Temple of Literature to host flower-inspired ao dai festival

HA NOI (VNS) — Veteran artists symbolising Vietnamese beauty will perform in a festival to be held at Van Mieu–Quoc Tu Giam (Temple of Literature) from March 1 to 4.
The festival aims to honour female beauty on International Women's Day this March 8. Nineteen designers from all over Vietnam will present their latest collection of ao dai (traditional women dress) inspired by flowers.
"Each flower has its own meaning. Designers chose a flower for their ao dai collection themselves to express their respect for women," designer Minh Hanh said.
"At this festival, people will see collections designed for all people, including mature women and men, children, and the disabled," Hanh said.
Ha Noi-based designer Do Trinh Hoai Nam has chosen the antigone flower for his 20-design collection. The Antigone Flower collection is made of silk, tussore and taffeta, with patterns of flowers and butterflies.

Review: Shedding Skins in Motus's Genre-Blurring 'MDLSX' at La MaMa
Earlier works such as “Alexis. A Greek Tragedy” (inspired by Sophocles’ “Antigone”) and “Nella Tempesta” (a riff on Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”) threw classical texts into the crucible of the politically combustible 21st century to see what new textures old standards might assume.
Devices as ancient as theater itself were combined with newfangled technology, and centuries-spanning language seemed to be run through a blender. Ms. Calderoni memorably appeared in both works. She was a fiery (and inflammatory) Antigone in “Alexis,” and in “Nella Tempesta,” she was perfectly cast as the shape-shifting sprite Ariel.
Her presence in “Tempesta” caused the friend who saw it with me to ask afterward, in wonder, “But what is she?” No doubt many other theatergoers posed the same query, at least to themselves, and “MDLSX” might be regarded as Motus’s and Ms. Calderoni’s response.
This performer serves as onstage D.J., camera operator and quick-change costumer as well as the star of a work that mixes autobiography, academic discourse, a jukebox of cool rock numbers and descriptions of life as a hermaphrodite from Jeffrey Eugenides’s celebrated novel “Middlesex” (2002). Home movies figure in the mise-en-scène, as does a recording of an interview with the gender theorist Paul B. Preciado.
A circular screen hangs from the right rear of the stage, on which are projected images of flowers blooming via time-lapse photography, dissolving landscapes and, most important, Ms. Calderoni. We see her both as a clean-scrubbed, boyish adolescent (being asked by her unseen mother about what she wants out of life) and as the platinum-maned punk god she is today, as she trains a tiny camera on herself.
A monologue — spoken in Italian with English supertitles — finds Ms. Calderoni making lyrical statements about the inadequacy of the vocabulary we have to work with. “I’d like to have a word for ‘the happiness’ that attends disaster,” she says, or for “the hatred of mirrors that begins with middle age.” Or, she adds, “for a girl who’s always been taken for a boy.”
These statements become more than essayistic whenever Ms. Calderoni moves, often to music from the likes of the Smiths, Vampire Weekend, R.E.M. and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Her body is as slender as a grass snake’s, and she sheds clothes — leggings, T-shirts, underpants — as if she were molting. Even stark naked, with a camera taking medical in...

Syrian family dreams of opening chocolate shop in Antigonish
There was a tearful reunion at the Halifax airport Thursday night as Antigonish's first Syrian family arrived after two days of travel.
The Hadhad family was greeted first by their son, Tareq, who arrived three weeks earlier.
"This is the first time for the whole family to travel by planes," he said of their long journey. "It must be great experience."
There were also more than a dozen people from the community at the airport who held signs and presented the family with flowers. The group Syria-Antigonish Families Embrace spent months fundraising. Their efforts were so successful, they're expecting three families to arrive this year.
"We've been building up the anticipation for this for several months," said SAFE co-founder Tanya Felix. She said the group has been studying Arabic to make sure they could speak to the newest members of their community.
"This is a really good day for Tareq and the Antigonish community."
As the Hadhad family arrived, the SAFE members sang a traditional Arabic song. It didn't take long for the tears to start to fall.
