February 19, 2023

HÀ NỘI - The puppetry performance entitled Mơ Rồng (Dream of Dragon), written and staged by director Lê Quý Dương, has been selected to participate in the 36th World Theatre Congress in the United Arab Emirates on February 19-25. After many votes, the Executive Board of the International Theatre Institute (ITI/UNESCO) officially decided to invite a delegation of Vietnamese theatre artists, representing the Asia-Pacific region to attend and perform during the World Theatre Congress with the theme "The world's performing arts reunion with humanity." The performance features actors and actresses from the Việt Nam Puppet Theatre including Hoàng Thị Kim Thoa, Nguyễn Thị Thu Hương, Nguyễn Lan Hương, Cao Thị Huyền and drummer Trần Đình Quang. This time, the Việt Nam Association of Theatre Artists decided to stage a new art piece. “Even though the performance is just over 10 minutes in length, it is succinct, concise, and has an artistic message, exploits the unique performance form of puppetry and body art, and will bring the audience a new look about Vietnamese puppetry,” Dũng said.
