The HCMC Opera House
The last of the events of the Europe meets Asia in Contemporary Dance Festival, Urban Distortions is a dance and musical performance put together through the collaboration of French-Belgian dance group t.r.a.n.s.i.t.s.c.a.p.e, Vietnam’s queen of hip-hop Suboi and prominent young musician Teddy Chilla.
Choreographed by Pierre Larauza and Emmanuelle Vincent, the production is inspired by the global phenomenon of migration. It raises questions such as: What is habitat? With whom do we share it? How do we perceive strangers and cultural differences? Using body and space, proximity, intimacy and the notion of culture, the performance tries to search out some answers. Both the dancers and the musicians appear on stage in transparent inflatable bubbles.
Tickets cost from VND100,000 to VND450,000 and are available through ticketbox.vn. The HCMC Opera House is at 7 Cong Truong Lam Son, Q1, HCMC and the performance starts at 8pm.
