KAOHSIUNG, Taiwan—Mr. Chen Shunyong, business owner of two private companies and ex-president of the local Lions Club, watched the majestic performance of Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company in Kaohsiung on April 7, with his wife.
Mr. Chen said that no matter how much one hears about Shen Yun's splendid reputation, one still can't imagine the magnificence of seeing a Shen Yun performance in person. “Only when you come and watch the show yourself do you experience the extraordinary atmosphere and stunning power,” he said.
When the orchestra started playing and the curtain slowly drew open, unveiling a magnificent scene, Mr. Chen said he immediately felt a wave of energy flowing through his body. The first program When Kings Followed the Creator to the Earth created a shock effect, similar to the last program The Opening of Heaven’s Gate, he said.
He felt that because the content of the programs is mostly from ancient Chinese history and legends, and familiar to the general public, the audience can easily relate to each of the programs. He praised the perfect coordination between the music, the dances and the animated hi-tech backdrop, which is a unique feature of Shen Yun.
He enjoyed the demeanor displayed by the male and female dancers. “The body movements of the male dancers demonstrates pure masculinity, and the postures of the female dancers are so elegant as though they were fairies from heaven.”
Mr. Chen continued, “Shen Yun’s overall coloring is golden and bright, emitting a sensation as if from an ancient palace. Along with the solemn and respectful atmosphere, the show also incorporates amusing interludes to create a wonderful combination. I am highly moved by the excellent programs.” He noticed that the audience gave bursts of enthusiastic applause throughout the show. The warm, harmonious atmosphere touched him deeply.
Mr. Chen saw many of his friends from the Lions Club in the theater. He said solemnly that when Shen Yun comes to Kaohsiung next year, he will utilize his resources to tell more people about the show so that they have the opportunity to see Shen Yun Performing Arts’ exquisite performance.
Mr. Chen specializes in component manufacturing for industrial and chemical applications. He owns two companies, which have been awarded the distinction of Fine Manufacturers by Ministry of Economic Affairs.
