel to Bangkok after the performances in Hanoi.
Now in its fifth year, the event presents three performances by a trio of choreographer-directors including Nikii of Thailand, kEnkEn of Japan, and Pham Khanh Linh (also known as 3T) of Vietnam, bringing together dancers from a wide range of cultural backgrounds in a unique fusion of vibrant artistry, expert technique, and exciting music.
The show is not suitable for children under six years old. SGT
