Two famed female Japanese artists will cast spells on Vietnamese audiences, particularly kids, for the first time ever in Hanoi later this week and Ho Chi Minh City next month.

The “Zen Magic” show features several breathtaking, suspense-filled magic acts by Ai and Yuki, considered two of Japan’s “illusion queens.”

The two will perform their tricks from Friday to June 2 at the Vietnam-Russia Friendship Culture Center, located at 91 Tran Hung Dao Street, Hoan Kiem District in Hanoi, and other venues in the capital, according to the website of the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism.

The event is also meant to celebrate International Children’s Day (June 1), which is observed in many countries.

The magicians will then perform from June 6 to 22 at different venues in Ho Chi Minh City.

The Japanese illusionists, who will have around five tons of gear and props transported to Vietnam for their performances, promise to lead local audiences, especially children, into a fairly-like world and delight them with one surprise after another.

The duo will showcase their mastery and flair with diverse stunts which are packed with thrills and rich in educational significance.

The shows are being jointly organized by the Tuoi Tre (Youth) Theater; Dong Do Co., a local entertainment company; and the Japan Foundation Vietnam.
