The Vietnamese company À Ố Entertainment was founded in 2012. One of their three shows, ‘À Ố Show’ (‘Ahhh! Ohhh! Show’), is directed by Tuan Le, former juggling artist and director from Le Cirque du Soleil. This 60-minute live performance of contemporary dance, theatre, visual arts, circus and acrobatics, has been played since February 2013. Choreographer Tan Loc sought to produce an aesthetic show of a great poetry. The bet was won.
A dynamic and mesmerizing depiction of the Vietnamese rural culture and its evolution through the years, under the influence of urbanization, manages to bring us to another time, another world. Clearly disoriented, the show is a pure moment of delight for us, spectators.

At the beginning of the show, the music is serene and calm, the dancers are in full possession of their faculties. But, as the play progresses, the rhythm of the drums gathers momentum, the dancers take more risks and their movements quicken, the atmosphere electrifies the audience, for our greater pleasure.
Performed at the iconic Saigon Opera House, in Ho Chi Minh, the show is now touring in Europe, both in France and Greece, until 2017. And it is definitely worth seeing it!
