A circus with an environmental message will open in Hanoi later this week. Its aim is to entertain and educate youngsters to mark International Children’s Day on June 1.

The performance, called An Adventure of Teu, has been organised by the Vietnam Circus Federation. It will run from May 25 to June 2 and hopes to raise awareness of environmental issues for future generations.

A circus will open in Hanoi, aiming to entertain and educate youngsters and mark the International Children’s Day on June 1.

The show features characters from popular Vietnamese fairy tales like Hang Nga and Cuoi about people who live on the moon and are suffering from air pollution caused by those who live on earth.

But there are still problems for those who live underwater, as the ocean is full of rubbish and plastic bags. The forest isn’t much better either, as trees have been cut down leaving animals desperate for help.

People’s Artist Ta Duy Anh, director of the federation, said pollution is a global issue that directly influences on our lives.

“The plot has a clear message that makes the show suitable for both children and adults,” said Anh.

Anh revealed that the show received investment in light and sound technology.

“Beside devices to release fake smoke and bubbles, we will use a 1,000 inch LED screen to help the audience understand the story in a clear and emotional way,” he said.

The performance includes acrobatics, trapeze acts, a magic show with 60 artists and magicians, many who have performed around the world.

Anh said the federation has stopped using wild animals and has sent many of former animal performers like bears and tigers to animal protection charities.

“Animal trainers now begin teaching domestic animals like pigs, cats, parrots and even buffaloes,” he said.

“It’s our great efforts to maintain the job for animal trainers and bring interesting circus acts for audiences without using wild animals,” he said.

The shows will be held at the Central Circus Theatre, 67-69 Tran Nhan Tong Street, Hanoi.
