Hanoi | Europe Meets Asia in Contemporary Dance | festival

8 "Europe meets Asia in Contemporary Dance" - The Dance Festival is taking place for the third time and is already a major event in the cultural calendar of Hanoi. Received by both media and the public with enthusiasm and applause, this festival has successfully contributed to a growing awareness of contemporary dance in Hanoi since 2011. "Europe meets Asia in Contemporary Dance" is an initiative of EUNIC, the Network of European cultural institutes and embassies in Hanoi, in cooperation with the Vietnam National Opera and Ballet (VNBO) and this year will be coordinated by the Goethe Institute. Larger and more diverse than in the past two years, this year’s festival includes dance pieces from five countries: Belgium (Wallonie-Bruxelles), France, Great Britain, Israel and Japan. In addition, there will be one German-Vietnamese and one French-Vietnamese co-production. On five evenings the audience will experience a broad spectrum of contemporary dance to soundtracks ranging from hip-hop through electronic to classical music.
