The Hanoitimes - Vietnamese circus artists returned from the second Indochina Circus Talent Competition with eight prizes, including o­ne top prize.


The Vietnamese troupe presented six performances.

The competition, organised at the Lao National Circus in Vientiane with the participation of hundreds of artists from Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, ended last week. The first of its kind was held in Hanoi last year.

The artists from three countries competed in various performances like fire hoop spinning, juggling, women's doubles trapeze, male and female lifting and somersaulting o­n a suspended net.

The event aimed to develop the talents of young circus performers, provide them with opportunities to learn and share experiences with each other, and improve their skills to international levels, said Hoang Minh Khanh, principal of the Vietnam Circus and Variety Arts College.
