HCM CITY — Circus troupes from the Việt Nam Circus Federation will entertain audiences in HCM City and Đà Nẵng with an extravagant programme this week.
The event, Những Tài Năng Tỏa Sáng (Bright Talents), will offer circus, puppet, dance and fire art performances that have won top prizes at international circus festivals at home and abroad.
The highlights will include performances by young artists in colourful costumes who will perform on stage with light and sound effects. The programme, which features about 60 circus performers, will also include puppets and stimulating visual imagery.
“We hope our programme will not just dazzle audiences but also offer opportunities for circus artists to promote their art form,” said People’s Artist Tống Toàn Thắng, deputy director of the Việt Nam Circus Federation.
“We offer both traditional and modern features to meet the high demand of audiences. HCM City and Đà Nẵng are our big markets, following Hà Nội.”
HCM City was the first city in the country to open a magic club in 2017. The club has attracted more than 40 magicians who mostly work in traditional art theatres and circus troupes.
The club offers shows and training for children and teenagers, while poor students and children from open houses and shelters receive free courses.
The programme, Những Tài Năng Tỏa Sáng, will be staged at 8pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Bến Thành Theatre, on 6 Mạc Đĩnh Chi Street in District 1, and Tiên Sơn Sports Gymnasium in Đà Nẵng. Tickets are available at the box office. — VNS
