HA NOI — The world-acclaimed French hospitality sector will take the stage when two French contemporary artists perform in Ha Noi this week.
Do Disturb! will be performed at the Sofitel Metropole Ha Noi.
The choreographers, 33-year-old Emmanuelle Becquemin and 34-year-old Stephanie Sagot, will use a cocktail party as the backdrop for their story.
The artists will use a myriad of performance devices throughout the play, which seeks to provide an insight into the process of consumption. The duo has exhibited their work in Asia, South America and Europe.
Before the performance in Ha Noi, the duo will perform in Sofitel hotels in Beijing, Manila and Phnom Penh.
The Ha Noi performance will start at 7pm on Friday and Saturday. Tickets cost US$35 and are available at the hotel, 15 Ngo Quyen Street.
World bubblemaker comes to VN
HA NOI — Canadian-based bubble artist Fan Yang will perform in HCM City on April 29 and Ha Noi on May 28 after targeting his 17th Guinness record in the US with a bubble surrounding 150 people.
Yang said he would perform eight shows in HCM City, in which he would recreate the bubbles that made the Guinness record book.
Yang has pledged all proceeds from his first show in HCM City and his attempt at the new record on April 4 to a relief fund for Truong Son soldiers who fought during the American War.
Yang, whose father is Hungarian and mother is Vietnamese from Hai Phong, has earned international acclaim for his complex bubble theatre displays.
He developed his own bubble-making solutions and equipment to break the world records. His wife, Ana, performs the show in his absence.
Yang owns an entertainment corporation based in New York and has performed in more than 10 countries. — VNS
