CANBERRA, Australia—Shen Yun Performing Arts Touring Company was very well received by the audience on its opening night at the Canberra Theatre, Canberra, on Friday, Feb. 15.
The New York-based company revives the traditional 5000 year-old Chinese cultures, with stories from Chinese history depicted by classical Chinese dance and ethnic dances.
Mr. Allan Wade, a state manager of an audiovisual company, was most impressed with the visual display, he thought Shen Yun was “Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.”
“I’ve seen a lot of shows both live and animated and with puppeteers and it’s [Shen Yun] great, it’s really good.”
About the synchronization of the animated backdrop he said: “I think it’s really difficult [to do], because you have to time the music with the back video, with the dances, and that’s a big task. I’ve never seen that before, that’s very clever.” He felt the backdrop has a ‘brilliant’ future although it is great already.
Shen Yun uses state-of-the-art graphics technology to create an atmosphere that takes the audience back through 5,000 years of Chinese culture and history.
Mr. Wade had already recommended Shen Yun to family and friends before he had seen, but now after seeing it he will be telling everyone not to miss it.
“Now that I’ve seen it, it is definitely brilliant. The power of the guys, and the finesse of the girls … both the males and the females are really powerful and what great finesse! The girls, for example, in the bowl dance … they’re holding themselves really still, but their whole body was moving, yet that takes a lot of concentration, a lot of power just hold that together.”
In The Mongolian Bowl Dance dancers balance three china bowls on their heads while dancing a traditional hospitality dance, strong yet gentle with a shoulder shake.
Continuing the theme of power Mr. Wade said, “Then you’ve got the guys, of course, doing all those leaps and the girls as well, so that’s really powerful to control all of those together. So that projects power.
“Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. Recommend to everybody.” Mr. Wade concluded.
