Artist Amazed by Shen Yun’s Colors and Backdrop

“It’s beautiful, very talented. The [fabric], especially on the women’s dresses, is beautiful. And the colors are just amazing. The music—it was more than I expected.”

“The flowing [fabric] adds to the dance. Especially the women—it looks like they are floating across the floor instead of walking. … I have never seen anything like it.”

“It was really neat how they did [the animated backdrops], especially how they walk off the stage, back on the screen, and on the stage. … I was expecting just a static backdrop, but instead, the backdrop was interactive with the rest of the dancers. So it made it more exciting to watch.”

“I didn’t know a lot about the Chinese culture. All these stories that were told during the whole performance–so now I’m better educated toward the culture.”

“[Shen Yun] is something different like nothing you’ve seen before.”

“It is amazing. It’s a birthday gift for my middle sister. Her birthday is on the second and we wanted to do something different for her. Last year we saw an advertisement and she said she’d like to go, so we’ve been planning ever since. Quite a long time.”
