The dancers in Đẹp are nude for a purpose.
Fragile and vulnerable, their nudity literally strips them bare.
The movement invites the audience to let go, reaching ever closer to the feeling of being alive. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England. Winner of the Asian Arts Award for Best Directing 2018.
“The living need light and the dead need music” Vietnamese proverb Đẹp is the Vietnamese word for beautiful. With his latest dance work, the UK based choreographer Dam Van Huynh explores influences from his South East Asian heritage.
