June 17, 2019
In recent years, more and more theatrical performances has been created and became accessible to a wider Vietnamese audience. However, there is still a significant gap between the number of plays targeting teenagers audience compared to all other demographic.
Seeing the need to fill in this space, Tuoi Tre Theater has decided to step in and produce plays that are tailored to the taste of teenagers. The deputy director of Tuoi Tre Theater, Mr. Nguyen Si Tien, admitted that because the taste of younger audience has become increasingly sophisticated over the years, it is very difficult to produce theatrical performances that meet the needs of the teenagers. Mr. Tien also stated the need for screenplays aimed at youths to be relevant to their lives as well as the importance of focusing on the aesthetic elements and structure in the performances.
With the view to reach a wider teenage-age audience, Tuoi Tre Theater has signed a three-year contract with Belgian delegation Wallonie-Bruxelles to invest in teen performances, Mr. Tien later added there is a possibility of inviting the director if Wallonie-Bruxelles to Vietnam in the future.
