According to Tong Toan Thang, deputy director of the Vietnam Circus Federation, the performance of the two female artists was highly evaluated by the event's Board of Jury for the harmony between music, costumes, accessories as well as skillful performance techniques.
The award showcases the talent and position of Vietnam's circus art in the international arena, he said, adding that it is also a motivation for domestic circus artists to continue to work for the development of their art.
The 2022 International Circus Festival was held from Saturday to Wednesday in Russia with the participation of delegations from nine countries.
This year's edition is exclusively for female circus artists.
