From Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam:

The Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam proudly presents street dance performances, featuring three dance works created collaboratively by emerging directors and dancers from across Asia.

Following initial creative development in Manila and Hanoi in September and October in 2016, the three teams of dance artists will come to Hanoi to perform on 22nd and 23rd of April at Youth Theatre.

The Japan Foundation Asia Center starts a long-term ASEAN project named “Dance Dance Asia” from 2015 to support the exchange and collaboration of Asian regional dance companies / dancers that are based on street dance, including not only hip-hop but variety of genres such as jazz dance, contemporary dance, etc.

Now in its third year, DANCE DANCE ASIA presents three performances by a trio of choreographer-directors—Munetaka Maki (MIKEY from Tokyo Gegegay) (Japan), Vince Mendoza “Crazybeans” (Philippines), LION T (Vietnam) — bringing together dancers from a wide range of cultural backgrounds in a unique fusion of vibrant artistry, expert technique, and exciting music.

The event is a superb opportunity for audiences in Vietnam to experience the cutting edge of Japanese and Asian street dance that is wowing the world today.
