Australian Poet: Shen Yun Has ‘Wonderful Poetry About It’

January 27, 2018

“I think it’s a very, very impressive, wonderful poetry about it. Everything from the costuming, to the music, to the storylines, and the pure beauty of the dancing is just breathtaking. As I say, so far it seems to be one part of a gigantic poem. It’s beautiful.”

“I just keep coming back to the notion of poetry. The embroidery, the detail, even from a bit of a distance, it’s quite clear the craftsmanship that’s gone into the costumes. It’s just wonderful, absolutely wonderful.”

“I’m aware of the metaphysical and spiritual background that China does have, I’m very aware of that and it’s embodied beautifully in some of the little vignettes—very well done and that spiritual dimension does come through very clearly.”

“I must say that the thousands and thousands and thousands of years that are involved in China’s civilisation, that came across as well. It’s breathtaking to me that this kind of a program cannot be seen in China.”
