Seventy percent of Vietnamese live in rural areas, spending their days tending rice fields, visiting temples and preparing for early morning market.


The Mist portrays Vietnamese farming life through contemporary dance (select performance dates in 2015). We asked some of the dancers to take their moves from the Saigon Opera House stage to the countryside, the source of the show’s inspiration.

We then challenged them to express the beauty of daily urban life in dance, with the posh Saigon Domaine Luxury Residences, winner of the 2014 World Luxury Hotel awards for Luxury Suite Hotel (Vietnam), as the backdrop. What they showed us is that wherever you live, there is beauty in the everyday.
