HA NOI (VNS)— A delegation of Vietnamese theatrical workers are visiting Japan between November 21 and December 5 as part of a Japan-Viet Nam theatre exchange.
The Vietnamese workers are from Ha Noi-based Tuoi Tre (Youth) Theatre and the Theatre and Cinema College.
During the visit, the delegation met with Japan's leading theatrical artists, such as Tamotsu Wanatabe and Mitsuhiro Yoshimoto, to learn traditional Japanese theatrical arts and about developing trends in contemporary Japanese performing arts.
The delegation has also been visiting Japan's leading theatres, such as Sainokuni Saitama Theatre, Shiki Theatre, Ryuzanji Theatre, Marebito Theatre, and the New National Theatre.
The trip is part of a cultural co-operation project implemented by the Japan Foundation to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Viet Nam – Japan relations.
The project includes organising visits and exchanges to Japan for Vietnamese theatrical workers, training courses for performing artists, visits for sound and light technicians from the Youth Theatre, and financial support to equip technical facilities for the Youth Theatre. —VNS
