Discussion: “Cai Luong Theater with Cultural Flow”.
Future of Tradition would like to invite you to attend the discussion “Cai Luong theater with cultural flow” with Meritorious Artist Dao Van Trung, Meritorious Artist Phan Ngoc Chi, Meritorious Artist Do Thuc Van, Artist Cao Dang Van, Artist Pham Thi Thuy and moderator musician SonX.
This talk is the last  in the series of events of the project,
Cai Luong was born much later than other types of traditional theater arts in Vietnam such as Tuong, Cheo. but up to now, Cai Luong still outstands with its value and position. Born and developed in the turbulent period of Vietnamese society, Cai Luong demonstrates special artistic qualities, as well as its engagement to the cultural flow of the nation.
What are the characteristics (origins, costumes, techniques of performing, among others.) of Cai Luong? What is its engagement to cultural flow, as well as to Vietnam’s historical upheavals?
Also, along with the 100-year anniversary of Cai Luong (1918 – 2018), many contemporary art works were born and inspired by this traditional art, such as Song Lang movie which is a particular case. Are such works considered part of the future of tradition? If so, what should be the reception of such works?
“Future of Tradition” is a four-month project to raise the topic about the traditional art and the application of traditional art in contemporary art practices. The project has been implemented with a series of  talks with artists/artisans from traditional art genres such as Tuong theater, Cheo theater, Cai Luong theater and contemporary artists who have been practicing with traditional materials such as Nguyen Trinh Thi, Tran Kim Ngoc, Nguyen Oanh Phi Phi, Nguyen Huy An, Nguyen Duc Phuong, Tran Luong, from the beginning of April 2019 to June 2019.
“Future of Tradition” project is sponsored by FAMLAB Fund – Heritage of Future Past – A Cultural Heritage for Inclusive Growth project under British Council in Vietnam: britishcouncil.vn
