Company Co-Founder: Shen Yun Is ‘Something that needs to be seen’

“It is fabulous. The culture, the history, and I’m realizing that the oppression in China has led them to come here to America to express their situation through their art. And particularly the oppression of, I think, religious freedom as well. That showed through quite clearly towards the end, and I appreciate it very much.” 
 

 ” Many themes resonated with me — compassion, forgiveness, love. I think, most importantly love.” 

“[Shen Yun is] very difficult to articulate. It’s something that needs to be seen. I would think of flowing water. It’s very fluid and very athletic as well.”
