Antigone, the first written and the last in the timeline of Sophocles’ Theban trilogy, will be delivered to the Vietnamese public by XplusX Studio in a completely new version named Antigone – Am Mu.
Taking the philosophical concept of Singularity as the main theme, XplusX Studio starts their first experiments in Immersive Theatre, to bring out a new unique theatrical experience to the audience. Freely moving between the digital discussion spaces and the performance spaces of the play, the audience can choose to focus their experience on whatever artistic activity takes place during the performance, engaging themselves in happenings both inside and outside the main flow of the play.
The premiere of Antigone – Am Mu will take place on the Discord platform. The event can only be attended using a personal computer, laptop, or tablet. The play will take place at 8 pm on 20 November.

Vietnam National Museum of History launched the exhibition themed Vietnam ceramic to mark the Vietnam Cultural Heritage Day (November 23).
The exhibition that will last until April 2022 aims to give the public an insight into the history of Vietnam ceramics
It features nearly 80 items, of which 58 from the An Bien collection while 22 others come from the museum’s collection will provide visitors with a comprehensive view of Vietnam’s pottery, from the early stage until today.
In Vietnam, the first pieces of ceramics were created around 7,000 – 8,000 years ago and pottery became popular in daily life about 4,000 years ago.
Pottery flourished the most during the 15th – 17th centuries when many craftsmen were capable of performing sophisticated techniques in making ceramics. Hai Duong’s Chu Dau village became the country’s largest pottery hub at that time, where ceramics were also made for exports. By that time, Vietnam was one of the world’s leading ceramics exporters.
Exhibition “November Touch”

The Hanoi Studio Gallery (No 13 Trang Tien Street, Hoan Kiem District) holds an exhibition entitled “November Touch” until December 5.
When the Autumn turns yellow and the winter comes along a gentle touch of cold breeze and dryness, it is the time that serves as the inspiration for the collection to welcome the “Coming Back” season after a rough ride through the pandemic.
Coming to the exhibition, visitors will have a chance to admire some typical artworks themed autumn by Hanoi-based renowned artists including Vu Dinh Tuan, Mai Xuan Oanh, Nguyen Tran Cuong, Nguyen The Hung, and Do Hiep.
