Loop by Xuan Le.

The six dances will be Random Cubic by Baydanc Group, Than by Nguyen Duy Thanh, Into The Well by Vu Ngoc Khai, FeMale by James Sutherland, Loop by Xuan Le and Multidimensional by Huy Tran.

On June 28, festival-goers will see performances of Random Cubic, Than and Into The Well.

Baydanc, which created Random Cubic, is a group of artists including dancers and traditional musicians. The dance is inspired by cardboard and sticky materials like tape and rice. Over the course of 30 minutes, the dancers use improvised movements to create blocks from the materials.

Than was inspired by the traditional Vietnamese art form tuong and takes its style from the body language of its performers. The dancer builds the background and how the story continues depends on the audience.

Into The Well will be performed with Tay Son battle drum-inspired music.

Khai currently works at Konzert Theatre Bern in Switzerland. Last year, he won first prize at the International Ayang Young Choreographer Competition in the Republic of Korea.

FeMale by Scottish choreographer James Sutherland will be performed by dancers Vittoria Carpegna, Camilla Marcati and Davide Degano. The piece opens on June 30 and centres around the characters' relationships.

French-Vietnamese dancer Xuan Le will perform his first solo piece entitled Loop. Le was the champion of France's Slalom League in 2009 and ranked sixth at the Slalom World Series in freestyle the same year.

Loop will combine freestyle slalom and dance. The audience will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the artistic and poetic imaginary world.

A group of dancers will perform Multidimensional choreographed by Huy Tran. The dance offers the audience different perspectives on one choreography.
