Choreographer Says Shen Yun Is Special

“There’s a lot special about it, … the thing that I enjoyed the most was I think the understanding of shape and color culturally is very beautiful in Chinese culture. So even the texture of fabric—they understand how to organize the movement of fabric into specific shapes and colors.”
 

“That’s one of the highlights of what we saw today, really understanding how the color and shape of these props and costumes can kind of make an entire dance … it was beautiful! I had a great time.”
 

“You’re getting a piece of—not just a piece of history, but also a piece of humanity. I think you get to better understand the culture of China, and I guess the people as well, to see where their craft has gone, and where their artistic expression—because all art is, is expressing real life—and I think you get a little dose of real life when you watch it.”
