Director Enjoys Virtues of Traditional Chinese Culture at Shen Yun

February 23, 2018

“Traditional Chinese culture is in fact the treasure of all cultures—it is like a great wall [connecting to all other cultures] … With our current civilization built upon technology and materials, we should do more to protect our traditional cultures, especially traditional Chinese culture. And what Shen Yun showcases is the wonders and essence of traditional Chinese culture.”

“The costumes, the music, the symphony orchestra—traditional Chinese culture is in full display. As of now, what I have seen around the world, Shen Yun is the best in dedicating to a performance about this culture.”

“In this performance, even though there isn’t any dialogue, the performance is an example the life that people dream of having.”

“I don’t know how many people still know about the four anchors—the sense of propriety, justice, honesty and honor—or the eight virtues … these all are the essences of the traditional Chinese culture. … Shen Yun doesn’t speak of these out loud, but within the performance, these [anchors and virtues] are there that allow you to reflect yourself.”

“I am just greatly touched … traditional Chinese culture is something Chinese people need to continue to enjoy, to study, and to promote it.”

“This is more than just a performance—it allows you experience the richness of the culture … [People could] take a trip to Tibet, visit Qinghai, or go to any other place. However, I believe the feelings [at the performance] can in fact allow people to experience [first-hand] the wonders of traditional Chinese culture.”
