HA NOI (VNS) — A drama entitled Cai Lao Hoan Dong (Rejuvenation) will be performed by Vietnamese artists at the International Performing Arts Festival in Pohang City, South Korea.
A 13-member troupe from Viet Nam Drama Theatre led by director Nguyen The Vinh is in South Korea attending the festival, which ends on August 5.
The artists will perform the hilariously funny Cai Lao Hoan Dong, a short folk drama adapted by Nhat Linh. It tells of a poor farmer's victory over greedy and dishonest rivals thanks to superior cleverness.
Stage director Tuan Hai combines folklore and humour to make the story more interesting.
The play introduces the international audience to Viet Nam's traditional costumes, as well as folk dances and singing from the northern region.
The drama was voted as the most favourite play at the China-ASEAN Theatre Festival in the Chinese city of Nanning last September. — VNS
