"Mein Vietnam" is a project about Vietnamese identities across borders. This is a cooperation of the Goethe-Institut Vietnam & the literary online magazine Zzz Review.
Four second-generation Vietnamese writers from the Czech Republic, Germany, France and the US, and five young authors from the North and the South of Vietnam write short plays of five minutes length on what Vietnam means to them. Each piece draws upon personal experience and questions of cultural identity.
Each piece will be performed in a non-theater-space that will be recorded. The plays will be performed and filmed in the language of the respective writers. Each audio-visual recording will be subtitled in English, Vietnamese and German and placed online onto the project-landing page of the Goethe-Institut. This creates a basis for an important cultural dialogue across boundaries.
The Opening ceremony brings the interested audience the very first chance to get to know the content of 05 plays and the young talented authors of My Vietnam 2022. In addition, there will be the session to provide you with the information about our Crowdfunding campaign starting in August 2022 where you can contribute and be part of the project with many meaningful returns from our side.
