HAVANA — The Thang Long Water Puppetry troupe will perform at the Havana puppet festival from March 23-25, at the invitation of the Cuban Ministry of Culture.
Vietnamese Ambassador to Cuba Vu Chi Cong said at a press briefing that the troupe's shows will feature distinctive cultural characteristics of the Vietnamese people through stories about everyday and traditional life in rural communities on topics such as hunting, fishing, and rice harvesting.
Cong said the Vietnamese troupe's first appearance at the Havana puppet festival would help Cuban people gain a better understanding of Viet Nam's culture and help to promote ties between the two countries.
Twenty puppeteers founded the Thang Long Water Puppetry troupe in 1969. Its members have performed all over the world.-VNS
