Update: Jul 27, 2012
HCM City's well-known Rong Vang (Golden Dragon) Water Puppetry Troupe will take part in the Kijimuna Festa 2012 in Japan from July 28 to August 6.

This is the second time Rong Vang has been invited to perform at the Kijimuna Festa, Japan's most prestigious and popular theatre festival for children.

The troupe participated in the festival for the first time in 2009, two years after it was founded in HCM City.

Kijimuna Festa is organized annually in Okinawa, featuring theatrical arts of Japan and other countries.

This year, the festival will be held in Okinawa and Tokyo, with the participation of troupes from 30 Asian and European countries.

Rong Vang will also perform at an international meeting of the International Association of Theatre for Children and Young People (ASSITEJ) due to be held in Okinawa at the same time as the Kijimuna Festa.
