Business Owner (Retired) Appreciates the Cultural Expression in Shen Yun

“I enjoy the dance especially the poses reminds me of the martial art … So I find it’s also educational because of the poses.”

“[Using] the culture—to explain the message to an audience, they [the audience] are getting the message through a cultural expression.”

“As practicing Christian I would see a different place from what I see here—is that many of the tenets are very important for giving the peace in the world.

“The People’s Republic [of China] requires everybody to have one message, and that message is the communist party. So not only is Falun Gong persecuted, but also Christian churches and houses churches that are persecuted. And it’s all, basically, is about control. So anybody—[who] has another philosophy or practices another discipline, or another religion, the spiritual religion, is frowned upon.”
