Parts of life: A scene from the Moment dance.


"It’s great for all dancers of VNOB to perform together," said dancer Luong. "Normally, there are just a few dancers in a contemporary dance. Moment by choreographer Anh is an abstract work that gives audiences different ways to think about life."

Moment was created by Anh in 2016, inspired by moments of life, the struggle for survival, and the desire for a better life.

"The life of everyone through different moments, the emotion of desire, the concerns with survival and rising aspirations like the invisible burden clinging to us," said choreographer Anh. "Sudden moments always exist in our life. Each person with their experiences and their feelings will see desire, burdens, joy and loneliness from those moments. This is idea behind Moment."
