Dancers to perform in Ha Noi
HA NOI - Japanese-Vietnamese contemporary dance artist Michiyo Pham Nga will perform in Ha Noi on Sunday to celebrate the Lunar New Year.
The 23-year-old artist will perform the contemporary dance 3 Some , a piece she choreographed herself, in a show titled Let's Gather Near.
The dance work, which also features Chinese DJ Xeum, features Vietnamese folklore music and examines the desire for a free life full of happiness.
Michiyo says that if the performance is a success, she will organise a contemporary dance show in Ha Noi that combines modern dance with rock and modern pop music.
