From the organizer:

The French Institute in Vietnam presents the circus show “Here, now and there” by the Chabatz d’Entrar Company at Ben Thanh theatre. The performance is a part of the 40 year celebration of diplomatic relation of France – Vietnam.

An experiment of various visual art forms, where the body language and motion are the starting a point for the journey to explore this interesting contemporary performance act .The program includes object manipulation, acrobatics and live music – a creative product of French and Indonesian artists after their Bandung residency.

“Here, now and there!” is the work that has been prepared for 6 months in Bandung. This performance keeps showing the characteristic of Chabats d’Entrar; the usage of simple items, stilts and bamboo to create an effect of fragile balance. They will go on tour to several cities in Indonesia, and then will finally perform in East Timor and Vietnam in June 2013 and France in June 2014.

Founded in 1997 in the Limousin, the company settled in rural Saint-Junien, where she set up a factory and place of artistic practice: « RUE DU CIRQUE ». The company has always experimented with visual art forms where the body and movement are the starting point of the search for contemporary performing arts. Object manipulation and tricks in the service of works that intend to entertain in the political sense: away, take a step back, deflect the trajectories of thinking.

Tickets on sale at the IDECAF. Tel : (08) 38 23 99 68.
