This video from the Tackling Modern Slavery in Viet Nam (TMSV) project captures the process of local artists, justice workers and community members working together in developing and staging theatre performances to raise community awareness about the risks of trafficking in persons and access to criminal justice system supporting victim. Through these interactive performances, the project also aims to motivate behavioural change and adoption of safe practices in communities most vulnerable to human trafficking across Viet Nam.
