John Gizzi Says Shen Yun Is ‘Powerful and Thought-Provoking’

“It brings the images of ancient China, … and I can see a close relationship between past and present in the dances.”

“It shows us a more enjoyable time in history. … The performance of the beginning of China, and the man who kills others but seeks redemption by becoming a monk—all of that was beautiful.”

“I do [feel energy]. They’re very gripping—the performances. … The coordination of the dancers, powerful music, all really grip the audience. And I think, even those who might not be familiar with the situation in China, cannot be failed to be moved by this.”

“Powerful and thought-provoking to one of the highest degrees I’ve seen in a stage performance.”
