Macbeth Finally Plays in Vietnam

With the imagery of the witches running through the whole production, great soundtrack-style music and six actors doubling up in numerous roles to make up the full cast of the play, Macbeth's opening night at the Ho Chi Minh City Opera House on Wednesday Oct. 26 proved to be everything that was expected and more.

The World’s a Stage

In the middle of September the local arts scene was given an electrifying jolt as a joint Japanese-Vietnamese multimedia theatre project took to the stage in Saigon. Presented by The Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam in cooperation with the Arabesque Dance Company, the performance was the second in a series of collaborations between Vietnam-based, American-raised artist Tiffany Chung and Japanese duo Off-Nibroll. It also pulled in the talents of Vietnamese lighting director Tan Loc as well as the music of Dao Duy Tung.

Multimedia Theatre Project

The Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam, in cooperation with Arabesque Dance Company, presents a multi-media dance/theatre project, “A flower” and “Chronicles of a soundless dream” by Mikuni Yanaihara & Keisuke Takahashi (Off-Nibroll, Japan) and Tiffany Chung (Vietnam/USA). The artists were first brought together by Theatre Works Singapore for its 2007 edition of the Flying Circus Project. Finding a profound artistic connection with one another, they have since exchanged ideas on collaborative projects. Their first collaboration, supported by Art Matters New York and Fukagawa Tokyo Modan Kan Gallery, was realized as an exhibition and performance entitled Fukawaga Shokudo in early 2011. Their upcoming multi-media dance/theatre project in Ho Chi Minh City is their second collaboration.
