‘Everything is perfect,’ Former Art History Professor Says of Shen Yun

“Excellent! Absolutely. It’s the first time in my life [seeing Shen Yun]. I really, really enjoy it. I’m very, very happy.” 
 

(Do you like the dancing, or music, or backdrop?) “Altogether. Everything is perfect.” 
 

“Every country has [it’s] history, and identity, and all kinds of religions and backgrounds. … I feel that because I was raised in a communist country. This message, it really hurt my heart because I remember this time.” (In response to a dance vignette about religious persecution in modern-day China.) 
 

“I definitely recommend [Shen Yun] to my friends to go and see it.”
