Order of Canada Recipient Finds Hope in Shen Yun

“Spectacular performance. Fabulous production. What it underlines for me is how strong the human spirit is. It can’t be repressed. It gives us all hope, all of us.”

“I loved the harmony of the choreography, the performance, the music, all put together so seamlessly. It flows as one. That’s the thing. Everything happens as one—the music, choreography, the dance.”

“I think one of the weaknesses of modern society is how materialistic it is and spirituality has been pushed off to the side. But when you see something like this, you know how important it is, because we are all spiritual one way or another, and we need to allow that spirituality to escape the confines of modern society and breathe again.”
