YUANLIN, Taiwan—Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company’s 2011 touring performance in Taiwan has moved to Changhua County, the home of many private enterprises.
Shen Yun’s opening night on Saturday, April 16, attracted many businessmen and their families. Mr. Chen Jincheng, Chairman of Bowei Enterprise Co. Ltd., saw the show for the first time and gave it high praise.
“It is excellent! Perfect!” he said.
The New-York-based Shen Yun is the world’s foremost classical Chinese dance and music company. Shen Yun seeks to revive and restore China’s 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture, including the spirit and values of the culture.
A trademark of Shen Yun is its striking images projected behind the performers. Many of these backgrounds are animated to synchronize with the choreography and lyrics and provide the landscape and setting to bring to life the stories behind their respective dances and songs.
It was these backgrounds that impressed Mr. Chen was most.
“Wow! In the first scene, many deities in the lotus pond are moving! Pigsy can fly to the heaven and back to the stage. It is really intriguing,” he said, gesturing enthusiastically.
Mr. Chen explained that a friend had told him about Shen Yun last year, but he missed it.
“Finally I viewed the show this year,” he said. “It has been a regret since I missed the show last year. Therefore, I bought the best seats this year. Just like the emcee said, ‘You have to see it once at least in your lifetime’, the show is truly fantastic!”
Mr. Chen’s company, Bowei Enterprise, was established 21 years ago and specializes in the manufacture and distribution of metal parts for machinery, household applications, building construction and plastic injection molding.
