(VOVworld) - More than 200 performers, aged 27 and less, will compete in the Vietnam-Laos-Cambodia Young Circus Talent Contest held at the Vietnam Circus and Vaudeville School in Hanoi this year. Six circus teams, including four from Vietnam, one from Laos and one from Cambodia, will bring to the competition 34 circus acts from December 8-12. The 2015 competition is expected to help strengthen solidarity and ties between the three countries, head of the Department of Performing Arts Nguyen Dang Chuong said. It also provides an opportunity for young performers in the region to learn from each other for the development of the arts, he added. Gold and silver medals will be presented to most outstanding individuals and groups of performers while the judges also pick out the best director and the best coach.
