(KPL) From Nov 18-27, the France-Laos festival will open its doors for a ten-day exceptional events honoring the richness of cultural creation and the precious nature of intercultural dialogue.

‘’The event will feature the richness of heritage, art activities, and modern culture, creative activities as well as France’s innovation industry including the art of French living such as French cuisine has been registered as an UNESCO World Heritage List’’, said French Ambassador Siv-Leng Chhuor at press conference on Nov 10 at the Residence of the French Embassy, held by the French Embassy and the French Institute of Laos.  

‘’This reputation is as a good luck, but we must know how to protect it because the cultures of the world are becoming more and more similar. In order to maintain the reputation and attractiveness of culture and the French language as a language used by many countries around the world, France established cultural networks and becomes one of the world's leading cultural networks with more than 950 French Institutes or French language Centers and one of the world's leading educational networks with 545 French schools in 138 countries’’.

The opening ceremony will be held at the National Culture Hall and all activities will then celebrate at the French Institute in Vientiane.

The activities include classical music, pop rock, world music, cinema, puppet show, theater, visual arts, all artistic disciplines mingle and meet through the whole week and last day of festival Lao fashion week will be organised at Parkson.

The same goes for the artists: internationally renowned pianists Maxime Zecchini and David Bismuth will share the stage with the Vientiane Chamber Orchestra, the young singer Sun will respond to the words of Blackeyes and NU innovation, the students of the National Institute of Fine Arts will pay tribute to Marc Leguay and Thiane Khamvongsa to the inevitable Molière.

Just like the work of the famous French comedian and dramaturge, born 400 years ago, who saw in theater and comedy a path to education for all, the Festival France-Laos is also a place of discovery, learning, encounters, and inspiration that enables artists to share their worldview with their spectators.

Under Tô's gaze, the baskets of sticky rice will become the central characters of the new adventures of Khaô Niew's puppets. Bruno le Matelot will portray the details of his daily life in Laos with colors and imagination. The director Kiyé Simon Luang will rediscover the path of his roots through his cinematographic work and will present for the first time in Laos his film Good Bye Mr Wong.

The Festival France-Laos 2022 will close this first year of festival by celebrating the exemplary cooperation between the Lao Fashion Week, the famous French fashion school ESMOD and the French Embassy in Laos which allows each year several young Lao designers to benefit from a training program of excellence in France.
