SameStuff Theatre is an independent experimental theatre group by 7 young artists aged 17-25, based in Hanoi, our aim is to explore and experiment different performing art techniques while using performance as means of social transformation.
Devising and performing theatrical work through integration of body movement, puppets, shadow, masks.., our work focuses on “issues without definition”, mostly those of young people. Sometimes one might not be able to define the “what” but can certainly share the “how”. We hope to use our artistic skill to bring the “how” to open dialogue, break the culture of silence, encourage reflection, sharing and learning among people.
We are probably the first independent contemporary theatre group in Vietnam. If there are other groups like us in Vietnam we are very keen to hear from them.
