Massey University Professor Enjoyed Shen Yun’s Diversity

“[Shen Yun] is really impressive and flawless. The different ages that are examined. It’s nice to see that in combination. You could see where there’ve been developments and also where the traditions are coming back.”
 

“It was interesting to hear the different country’s and nation’s backgrounds.”
 

“There’s quite a lot of spiritualism and divine thinking coming through, but also I like the reference about what’s going on in practice as well as in more modern times and how that’s sometimes in harmony and sometimes in tension. I like the way that [Shen Yun] looked at the practical and the more abstract.”
 

“I thought it was interesting [and something I learnt today] — the idea that where the heaven has sort of been cultured to feel good or be good so that they can try and re-enter that sphere.”
 

“[Shen Yun] is spectacular, it’s pretty engrossing. There’s something for everybody in terms of all the different types of performing arts. I wasn’t expecting to hear a soprano or a baritone and so everything was nicely interspersed and I think you just come away with a new appreciation of different ages and ideas.”
