Van Huynh Company present Đẹp

“The living need light and the dead need music” – Vietnamese proverb

Đẹp is the Vietnamese word for beautiful. With his latest dance work, the UK-based choreographer Dam Van Huynh explores influences from his Southeast Asian heritage. In Vietnamese culture, death is also a form of rebirth. The dancers in Đẹp are nude for a purpose. Fragile and vulnerable, their nudity literally strips them bare. The movement invites the audience to let go, reaching ever closer to the feeling of being alive.
