TAIPEI, Taiwan—On the evening of Feb. 20, Shen Yun Performing Arts Touring Company presented its first performance at the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei on the first leg of its tour in Taiwan. Among the audience were Peng Yuxiang, president of Sage Biotechnology Co., Ltd., and his wife. The couple were full of praise for Shen Yun. Mr. Peng said in delight, he believed watching Shen Yun could bring people blessings.
“The dancing movements are not easy to perform. They involve a great degree difficulty,” said Mr. Peng, full of admiration for the dance and a high level of dancing skills demonstrated by the Shen Yun performers.
He also marveled at the authenticity of classical Chinese dance presented by the New York-based Shen Yun. “Incredible! They (Shen Yun) are neither from China, nor based in Taiwan, but from the United States. It’s incredible for them to achieve such a high level of excellence.”
In their interview the couple said that they were much impressed with the divinely inspired Chinese culture they saw depicted.
Mr. Peng said the divinely inspired show made him reflect on the origin of life. “Is it really so? Are we from the heavenly realms?” Though there was no fixed answer to this question, Mrs. Peng added. Divine protection of kind-hearted people depicted in the dance programs “enables humans to feel more at ease in this human world, more self-possessed, rather than pessimistic, in the face of challenges.”
As part of management of a company, Mr. Peng felt somewhat disappointed about the current international relationships, tensions and conflicts between management and employees. But he was much attracted by the compassion, sincerity, and tolerance conveyed by the Shen Yun programs. The couple said unanimously that Shen Yun brought them joy, happiness, peace, and even “an amazing surprise.”
Shen Yun was recommended to him by his friend who told him that watching Shen Yun could bring him blessings, Mr. Peng said. After feasting his eyes on the Shen Yun performance, Mr. Peng agreed: “I believe watching Shen Yun can bring people blessings.”
