The concert focuses on works written after the 1960s that do not rely on precise pitch or perfect unison and that do not prescribe an exact duration or specific instruments, etc. These pieces are scored with graphic elements or mere text, allowing and even intending for each musician and ensemble to create a whole new interpretation and sound entirely different from any other performance of that same piece.

Les Miserables

Hanoi Opera House

For those who love romanticist literature, Victor Hugo and his work “Les Miserables” are unmistakable. The work has been adapted into many genres, but the musical is generally seens as one of the best versions. Amongt the best-selling musicals of all time, “Les Miserables” brings many deep and poignant emotions both in terms of its content and art.

The musical is a perfect combination between theatrical choreography, music, acting and body language. Audiences coming to the musical will cry and laugh together, and immerse themselves in the world of the characters through vivid melodies, sometimes emotional, sometimes powerful and fierce.

HO CHI MINH CITY

EXHIBITION

Group exhibition: Impressions Unearth

March 23 – May 29
San Art
Millennium Masteri, B6.16 & B6.17, 132 Ben Van Don, W.6, D.4, Ho Chi Minh City

‘Impressions Unearth’ aims to consider the significance of each body-of-work and uncover how the present artists have, in their specific ways, explored, experimented and recontextualised ceramics and elevated them beyond craftsmanship. Connecting Bui Cong Khanh, Le Trieu Dien, Hong Linh and Nguyen Duc Phuong are ceramics that are in one way or another attached to vernacular traditions – whether in terms of their aesthetic, medium, theme, or site of production – but that have also severed ties with notions of use and function. They are works that test the conceptual boundaries of the medium, objects that intellectualise, revive and honour Vietnamese heritage while expanding our perceptions of ceramics within contemporary art.
