THE HAGUE, Netherlands—Lucent Danstheater was ablaze with color as Shen Yun Performing Arts Touring Company presented China's ancient cultural heritage in classical Chinese dance and music.
The country’s divinely-bestowed heritage, laid down for mankind 5,000 years ago, has been all but lost in the past few decades under communist rule, the New York-based Shen Yun website explains.
At the April 14 show, 3-D Designer, Plant Engineer, and CEO of Plant Tech, Miguel Muñoz-Tomas was drawn to comment on the first half of the show at the interval.
"I love it, it is great. The synchronicity is fantastic—the agility, and [what] I love is the synchronicity, they move as one … they move as one," Mr. Munoz-Tomas said.
Mr. Munoz-Tomas works for a company that organizes annual conferences for the oil and gas industry, focusing on design, construction, manufacturing and security planning for new plant technologies.
As a 3-D designer, he thought Shen Yun's hi-tech backdrop scenes were very good.
"The multimedia projection is fantastic. It is seamless … ," he said explaining what seamless meant. "When you put two things together and you don't see it, without a seam, seamless. Things have been sown together and you don't see how, seamless."
Gorgeously costumed dancers, choreographed to move in synchronized patterns, dance to the ground breaking music of the Shen Orchestra’s fusion of ancient Chinese and classical Western instruments.
Mr. Munoz-Tomas was wowed by the male performers. "Those guys are very good," he added.
"I like Chinese culture; I am intrigued by the Chinese culture … ,” he concluded, having never seen anything like Shen Yun before.
