About dancers and performances on 28 Jun

BAYDANC: is a group of artists from different artistic backgrounds with an appreciation for freedom, diversity, and nature when making art, going out for a creative journey together with the audience. Random Cubic is a contemporary dance piece which is inspired from cardboard and sticky material like tape, rice etc. Through each Random Cubic, the audience can see the materials in their different aspects and feel the obsession with it, the effect from the materials on the artists and the other way round. Besides the relation between humans and materials, we can also observe that the materials influence each other.

NGUYEN DUY THANH has pursued dancing for over 16 years so far. He is one of the first artists in Vietnam to combine Hip Hop with contemporary dance language and Asian tradition to create a unique style. Through the distortions and the ways of expression in Thán, the choreographer wants viewers to join the stage, regardless of movement or silence. He only builds the background, and the story unfolds depending on the audience.

KHAI NGOC VU is currently a dancer and choreographer at Konzert Theatre Bern, Switzerland. He had the opportunity to both study and work in Vietnam and Europe. He wishes his work could touch the people in modern life. First starting as a ballet dancer, he gradually changed to neo-classical dance, and now he has finally found himself embracing contemporary dance. Into The Well is a journey of Vietnamese looking for their identity, striking through culture challenges and reflecting themselves in correlation with nature.

About dancers and performances on 30 Jun

JAME SUTHERLAND’s work shows a male – female partnership that is broken by an external female’s attraction for the female. FeMale is about unconventional relationships and what seems to be unconventional on the outside turns out to conventional on the inside. The piece explores the possibility or the impossibility of a stable partnership between the two females.

LOOP is the first solo of the artistic director XUAN LE who was champion of France in 2009 and ranked 6th in the world championship of freestyle slalom the same year. Loop is the result of the unique combination of freestyle slalom and dance. With an uncluttered stage where character, light and sound are delicately mixed, the audience will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the imaginary and fairy world of artistic and poetic rollers lines.

Multidimensional, choreographed by HUY TRAN, opens to the public different perspectives on one choreography. But it is not alone about visual perspective. The variated dimensions range from the mood, to the music, the lighting to the scenery and the stage design. Furthermore, the audience gets the opportunity to see the same choreography from different angles. One choreography, yet not just one experience. HUY TRAN works currently as the artistic director of the Pfalztheater Kaiserslautern, Germany.
