The festival, which was initiated by Singapore-based Odyssey Theatre (ODT) in 2004, has been held in many countries such as South Korea, Thailand, Italy, and Germany.

The event in Vietnam, co-organised by ODT and the city-based Saigon Contemporary & Ballet Dance Company (SCBC), aims to create a platform for Vietnamese and international choreographers and dancers to meet and share their skills, as well as introduce their new works to audiences in the region and the world.

The festival will feature two dance pieces including Paint the Galaxy by Singaporean choreographer Danny Tan on Thursday and Mau (Mother) by Vietnamese choreographer Ha Thanh Hau on Friday.

After the performances in HCM Ctiy, the two dance pieces will be brought to the DanzINC festival in Singapore from this weekend.

The DanzINC festival will take place at 7pm at the Renaissance Riverside Hotel Saigon, 15 Ton Duc Thang, District 1.
