Neuroradiologist Calls Shen Yun ‘Visually Striking,’ Says Music is ‘Evocative’

“It’s very artistic. Very visually striking … The colors are vivid.”

“It’s [digital backdrop] very visually striking. The patented technology behind the scenes was fascinating, really interesting.”

“I love it [music]. The instruments playing behind the scene right now, I don’t know what it is, but it’s very Chinese. And I really enjoy it. It’s very haunting and evocative for a western ear.”

“There is an underlying cultural tie between China and here. They’re touching on the history of China.”

“We’re bridging the gap between the western world and China. I think that’s happening here [Shen Yun performance] … Connections are being made, stronger ties between east and west is a good thing.”

“People are really connected with the message … There’s also a spiritual component that I was surprised to see.”

“I’m surprised about the references to the communist party … I think that’s courageous. That message needs to be put out there. To be truly free, the communist party … that’s not part of their ethos. That’s not part of their culture. They want to squelch and keep down. I like that it’s really bubbling through here. And I was really surprised at it actually, and I like it.”
