The festival was co-organised by the Vietnam Stage Artists' Association and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism’s Performing Arts Department to create an opportunity for Vietnamese theatre artists to exchange experience and learn from their foreign peers.

People’s Artist Trinh Thuy Mui, President of the Vietnam Stage Artists’ Association, said that the festival aims to improve art quality as well as encourage innovation and creativity in the country’s theatre art, adding that experiential theatre will contribute to meeting the taste of the audience in the integration process.

At the last edition, 21 plays were staged by 14 troupes from host Vietnam and seven others from Hungary, Israel, India, the Republic of Korea, China, Singapore, and Greece. Four plays from Vietnam and Israel won the gold medals./.
