Interior Decorator Feels a Movement Through Her Soul From Shen Yun

“[Sitting in the fifth row,] you can see the intricacies of the costumes and how beautifully detailed they are, and the colors. It’s just gorgeous. I would notice things like that. It was very, very pretty. The colors are very vibrant, and the landscapes.”

 

“There is a certain sense of comfort and warmth that comes out from the stage to you. It’s the sense of hearing the music as well as seeing the performers. It’s silent, but yet there’s a movement through your soul that you feel—a joyous movement through your soul, not to the point where you want to cry, but where you just feel very joyful. You almost want to cry, but it’s a joyful cry.”
