6pm on May 20, 21, 22, 24, 25

Hanoi Opera House

1 Trang Tien Street, Hoan Kiem District,

Lang Toi (My Village) is a delicate merge of tradition and innovation, where the poetic beauty of Northern Vietnam’s village life is presented through a new cirque approach.

Farming, building activities, traditional games, and the lifestyle of the Northern villagers are recreated through ancestral bamboo props, breath-taking cirque and acrobatics performances, and rhythmic dance, to distinct folk music from more than 20 musical instruments.

Ticket prices: VND 700,000- VND 1,050,000

EXHIBITION

Exhibition "PURE GOLD - Upcycled! Upgraded!"

Heritage Space,

6 Nguyen Hoang / 28 Tran Binh, My Dinh 2,

The exhibition showcases 76 recycle exhibits exploring different approaches to using trash to create valuable products.

The materials used in the presented examples are nearly all easily available anywhere and more or less “free” – and yet they are often seen as trash with little value.
