Two performances by Vietnamese artists have won the Silver Medal and the Audience’s Choice award at the recent international Golden Circus in Rome, Italy.
According to Vu Ngoan Hop, director of the Viet Nam Circus Federation, the performance of Vietnamese artists in a large wheel, involving Nguyen Duc Thanh, Tran Hong Hao, Phan Van Chien and Nguyen Duc Tai, won the Silver Medal, while another performance with frames by Nguyen Duc Thanh won the Audience’s Choice award.
The 32nd edition of the festival was held in Rome from December 21 to January 14, with artists from 12 countries and territories, including Kazakhstan, Hungary, China and France, besides Spain, participating in it.
All six artists from Viet Nam were from the Ha Noi-based Viet Nam Circus Federation. Hop was a jury member.
The jury awarded two gold and two silver medals, and a copper medal. In 2013, Vietnamese artists, participating in the festival for the first time, won a gold medal at the event.
