“I absolutely adore it. It shows a side of Chinese culture that I didn’t know anything about. I had no idea that the leaps, and turns, and the flips that actually came from traditional Chinese culture.”

“They [the programs] were all so different. I love the one with the sleeves because I always love a good prop, and the way they maneuvered it, as well as the handkerchief, I thought that was amazing.”

“I love that [backdrop]. I think like any sort of multimedia experience is transcending in any art form … So it was sort of take you out of this world and bring you into another worldly atmosphere … It took me to another world. ”

“This sent my mind through a whirlwind because it brought us back to the traditional, at least from this viewpoint, the traditional spirituality of China, which is the Buddhist’s peace and tranquility aspect, which I think is a worldview. So that’s a really important thing to communicate.”
