The Hanoitimes - From September 16 to 17, international artists from Sun World Ba Na Hills arts troupe will present an unprecedented, unique, street carnival in the pedestrian streets around Hoan Kiem Lake, in Hanoi.
As many as 86 artists from Europe, including instrumentalists, singers, dancers, acrobats, jugglers, fire dancers and clowns, will perform in colourful and impressive clothing to stir the space around Hoan Kiem Lake.
Hanoians enjoy the first international carnival in walking street.
Accordingly, during the two days of the carnival, artists will perform from 10am to 12pm and from 7pm to 9pm per day. Four drum artists, 18 skilled instrumentalists, dancers and beautiful European models will attract audiences and visitors to join in with the passionate street dances and music.
During the breaks, Hanoi audiences will be able to enjoy performances of fire dancing, jolting, juggling and acrobatics. Children will have a chance to meet the beautiful princesses and handsome princes like in the fairytales.
In addition, the swordplay artists will reproduce the spectacular swordplay scenes from the famous movie entitled ‘Three Musketeers’. The international arts carnival will be the largest-scale street art event, with the participation of the most international artists, ever to be held in Hanoi.
The event is also the first programme among a series of exciting activities that the Hanoi People’s Committee, in collaboration with Sun Group, will regularly organise at the pedestrian streets around Hoan Kiem Lake, contributing to attracting more visitors to the capital.
The Hanoi walking street model, which was piloted since the beginning of September 2016, has created a new space for cultural activities and entertainment for both locals and international visitors to the capital city. Vehicles are not allowed from 7PM all the way Friday night until Sunday midnight.
