Born in Alsace, France, Dede discovered her passion for dancing at the age of 7 years old with Amanda Gary and Christelle Pinet.

At the age of 18, Dede left Alsace to go to study fashion design in Paris. She joined Rick Odums dance school for few years and later on, Mickaël Billioniere with who she danced hip hop before moving to Vietnam.

Hanoi-Russian corruption play to be staged

Jan 11 and 12

Hanoi Opera House, 1 Trang Tien Street

Two-hour play directed by Chi Trung from the Youth Theatre.

The Government Inspector was written by Nikolai Vasilyevich Gogol, who is considered to be the father of modern Russian realism. The entire play is based on mistaken identity and on the panic that arises – for good reason – among officials. The actual theme is supposed to have been suggested by Russian writer Alexander Pushkin and, in its time, it was considered a daring piece of work.

The play is set in the early 1800s in a small Russian town where corruption was rampant among officials.

Each of the works takes its starting point from photographic documentations of significant political meetings that influenced the course of history. The images – sourced from historical archives and mass media – have been taken out of their original contexts and appropriated, dissected and reassembled into something new and uncanny, making it difficult to decipher between the make-believe, the manipulated and the genuine.
