Hanoi-Contemporary Dance: Intrastorm

Dec 6, 07:30 pm
Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam, 27 Quang Trung Street

From Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam:

IntraStorm is a collaborative project between 1648kilomet and The Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam, with the support of T-group, The Core production, Navigator Studio, and Meraki Saigon.

As the name of the work IntraStorm – hurricanes sweeping away all human knowledge about natural disasters and epidemics, our art director-choreographer Vu Ngoc Khai shares a perspective on life’s origin, integrity and magnitude hidden in a small seed. Inspired from what happened in 2020, he frankly mentions the relationship between humans and Mother Earth.

Will humanity be held accountable for the destruction of nature, or is everything in a samsara? Acting like they are saving the Earth, in fact, humans are merely saving themselves. No one is irrelevant when humans have satisfied their thirst for pleasure at the cost of diseases and natural disasters. Anyone can save themselves, save humanity by changing small habits in everyday life.

Tickets can be booked online for free from Dec 1, 2020.

Hue City- Exhibition “Illusion”

Nov 28 – Dec 6
Le Ba Dang and Diem Phung Thị Art Foundation, 15 Le Loi Street

From the organizer:

Illusion is the name of the latest art project of Le Ngoc Thanh and Le Duc Hai, a pair of twin artists originally from Quang Binh province, but living and working in the city of Hue for the past 20 years. Illusion is not a separate project, but belongs to a series of artistic conceptual stations created by the Le twins over the years on major topics: Violence, History, Connections, and placing them in the thought realm formed by the constant collision of real life.

This exhibition showcases 19 paintings and 4 large ceramic jars, marking the first stop of a long-term project. The paintings are processed using lacquer painting techniques, yet do not depend too much on traditional techniques but combine many methods and natural and industrial materials to create the ultimate visual effect. Ceramic jars are another experiment of flat surface painting on a 3-dimensional object in the series of work, maintaining the consistency of the visual language of the paintings, but still hinting the majestic independence of The Nine Tripod Cauldrons – collection of regional landscapes and products in the feudal cultural background.

Hanoi- Photo exhibition on Vietnamese cultural diversity

Hanoi-Exhibition “Big Talk Small Talk”

Nov 30-Dec 4
Exhibition Center of Fine Arts and Photography, 29 Hang Bai Street

From the organizer:

Pedantry hates small talk, yet poets exalt it. For the poet, a simple expression like The weather is nice today… could become as grand as the cosmos in the verse she weaves. Daily life which is almost unnoticed and invisible are obscured by ‘big talks’ from the popular media. The lacquer works of fiver artists are an attempt to clear our eyes from filters to let us listen to the conversations they have in their daily lives. These conversations are as stimulating as the bitterness we taste in our morning tea, as comforting the crisp sound from the leaves blown by the autumn wind, as soothing as the palate of the skyline of Hanoi approaching winter.
