“People overcome difficulties in life; they recognize that nothing lasts forever.”  The contemporary dance Maybe Forever by Stuart and Philipp Gehmacher is a combination of singing and dancing, highlighting different sides of love.

Audiences will meet up the talented guitarist Niko from the Mute band in a new job, preparing live music for the performance, at the stage work Maybe forever (Photo: Goethe Institute)Maybe Forever is a collaboration in which the artistic worlds of two choreographers collide. The lullabies of singer-songwriter Niko Hafkenscheid accompany the pair onstage, and have them dance in a promised land. While Hafkenscheid sings of love and longing, the dance of Meg Stuart und Philipp Gehmacher describes the pain and memories of love’s end.
The former dance critic Myriam Van Imschoot prepared the dramaturgy of the performance. The Goethe Institute will present the performance to Vietnamese public free-of-charge.
The performance will visit two biggest cities of Vietnam, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. In Hanoi, it will start at 8pm June 4 at the Hanoi Opera House (1 Trang Tien street) and at HCMC Opera House (7 Lam Son Square, Dist.1) at 8pm June 8.

State leader praises Treasury’s performance

QĐND – Monday, March 29, 2010, 21:26 (GMT+7)

The State Treasury has made important contributions to helping the country overcome the economic downturn last year, said State President Nguyen Minh Triet.

Mr Triet delivered his remarks on March 28 during his working visit to the Treasury on the occasion of its 20th anniversary.

He lauded the agency’s performance over the past years, saying that the State Treasury has not only managed the State budget well but also mobilised large amounts of capital for development through issuing the Government bonds.

However, the State leader urged the State Treasury to overcome its weaknesses and timely propose proper options and policies for the country’s sustainable economic development.

The Director General of the State Treasury, Nguyen Thi Nhon, said her agency is working with taxation and customs authorities on a tax reform scheme, under which tax payers will fulfill their obligations at banks instead of State Treasury branches.

The State Treasury has so far mobilised a total of VND350 trillion from the sale of Government bonds, helping balance the State budget.
