The Hue Festival, one of Vietnam’s premier international art events, is set to captivate audiences once more. This year’s festival, taking place from June 7 to 12, promises a unique cultural experience, showcasing a diverse range of performances from both local and international artists.

Among the highlights is the highly anticipated performance by the Belgian breakdance group, The Double Impro, at the opening ceremony on June 7. Held at the majestic Kien Trung Palace in Hue City, their dynamic and interactive performance will surely leave a lasting impression.

On June 9 and 10, The Double Impro will present “Dialogue” at Quoc Hoc Square in Hue. This innovative performance will see the artists pretend to meet for the first time, using dance and movement to share their stories and connect with each other and the audience in a friendly, conversational manner.

Formed in 2020, The Double Impro consists of four talented dancers who specialize in impromptu interactions with their audience, creating a unique and engaging experience. Their performances are based on spontaneous connections, making each show a one-of-a-kind event.

The Belgian group will also collaborate with three renowned Vietnamese hip-hop dance groups – Flame, Sine, and B.Nashor – for a special performance at the Tuoi Tre Theatre in Hanoi on June 23. This fusion of cultural exchange and dynamic dance styles is sure to be a memorable highlight of the festival.

With a rich 24-year history, the Hue Festival continues to evolve, bringing together a diverse array of artistic talents. This year, the festival will feature domestic artists and 12 troupes from seven countries, offering a truly global celebration of the arts.
