Hanoi (VNA) – The Krossing Over Arts Festival (KOAF) 2019 will take place in Ho Chi Minh City from April 5-11 and Hanoi from April 13-21.

Themed “The Roots”, the festival will feature on a variety of disciplines from contemporary dance to other art forms such as short films, artist talks and workshops on contemporary dance.

Through the lens of performing arts and ordinary activities in artistic form, this year's shows will bring the concept of origin and growth to life.

KOAF was launched in 2017 by choreographer Sébastien Ly with support from the French Institute in Vietnam. The festival is all about crossings: between contemporary dance and other art forms, between local and international artistic approaches and between the public and artists.-VNA
