HCM CITY — The contemporary dance Café Saigon, choreographed by Dutch dancers Maïté Guérin and Joost Vrouenraets,will be held at 8pm on January 19 at the HCM City Opera House at 7 Lam Sơn Square in District 1.
Guerin and Vrouenraets worked with about 20 dancers from the HBSO Ballet for about a month to create a strikingly different style of contemporary dance that has never been performed by the HBSO Ballet.
Ten dancers were later selected for the work.
The dance features the Saigon coffee scene and relationships among young people: how they come together and then separate, intertwined with passion and eagerness, as well as thoughts about everyday problems.
Tickets are VNĐ300,000 to VNĐ650,000 per person. — VNS
