Trà ART is a multi-sensory exhibition on Shan tea, wild tea trees of hundreds years old grown by ethnic minorities in Ha Giang.
The Paris-based Vietnamese photographer Nguyen Thi Tuong Van, who raised the idea and created Trà Art project, brings together 5 excellent artists from 5 different fields to collaborate and give the audience an unprecedented experience: Nguyen Quynh Phuong – animator, Marcus Bowler – 3D artist, the late Gérald Gorridge – painter, Tran Thu Hang – sculptor, Ngo Hong Quang – artist/musician.
Trà ART is an experience that will gently awaken our 5 senses and bring us to the world of Shan tea through different art forms. The audience will also have the chance to witness the unique performance by dance artist Mai Anh with background music written by musician Ngo Hong Quang while enjoying premium Shan tea at the opening at 6 pm on 01 Jun.
