YUANLIN, Taiwan—On the evening of April 17, Legislator Wong Chin-chu, once again, attended the Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company’s show at Changhua County Yuanlin Performance Hall, in a pleasant mood. After watching the Shen Yun show, she said, Shen Yun "not only let us experience the artistic conception of Chinese culture, but it also let us learn more about the content of Dafa in the form of arts."

As the U.S.-based Shen Yun Performing Arts tours major cities around the world every year, Legislator Wong said that she attends the show every year.

She also noted that she especially appreciated some of the creative programs performed this year, such as the dances Monkey King Outwits Pigsy, Little Mischievous Monks, etc. “As these dance dramas were performed in a humorous way, they often made the audience burst into laughter and caused tumultuous applause time and again," she added.

She stated that the programs that impressed her the most were Ladies of the Tang Palace and Recalling the Great Qin, saying these programs "blended with the Chinese culture, and they vividly demonstrated the content of Chinese culture. It is a very valuable experience for the audience to learn the divinely-imparted culture from Chinese legends."

The legislator stressed, "Of course, this is a very superb dance performance. Although without vocal expressions, these dancers’ performances with music and body movements did deeply touch the audience’s hearts. From the perspective of appreciation, I would say that it was very worthwhile, really worthwhile."
