ANTWERP, Belgium—The Divine Performing Arts (DPA) New York Company’s performance at the Stadsschouwburg, the City Theater in central Antwerp on Wednesday, Feb. 25, was applauded by all. Mr. and Mrs. Vets were moved by the performances.
Mr. Vets, a general director of an international food company in Belgium, appreciated the Asian traits in the performance, which reminded him of a holiday he had in Asia two years ago. “Like the discipline, how respectful people are,” he said.
Mr. Vets loved the beauty of “the choreography and the dresses.”
He was most moved by the spiritual messages and beauty of the performances. He explained, “What struck me the most was the serenity of the show. It is pure and harmonious. … We liked that, the spirituality.”
The various soloists sang in Chinese. However, the backdrops translated the songs into English.
Mrs. Vets added, “The text of the singers was touching.”
DPA’s guiding mission is to rediscover and renew humanity’s true, rightful cultural heritage. The company creates and performs works that center upon the true, divinely bestowed culture of humankind.
Mr. Vets appreciated the depiction of 5,000 years of history and tradition, and concluded by saying, “It gave you a good overview of the history and the culture, and it did it in a very calm and intensive way. I found it very, very attractive.”
This was the final DPA performance in Antwerp before continuing its 2009 World Tour in Paris on Friday Feb. 27.
