Story from sand village

Proud to be an art product featuring Vietnamese culture, a pure Vietnamese story, told by Vietnamese people, “Hoi An Memories Show” is a unique artistic art program located within a cultural theme Park Hoi An.

“Hoi An memory” is considered as a big boat that takes audiences through 400 years of history of the land south of Hai Van Pass, from a coastal fishing village to a bustling commercial port of Hoi An. Visitors come here to witness the ups and downs throughout history, where cultures interfaced, an important connection point of the legendary European – Asian trade road.

Throughout this reality show is the image and sound of a woman weaving a loom. The loom is not only a typical image of Hoi An culture, the trading port area is bustling, but it also weaves the stories of the land and people here and through the endless running time.

The typical Vietnamese stories and stories are summarized through 5 performances:

The first stage is the first opening of the realm, building the village, establishing the hamlet, where people gather and multiply.

The second stage is the wedding of Huyen Tran Princess and the King of Champa, recreates the solemn, jubilant and happy marriage in the past. It is an impressive performance set against a backdrop of Champa temples, towers, and dances. 

The third is the love story of the faithful Quang wife, waiting for her husband, who is fishing far away. At night, she lit a lantern shining brightly on a bank of Hoai River, sending her earnest prayers. The light that the wife lit by the Hoai River is a sign to the husband to overcome thousands of evil waves, returning safe and sound. The scene praised the beautiful love story of the Hoi An women and many Vietnamese women in general.

The fourth is a busy, bright and colorful stage showcasing Hoi An portland in the 17th century. We will meet the English, the French, the Dutch, the Spanish, the Middle East … and many residents from all over the world, all gathered on this riverbank, turning the village into a bustling trading port. It is seen as the most prosperous time of Hoi An. 

The performance closed with images of peace, kindness and gentle beauty – Young women in long white dresses, leisurely cycling on the light route of time threads.
