TOURS, France—When you are a dance teacher and you attend a performance of Shen Yun Performing Arts, what could you possibly think of this show?
“Wonderful! Because I have played at the Monte Carlo Opera, I can really measure the fantastic work of harmony, the gestures and you can feel the fantastic fusion of people who want to show something strong,” Corinne Tixier expressed herself during the performance of Shen Yun, this Wednesday on Feb. 19, 2020, at the Palais des Congrès de Tours, France.
Corinne Tixier has indeed experienced all the power of the energy of this show but also “the gentleness in persuading to show the reality of a lost paradise.”
“What amazed me was the almost acrobatic work which is added in an extreme refinement of softness where there is absolutely no effort,” she said.
For the dancer, there was also a clear parallel between classical Chinese dance and martial arts. She spoke of “energy punctuated by extremely precise, measured gestures, and with a concentration that also reminds me of the work in martial arts, therefore deeper in harmony than the worldwide classical dance technique of today’s operas.”
Corinne Tixier, as an artist, also marveled at the way Shen Yun celebrates femininity, as it was lived in the ancient dynasties. “I come out with respect for beauty and of women who are truly extraordinary, through their refinement.”
Moreover, for her, the ensemble was perfectly coherent and contributed to the harmonious and enchanting balance. “I was really overwhelmed by everything I saw and heard, from the orchestra which was magnificent, to the choreography, to the costumes. It’s the quintessence of the eternal China that stands out in this show.”
But beyond the beauty of Shen Yun, Tixier said she also really realized the importance of Shen Yun’s message in our modern world, which is more and more disconnected from any spirituality.
“I think it’s vital, for today’s world, to reconnect the human to the spiritual and to the only beauty of the world, that is the earth, the planet as it should be, virgin, natural, pure with man again divine.”
At the end of the performance, renewed hope invaded Tixier, who fully grasped the importance of the values with which she fervently wishes to reconnect more profoundly.
“We’re recovering all the respect for humanity and energy too, I’m coming out stronger to fight in this modern world and to recover real values, it’s going to help me recover these values, I think this is very very important.”
“You bring so much, perhaps hope for mankind and the respect and beauty of humans on planet earth,” she said.
Philippe Cassius, her companion, added: “I think she’s said it all. It’s true that through the show, it’s all the beauty of human beings in their most beautiful and noble aspects that they were able to express with joy, love, and talent. They are examples to be followed.”
