CHICAGO—Heralding the colors of pink, green, orange, yellow in its costumes and backdrops, Shen returns to Chicago to uplift and inspire its residents.
Bozema Drzytek, architect from Chicago said, “The show was beautiful especially the colors. I just thought of spring the whole time because we've been in such a gray city for so many months and it just opened my senses. It was just gorgeous.”
“As an architect I take things visually, so the colors and the flexibility of the bodies of the dancers impressed me the most,” said Ms. Drzytek.
Shen Yun’s mission is to bring life to the many folk tales and legends of China, but to also reflect on its moral ideals of the last 5,000 years.
Ms. Drzytek was most impressed with Shen Yun’s overall presentation from the dances, singers, and orchestra.
“To be able to be exposed to the Chinese culture that was truthful. I was very grateful for that. So we enjoyed it tremendously," said Ms. Drzytek.
