"Adrift/Sheltered" @ University of Theater and Performing Arts of Hanoi

"Phiêu bạt / Nương náu" (“Adrift/Sheltered”) is a cine-concert combining screenings of black-and-white films from the 1930s backwards and live music performance. It revolves around the themes and concepts of "home", “shelter”, "family" or overall a “comfort zone”. As human beings, we are bound to our families, and it is especially the case in the Eastern culture, where "family" or "home" is often the top priority and a sacred connection. However, being separate individuals, we always want to set ourselves free from the shadow of such protection and shelter – the "comfort zone" that has always embraced us and provided us with security.

The movies to be screened in this project are from the Asian and European film industries, namely documentaries, and archives of movies with expired copyrights. The live music will bring a breath of fresh air to these vintage motion pictures, with electronic soundscapes, spatially evocative compositions as well as sounds that compliment the movies with novel nuances in the journey to rediscover the meaning of “home”.

“Phiêu bạt/Nương náu" (“Adrift/Sheltered”) is developed and curated by Marilyn Phạm Dacusin, the Head Organizer of Empathy Museum Vietnam, alongside with the artists.
The project receives support from British Council Vietnam, Embassy of Italy in Vietnam and L'espace.

“Adrift/Sheltered" is a part of IN PROGRESS (a series that is initiated and supported by British Council Vietnam)
