From Goethe Institut:
After the great success last year, the European-Vietnamese Dance Days under the motto „Europe meets Vietnam in Contemporary Dance“ will once again take place in Hanoi.
Three contemporary dance productions on one evening – from Belgium, Germany and Vietnam – offer the public an opportunity to get to know different dance traditions, themes and artistic expressions.
The dance piece „Lamento“, a solo piece for the magnificent dancer Gabriella Iacono by the Belgian choreographer Michèle Anne De Mey, varies the subject of deep pain at the loss of the beloved and at being deceived by love.
The music belongs to the opera Arianna by Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643).
The German contribution „Get the revolver!“ shows the character of a woman who suffers from dementia at the end of her life, beginning to slide towards a dream world which gradually dissolves her personality.
The choreographer Helena Waldmann expresses this process in likewise oppressive as well as moving settings. With this piece, the solo dancer Brit Rodemund was awarded the title Dancer of the yearin Germany.
Vietnam’s contribution will be performed by the young dancers of the Vietnam National Opera and Ballet.
