‘I need to see this again’

“This is the most fantastic thing that we’ve seen in years! We’ve been waiting for a long time to watch it and we’re just thrilled with the costumes and the choreography, and just the skill level—the way that the dancers are able to dance together in synchronized fashion. They’re amazing!”

“This is really a story about the Chinese culture. And there’s so much good vibrations and positive energy and just a peacefulness that you feel.”

“My energy has ranged from being elated to being very sad and feeling sorry for some of the people for the times they’ve gone through [in the dance story ‘Unprecedented Crime’ about the persecution of the adherents of the Falun Dafa spiritual discipline in China]. And then there’s a truthfulness to the whole scene. It was a range of emotions for me.”

“I need to see this again. I need to go again. I need to see it repeatedly to really get the message and to feel that range of emotion again. … [I would tell others,] you need to see this. This is a show like no other.”
