Cultura Fish has achieved prize from TechCul Initiative
The idea of creating Cultura Fish was sparked in the beginning of 2020, but not until the end of the year that our team was officially formed and active in UNESCO’s competition TechCul Initiative.
TechCul’s competition is geared towards individuals or organisations that apply technology to preserve intangible cultural assets during the context of covid, and if you view the video’s title below then you must recognise which theme we enrolled under! We signed up to the competition with the project “Hát Bội 101”- bringing hát bội into contemporary life with the help of technology”. Going through a list of 443 competitors from 34 different countries, Cultura Fish has achieved ICHCAP ichLinks Prize.

After the competition (January, 2021), based on the content foundation, Cultura Fish has planned to organise demo classes of Hát Bội 101, went on field trips, composing content for “telling tuồng” series, and also brewing more ideas in the future to bring “hát bội” as well as its beautiful value to the people who appreciate from the past, future, and present.
We would like to invite you to watch the video “Hát Bội 101” that Cultura Fish used to compete in the TechCul competition back in January, 2021.
As of today, Cultura Fish has only started its first steps on this long journey ahead. Looking back on our two years of formation and progress, Cultura Fish has slowly grown through each of our projects.
As an effort to have a full picture about The Southern Gem, Cultura Fish had the opportunity to meet and interview with the director of The Hát Bội Theatre of Hồ Chí Minh city, mister Võ Hồ Hoàng Vũ, he was also the art director of the program.
During the years of 2017-2018, there were many activities, projects, and programs that focus on hát bội, where it aimed to revive the art of hát bội upon various mediums and perspectives, the resurgence came up like an exciting wave of vitality for this long forgotten art to be born again.
