About the piece
It tells about the pleasure and the pains of three women in the life, when they make access to the Buddhism just like he children do with parents to have peace in mind, getting rid of the disorders.
The 50-minute performance is both an interaction and series of improvisations between traditional musical instruments (monochord, plucked zither, membranephones and the Ả Đào – tally card song) on the background of modern instruments (electronic instruments, laptop and piano). Musically, the work is composed based on the improvisations that feature the Vietnamese music and the chant poems accompanied by the piano sounds.
Cõi Vắng (Empty World) may be regarded as a product of the interaction between the traditional music and the contemporary one, or the New Tradition; also a kind of improvisation-based performance.
Architecture: Film “Great Expectations” of the Club of Architecture Cinema
The film, directed by Jesper Wachtmeister, gives us a voyage to the detached housed, resident buildings and the towns designed by architects Le Corbusier, Oscar Niemeyer, Buckminster Fuller, Antti Lovage, Moshe Safdie, Jacque Fresco… and the architecture firms such as Archigram, Superstudio. These are typical examples for the products of which the architect is the “conductor of an orchestra” who has the full power of decision. Another issue is placed by the film: Has the architectural identity to be based on the traditional elements ? and should we look for an architectural “shape” to match such identity ? Please come to watch the film and discuss with the Club of Architecture Cinema.

The irreversible trend of our era is characterized by the universal multicultural contexts where systems of values are getting in move, impacts, interference in large intensities. Paintings, music, movies, literature, sciences and technology etc. have been regarded as means to embody the human beings in historical and social contexts. But the boundary between these arts seems more and more imprecise. The utmost creativity together with capability of spatial, temporal and mind management has been opening multidirectional doors to the new horizons of cognition. The creativity has permanently dialoguing and challenging the cognitive ability of the beneficiaries of arts, also their enjoyment, then bring them new abilities and needs.
In this new cycle of development, Heritage Space appears as a niche of multi-sector individuals and groups with an expectation to the link between the various and new elements of creativity in the contemporary Vietnam.
