TAINAN, Taiwan—Among the audience of the Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company's performance in Tainan on April 13 was Xie Yongtian, a professional calligrapher and instructor. Full of praise for Shen Yun, he said, “"It’s beyond all expectations. The beauty is beyond any description. A manifestation of China’s 5,000 years of civilization, with the help of modern technology. It is really remarkable!
Xie Yongtian further expressed his admiration for Shen Yun. “Divine arrival in the human world that only Shen Yun can present. The descent of sublime grace through Heaven’s gate.
“I think everyone must see it, absolutely beyond expectations. Divine power goes beyond time and space, a heavenly world brought to Earth again,” he said.
Particularly impressed with one scene of an emerging tsunami in the final dance The Opening of Heaven’s Gates, Xie Yongtian said, “Faced with the coming of a tsunami, humans are vulnerable and helpless. ‘Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance’ has the power to hold back the roaring waves, the power being the might of divinity.”
He added, “This is the greatest performance I have ever watched in my life. I will certainly attend it annually, recommending Shen Yun to my family and friends, and even to everyone around me. I haven’t seen anything better than Shen Yun. It is unparalleled.”
Mrs. Xie also shared her experience of Shen Yun. “The Shen Yun performance is a kind of otherworldly beauty; the beauty presented through costumes and dancers’ movements is a reminder of heavenly realms. The arrangement of programs presents both masculinity and femininity, both peacefulness and sensation.”
Xie Yongtian has received Academic Contribution Awards for ROC Contemporary Art Celebrities and the Golden Award of World Literary Achievement.
