Ho Chi Minh City
Inspired by the metaphoric image of the root of all trees, this year's festival is themed "Roots," depicting the message of our roots as the heritage from our ancestors. Through the lens of performing arts and ordinary activities in an artistic form, this year's shows will bring the concept of origin and growth to life.
The audience will be invited to take a deep dive back to our origins, the root of our family tree, making an exploratory journey to the deepest part of human's subconsciousness, a foundation on which one's individuality has grown and behavior has been shaped.Our artists hope to awaken the audience's memories of our long celebrated tradition of gratitude to the past generations for their sacrifices and nurture to the fruits we have harvested today.
Our artists hope to awaken the audience's memories of our long celebrated tradition of gratitude to the past generations for their sacrifices and nurture to the fruits we have harvested today. It is also our affectionate reminder to every one of us to endlessly carry the torch of dedication so that the growth of the world will be grand and evergreen.
