The performances of a Cambodian troupe of 34 artists in Hanoi on October 26-30 will kick off Cambodian Culture Week in Vietnam, which aims to strengthen the bilateral relationships.

The cultural exchange is part of the Vietnam-Cambodia Solidarity Year to celebrate 45 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries, Vietnam News Agency reported Tuesday.

The traditional Cambodian "Apsara Dance" and "Pailin Pikok Dance," a ritual of the ethnic group Kula in western Cambodia, will be performed as part of the event, according to the Vietnam Performing Art Center's official website. 

The performances will take place in Hanoi on October 26 and 28 and the Mekong Delta Province of Tra Vinh on October 30.

The events are co-organized by Vietnam's Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and Cambodia's Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts.

Complimentary tickets are available at the Vietnam Performing Arts Center, 32 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, Ba Dinh District, Hanoi. 

Vietnam Culture Week was also held late last month in Cambodia's capital of Phnom Penh and northwestern province of Battambang with performances of traditional Vietnamese songs and dances, and exhibitions of Vietnamese handicrafts and porcelain.
