Whatever you do, if you have the opportunity to attend a Lune Production – Lune Cirque – do not miss it. The shows are genuinely world class in music and energetic, dramatic performance.
Lune Production has created an amphitheater in Hoi An that stages very Vietnamese shows which draw from the Cirque du Soleil tradition.
Their shows Teh Dar, AO Show, Lang Toi and Palao reflect deep-rooted aspects of Vietnamese culture and folklore, often drawing on everyday activity that stretches back thousands of years. Inspiration is found in the hunter gatherer hill tribes who still inhabit the most remote mountainous areas of Vietnam.
Each Lune production tells its story through music and dance. Meanwhile mesmeric acrobatics and juggling oscillate between gentle rolling rhythms and abrupt heart-stopping moments.
AO Show opens 3 July, 2020 and run for the rest of the year in Hoi An.

A O Show
The A O Show depicts the charming beauty and cultural richness of Vietnamese life in the countryside and contrasts it with the nations’s racing urbanization. The production is a unique mix of bamboo cirque, acrobatic acts, contemporary dance, and theatrical visual art. Beautiful and very funny too.
