Colors, Music, Beauty: Shen Yun’s True Art Doesn’t Disappoint

February 15, 2014

MINNEAPOLIS—Minneapolis played host to Shen Yun Performing Arts at the Orpheum Theatre, Feb. 15.

For Barbara Cohen, general manager at Radiation Protection Products, every aspect of the performance was “what I expected and it’s most beautiful.”

“The colors, the music—it’s beautiful,” she said. “The art of what they’re doing, and they work beautifully together. We were just talking—the backdrops are incredible, and how they come to life with the dancing and the interaction of it all, and it’s amazing. It’s beautiful. I’m enjoying it very much.”

Shen Yun seeks to revive 5,000 years of China’s divinely imparted culture, a culture nearly wiped out by 60 years of communist rule. Through music, dance, and a digital backdrop that extends the stage, transporting the audience to a world where heaven and earth are one, Shen Yun creates one spectacular performance, according to the company’s website.

Mrs. Cohen, who attended the performance with her husband Allen, said she also loved “the history part of it and the fairy tales and as things develop … Very nicely done.”

As a lover of the theater and the arts, Mrs. Cohen said she would definitely encourage others to attend in the future: “Just the colors, I love the textures and the colors are wonderful. And the unison that the dancers are in. Definitely the circle of my friends would enjoy it very much.”
