The Ho Chi Minh City Circus will host its inaugural gala from March 30 to April 8 at its familiar venue at 2 Pham Ngu Lao Street, District 1.
The festival will gather nearly 25 circus troupes from the Ho Chi Minh City Circus, the Vietnam Circus Federation and the Hanoi Circus. The festival will feature several acts which have earned international awards and have toured in Cuba, Italy and China.
Ngoc Anh, who is vice manager of the Ho Chi Minh City Circus, said the gala was inspired by the aspirations of circus performers nationwide, eager to gather and share their experiences and to expose their art form to wider audiences.
Organizers plan to make the gala an annual event.
