Duo Pham Thi Huong and Truong Hong Thuy claimed gold for their performance “Du Son” (Red Swing) at the 2022 International Circus Festival in Saratov.
According to Tong Toan Thang, deputy director of the Vietnam Circus Federation, the performance by the two female artists was roundly applauded by the event’s Board of Jury for the harmony between music, costumes, and accessories, as well as their skillful performance techniques.
The award helped to affirm the talent and strong position of Vietnamese circus art within the international arena, he said, adding that it will also serve as motivation for domestic circus artists as they continue to develop the art.
Meanwhile, Khanh Huyen brought home bronze in the “Without Borders” International Circus Festival held in Sankt-Petersburg.
Thang noted that this is the first time that the Vietnamese artist has performed abroad, and she greatly impressed judges and nearly 2,000 spectators in attendance thanks to her outstanding aerial silk performance.
Following the good result, Huyen was invited to attend the Girona International Circus Festival due to be held in early 2024.
