A collaboration between the AO Show and local dance company, Arabesque, The Mist, depicts the cycles of Vietnamese rural life. Choreographer Nguyen Tan Loc has brought together contemporary dance sequences (a rarity in Vietnam) with scenes, objects, and aesthetics that are unequivocally Vietnamese. The performance focuses on daily life in the countryside, like going to the market, husking rice, and tending to the rice fields. Unlike the AO Show Saigon, The Mist caters to a more mature audience and is performed accompanied to live contemporary music.
It includes the following scenes:

  • Going to the fields: Farmers go to the area in the early morning.
  • Pagoda’s fragrance: A religious space of Vietnamese culture.
  • Night: A storm of sentiments and the innermost feelings of wisdom.
  • Harvest Time: The joy of a bumper crop
  • Silk: The love and desire of a farmer couple.
  • Rice: The fruit of the farmers’ hard work

Some of the best moments during the show are the ones that involve the audience. For instance, visitors are given wooden clappers (commonly used to stir rice) to join in the festivities during scenes of celebration. Sometimes the dancers even move the performance from the stage to the auditorium seats.
