American Contemporary Ballet Company coming to Vietnam
Trey McIntyre Project, an American contemporary ballet company is set to perform in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City at the invitation of the US Embassy.
The dance company will perform at 8:00 pm at Au Co Theatre, No. 8 Huynh Thuc Khang Street, Hanoi on 16 May and Opera House at Ho Chi Minh City on 18 May. After that they will have creative dance interactions with various dance troupes in Vietnam, such as the Theatre of Vietnam Music, Dance & Songs, Vietnam Dance College and Bong Sen. They will also visit underprivileged and disabled children as part of their schedule.
Trey McIntyre is one of the most sought-after choreographers working today. His works have been hailed as “genuine 21 century ballet” (Los Angeles Times) brimming with “a fertility of invention and a modernity of spirit” (New York Times). He created his namesake dance company in 2005 and it quickly became a star in the American dance scene. They are framed for using classical ballet as a departure point to create exuberant dances that create unique culture for audiences to engage with their works. The company was selected to tour Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City in order to share some of America’s finest contemporary dances with Vietnamese people.
Tickets for both performances will be provided free of charge on a first come first serve basis. People in Hanoi can register for tickets at the US Embassy website. People in Ho Chi Minh City are advised to bring identification to the US Consulate General Public Affairs Section at 8th floor, Diamond Plaza, No. 34 Le Duan Street, District 1 to pick up tickets. Each person is allowed to collect up to 2 tickets.
