Vietnamese Bamboo Circus. Asia Topa. Art Centre Melbourne.February 27, 28 and 29 - 2020
Haunting and scenic, accessible and engaging this amazing Vietnamese Circus, directed by Taun Le, played to very full houses at the State Theatre. It is such a treat sitting in amongst and audience with children giggling and older Vietnamese chatting excitedly about what they are watching.
We are treated to the seamlessly choreographed (Nguyen Tan Loc) ground and aerial work of a troupe of 16 exceptional acrobats, of whom, I think, 5 are women. This team is sublimely in-sync.
