Art & Performance

It’s more than JUST the music.

The visual and immersive elements of Quest Festival are valued just as highly as the music.

Each year we curate a sensory wonderland, dreaming up immersive environments for you to explore.

The Art & Performance program encompasses four key elements – stage decor, installations, workshop and healing, and performance art.

Stage Decor

Our creative team consistently raises the bar in terms of what is able to be achieved with stage environments in Vietnam. WIth a strong focus on using sustainable materials and utilizing indigenous Vietnamese woods, the stage decor reflects the unique nature of the festival, and its place within Vietnam as a cultural highlight.

Art & Decorations

We strongly encourage exploration of the whole site and discovery of the many installations outside of the stage arenas. Peruse an outdoor, suspended art gallery or enjoy lazing in a hammock as you watch the day slip by. These are just the adventures we have planned for you.

Workshops & Healing

Indulge your yoga cravings, learn how to master the art of fire spinning, try your hand at improv comedy. Create your own feather earings or design and construct your own crochet mandala. Whatever your interests or passions, Quest is sure to help you nurture them.

Performance & Art

All of these will appear at random throughout the weekend, and when you least expect it. Aerialists, actors, fire spinners, stilt walkers, comedians, and other roving performers will add magic and energy to your experience.

Through the dances, participants can find the way to relax their bodies and minds.

 

 

Capoeira

Capoeira includes many different elements. Music, singing, and call and response like chanting are a part of the history. The formation of the roda is part of the ritual of capoeira. The roda is where the players come into a circle. An ensemble of musicians, or the bateria, is positioned at the head of the circle with at least three people in the front playing music/leading the songs. Everyone in the circle claps and two players will jump in to “fight” or “spar”.
