DETROIT—Shen Yun Performing Arts graced the stage of the Detroit Opera House again on Saturday, Jan. 22. Mr. Rabin and his wife were amongst the audience.
Mr. Rabin, the owner HTI Cybernetics in Sterling Heights was born in Shanghai. He said that his family left China when he was 3, before the start of communist rule in China.
Mr. Rabin enjoyed the New York-based Shen Yun, saying “very nice, very nice, very enjoyable, very entertaining.”
Shen Yun brings 5000 years of traditional Chinese culture to the stage through ancient legends, modern stories and ethnic dances. It tells stories of high moral character and promotes purity and inner beauty.
Mr. Rabin felt that he did not have any difficulty connecting with the ancient Chinese values or even spiritual concepts in the performances. He felt that they were universal saying, “There’s a lot of similarities. When you look a little deeper, there’s a lot of similarities. There’s a lot of shared culture and common values.”
Mrs. Rabin agreed, “We’re enjoying the performance immensely! It’s really entertaining.”
Mr. Rabin's company HTI Cybernetics manufacturers automated equipment, robotics, and special machinery for automobile manufacturing. According to Mr. Rabin, they supply to Toyota, Nissan and Mercedes.
