In 2019, Vietnam Stage Artists Association co-chairs with Department of Performing Arts and Hanoi Department of Culture and Sports to organize the "4th International Experimental Stage Festival, Hanoi - 2019" in Hanoi from 4 to 13 October 2019.

"Experimental stage" is a term to refer to the pioneering of artistic movements aimed at stage renewal. Experimental stage was created with the purpose of renewing the form, exploring the cultural perception in general and theater arts in particular. The experimental stage wishes to express the difference of languages, physical performance arts and structures to create a new concept of awareness to enrich theater art language, contributing to meeting audiences’ expectations in the trend of integration and development in the era of technology 4.0.

“The 4th International Experimental Festival, Hanoi – 2019”, has been announced by the Association since November 2018 and has received enthusiastic responses from internal and international art units with 53 plays by international art troupes and 24 plays from 19 internal art units. The "Appraisal Council" (consisting of 11 members) reviewed all the DVDs of the play (or via the link) and commented on the individual feedback cards.

At the plenary session meeting, the Appraisal Council synthesized opinions from 53 international plays and selected 14 plays.
