Kobalt Works

Hanoi Stardust

HANOI STARDUST is a collaboration by Arco Renz | Kobalt Works with the Vietnam National Opera Ballet (VNOB) and independent performers Nguyen Duy Thanh and Khai Ngoc Vu.

The performance presents a vigorous and vibrant encounter with two global dance languages: classical ballet and street dance. Created in the context of a dynamic and youthful Vietnamese society, Hanoi Stardust is an invitation to discover and move perspectives.

Hanoi Stardust will be performed during Zürcher Theater Spektakel​ in August 2016.
