Dao Anh Khanh will present the third in his trilogy of major exhibitions in celebration of Hanoi’s 1000th birthday. And this will be the biggest of them all.

Dao Anh KhanhAn icon in the Hanoi contemporary art scene, Anh Khanh is known for the spectacular performances that he has staged for years out at his studio in Gia Lam. Always involving music, improvised dance and fire, these events have been getting progressively bigger each year. And now, in celebration of Hanoi’s birthday, comes the biggest of them all – 1000 300* performers on a massive, 3-storey bamboo structure at his studio, and in installations along a kilometer-long stretch of road leading to the studio.

Watch Grapevine for more details.

*Original plans called for 1000 dancers on stage, but logistical and financial constraints will limit the number to 300, still an impressive number.

  1. Hey Jody, u can find it easy ! Go to Gia Lam district area, then find Ngọc Thuỵ road. And go along on the lower road. Keep couting the number. Don’t stop for watever the road looks like ( cause first time I came there, I went on the lower road, I met an ugly part of the road, thought its end of the road, but its not. ). Find the number 462. Its an alley way, keep goin to the end of the alley way, and wat thing u will see in front of u is just Khanh’s paradise ! Hope u can find it soon ! Cheers !
