HCM CITY (VNS) — The French Institute in Viet Nam will present a hip-hop performance Silence, On Tourne! (Quiet, We're Rolling!) by the Pockemon Crew on June 12 in HCM City.
The Pockemon Crew is one of the most successful hip-hop groups in the world, winning a number of top prizes, including the French Champion, Euro Champion and World Champion.
The group has performed at the National Opera of Lyon since 2003.
The Pockemon Crew's performance, which combines hip-hop with silent films of the 30s and 40s, reminds audiences that the energy of hip-hop, sometimes gentle, sometimes frenzied, derives from the narrative power of old silent movies.
The show begins at 8pm at Ben Thanh Theatre, 6 Mac Dinh Chi St, District 1, in HCM City. — VNS
