Artist Taken Away by Shen Yun’s Colors and Flowing Costumes

January 23, 2018

“There’s a lot of structure around it. I love it. It’s fabulous. It’s flowy. I’ve wanted to come for three years, and I’m finally here, so I’m enjoying it.”

“[The use of colors and different color combinations] is amazing. … I like all of them.”

“I’ve learned a lot today. There are a lot of things that I thought came from ballet or from different forms of art [such as acrobatics and gymnastics] that I see now have come from [classical Chinese dance]. So it’s neat to see them play off each one.”

“I’m going to have some more lighter, fluid things in [my art, inspired by the performance]. Lots of color. I use a lot of color now, so I’ll use more.”

“[The costumes are] one-of-a-kind. You’re not going to see that anywhere else. … I’m just taken away with the dresses, with the performers, with the guys’ outfits. That does it for me.”

“[I would recommend the show,] 10 out of 10. If you haven’t been, you have to come. And if you’ve already been, you should come back!”
