AN EVENT DEDICATED TO THE PERFORMING ARTS AVAILABLE TO ALL AGES
Since its first edition at La Cinémathèque in May 2015, the P.A.S Festival takes place every year in different theaters in the city of Hanoi: Nhà hát Kịch Việt Nam (Vietnam National Drama Theatre), Nhà hát Nhạc Vũ Kịch Việt Nam (Vietnam Opera and Ballet Theatre)... The purpose of the P.A.S Festival is to create a place and a time for multicultural artistic exchange between the various actors of the performing arts present in Vietnam and Southeast Asia.
For 10 days, improvisation matches, theatre plays, music, and dance performances will be brought together, either created in Hanoi or elsewhere, presented by children, teenagers, adults and ideally for a large audience.
Since 2020, the P.A.S is made up of 3 main events:
- The first weekend, called Kid P.A.S, is for all children under 12 years old.
- The second weekend, called TeenAdult P.A.S, is for everyone from 12 years old to adult.
- In between these two weekends, the Street P.A.S invites the audience to come and enjoy the show in many extraordinary places.
The majority of the shows are available in Vietnamese, English and French to better serve the primary objective of the festival: the mixing of a large public, the meeting and the cultural exchanges through the artistic practice.
2022 – THE YEAR OF RENEWAL
And yes, since 2019, the P.A.S. Festival has remained mostly digital but this year we are planning it “almost” as usual. At last, we will be able to do the entire festival: Kids P.A.S / Street P.A.S / TeenAdult P.A.S. This year, P.A.S is going to travel. We will start at ATH, then the Street P.A.S will take us to cultural places that have held up during these times of crisis, and afterwards, we will return to Nhà hát Nhạc Vũ Kịch Việt Nam (Vietnam Opera and Ballet Theatre).
On top of that, this year, ATH is approaching different cultural centres in Hanoi to support artistic initiative and reinforce the idea that art is indispensable for our society, whether by consuming or practising it.
The P.A.S is also ATH classes end of year festival, a moment where we will all meet, to share what we have been practising and show to our relatives the productions created during the year.
