Nguyen’s upcoming choreography is a tribute to those who lost their lives in the Vietnam War and the evening’s closing pieces will tell the story of the 1968 “Tet Offensive,” one of the largest military campaigns of the Vietnam War, and the fall of Saigon. Nguyen was 11 when Saigon fell in 1975. “The only thing I remember is I was running over a lot of dead bodies to stay away from the bombs,” Nguyen said. “They (the North Vietnamese army) were shooting people on the streets.”.
