From September 7th to 15th, the 7th Francophonie Games took place in Nice, France with the participation of nearly 3,000 athletes and artists from 50 Francophone countries.
Vietnam delegation with 14 athletes and artists participated in 3 activities, including puppetry, athletics and photography. Haiphong Puppet Theatre took charge of Vietnam delegation to compete in puppet performance.
As disclosed by Meritorious Artist Ngo Kim Loan, Director of Haiphong Puppet Theatre, Haiphong delegation would perform an act in the drama “Melody of Memory”. This program had previously won the Gold Medal in the International Puppet Festival held in Hanoi.
“It is an honour when the act is chosen. This is a typical act of Vietnamese folk art with stylized manner using puppets with simple and non-aestheticized faces. Through moves of puppets, the audience will understand the whole story,” Loan said.
