Hanoi-”Wonderland” the Musical
Aug 24 and 25
Vietnam Cheo Theatre, No. 71 Kim Ma Street
From PDV Production:
Following the success of the musical show FAIRYTALES in 2018 at L’Escape, this year PDV Production has officially come back with two nights of “WONDERLAND THE MUSICAL,” promising an even more unique experience of freshness and creativity on a larger scale.
By integrating the story “Alice in Wonderland” (Lewis Carroll) into the magical world of Disney characters, we will bring you on to a whole new journey with Alice as she travels back to Wonderland and reunited with her childhood friends. However, happiness does not last long when an uninvited guest appears and forces Alice and her friends to fight back. What will they do to stand up against the dark forces?
All of the show performances are directly arranged by PDV Production 2019 cast and will be performed under the guidance of our experienced professional mentors. A full-of-surprise script winged by imagination will open up a new world led by music and acting. In this two-night show, you will not see the Alice you are familiar with because this will be “WONDERLAND THE MUSICAL”. Join us and explore the adventure to Wonderland in two shows on 24 and 25 August 2019 at Vietnam Cheo Theater – No. 71 Kim Ma, Ba Dinh, Hanoi.

Hanoi-Exhibition “Street Story”
Centre of Art-Photography Exhibition, 29 Hang Bai Str, Hoan Kiem Dist
Featuring the works of a group of 5 artists – Vu Bich Thuy, Tran Luu My, Doan Hoang Lam, Tao Linh and Nguyen Minh. With approximately 40 brand new artworks, the artists want to bring street stories that are closed to their hearts to the public during the week long exhibition.
Hanoi-Exhibition “Painting the Soul”
Opening: Sun 25 Aug 2019, 5.30 pm
Exhibition: 25 – 31 Aug 2019
Exhibition hall 29 Hang Bai Street
An exhibition with the participation of three artists from Vietnam: Vu Tuan Viet, Nguyen Dinh Van and Thanh Thanh Nguyen.
Through art and emotions, the painters bring viewers to a realm of the mind where humans pour their heart out. Art is an embodiment of the curiousity about Self and The World. The three artists have created pieces that have engaged us in taking a careful look inwards, from which we have a deeper insight into ourselves and other human beings.
To create such artworks, what are the unique experiences that they – the artists have gone through? Stories of intertwined contemplation and sentiments. The quietness of the mind in a tangible and intangible world. And through their stories, why do those pieces of art share a connection and a feeling of familiarity with people?
HCMC-Exhibition “Phenomenon ÷ (Time x Space)”
6 Le Van Mien, Thao Dien, District 2, HCMC
Yohei Yama returns to Vin Gallery with his second solo project with the gallery, four years after “The Power of Semiosis” (2015). Yama derives his works from nature, spinning the waves of the cosmos and webbing together the rhythm of natural forces. His oeuvre is distinguishable by its repetition and layering of lines, colours, patterns and more often than not creating optical effects that swell and vibrate.
“Phenomenon ÷ (Time x Space)” envisions the universe and it’s life-cycles where the future becomes the present and the present becomes the past.
