Lune Productions has previously introduced local and foreign audiences to four dance shows, namely the A O show, Lang Toi (My Village), Suong Som (the Mist), and Teh Dar.

According to Lune Production JS Company, ‘Lang Toi’ and ‘A O Show’ will be performed in Australia in February and June next year, respectively, while ‘Teh Dar’ will be on tour in France and Luxembourg from November 2018 to January 2019.

Lune Production and its partners have been developed their shows since 2012. Over the past five years, the shows were traveled to stages in 15 countries around the world.

The name ‘A O’ derives from ‘Lang Pho’, which means ‘village and city’. The show depicts the charming beauty and cultural richness of Vietnamese life in the countryside. It is a unique mix of bamboo cirque, acrobatic acts, contemporary dance, and theatrical visual art.

Lang Toi (My Village) is a delicate merge of tradition and innovation, where the poetic beauty of village life in northern Vietnam is presented through new cirque approaches. Farming and building activities, traditional games, and the general lifestyle of northern villagers are recreated by ancestral bamboo props, breath-taking cirque and acrobatics, and rhythmic dance, all to the tune of distinct folk music from more than 20 musical instruments.

Meanwhile, Teh Dar invites the audience on an adventure into the enchanting world of Vietnamese highlanders. Wild animal hunts, moonlit romance, and jungle tales of death and reincarnation are all recreated with stunning bamboo cirque, daring acrobatics, and hypnotizing melodies from exotic tribal instruments, which have been certified as cultural heritage items by UNESCO. 

The Mist tells a story of farm life in southern Vietnam, expressed through neo-classic and contemporary dance by the skilled artists. The Mist is an hour of emotion, with a myriad of ups and downs, painted by sensational live music, splendid visuals, and colorful lighting effects.
