Being the first international festival of contemporary dance in Vietnam and has been running for over 5 years now, the dance festival is setting the bars higher than ever before. The event this year will be highlighted with a performance between German choreographer Riki von Falken and Vietnamese artist Nguyen Trinh Tri and will depict the rapidly fading traditions and old culture of Hanoi.
