    Second Opinion

    12:00 AM,07 December - 11:59 PM,07 January

    Manzi Art Space, 14 Phan Huy Ich St., Ba Dinh Dist., Hanoi

    Manzi Art Space and Hanoi Doclab present 'Second Opinion' - a group photography exhibition featuring works by Nguyen Thi Hue, Ha Đao, Hanh Tran, Viet Vu, Le Xuan Tien, Nguyen Duc Huy and Mai Pham.

    'The several different series of photographs presented in this exhibition were developed out of a long-term workshop experience at Hanoi DocLab and produced in 2017. Each of the photographers located a public or private landscape that held meaning for them and for a number of months explored that photographically. The projects were developed out of group critique sessions with participants sharing their works-in-progress with the others also producing their own series. It was a highly supportive, nurturing and ultimately collaborative effort.

    This is the second group exhibition of DocLab’s photography work. The first, in 2013, was called Autopsy Of Days – a title suggesting a kind of clinical examination, a post-mortem by the photographers in examining their own lives, their own time within their own city of Hanoi. In medicine, when patients receive a difficult diagnosis from a doctor and are uncertain about how to proceed with treatment, often they will get a second opinion from another medical professional in order to confirm, dispute or amend the original finding.

  • “The Bald Soprano” play

    “The Bald Soprano” play

    08:00 PM,12 - 11:59 PM,12 January

    L’Espace, 24 Trang Tien St., Hoan Kiem Dist., Hanoi

    Renowned Vietnamese stage director Tran Luc and the LucTeam troupe will perform the play “The Bald Soprano” by dramatist Eugène Lonesco in Hanoi.

    Following two widely-acclaimed plays, “Quan” (“Distraught”) by Vietnamese dramatist Long Chuong and “The Jealousy of Cinderella” (La Jalousie du Barbouillé) by French dramatist Molière at the Hanoi Opera House and L’Espace in 2017, LucTeam greets the new year of 2019 with a famous play from the Theater of the Absurd - “La cantatrice chauve” (The Bald Soprano).

    The Bald Soprano is a drama in eleven scenes and which Ionesco called an “antiplay”. It was first produced in 1950 and was published in 1954 as La Cantatrice chauve. The title can also be translated as “The Bald Prima Donna”. The one-and-a-half-hour play, an important example of the Theater of the Absurd, consists mainly of a series of meaningless conversations between two couples that eventually deteriorate into babbling.

    Tickets range from VND300,000 ($13) to VND500,000 ($21) and VND150,000 ($6.5) for students and members of L’Espace, available at the entrance of L’Espace. Online bookings are available at ticketbox.vn .
