WASHINGTON—Mr. Neal Krysinski saw Shen Yun Performing Arts on Jan. 25.

He returned Jan. 26 for the matinee Shen Yun performance, which was the closing performance at the Washington’s Kennedy Center Opera House.

He is a photographer and a real estate manager.

He said, “I was here last night, and decided to come back for the matinee show this morning with friends who are Chinese.”

He continued, “I found the performance to be exquisite tonight, I really did.”

In yesterday’s performance he said felt the emotions emanating from the audience, while today he felt even more.

This time, “I felt elation in the air because in my opinion, the artists were aware that this was their last performance in this area.”

He continued that he “felt that this was part of the energy tonight. It was to me as if the artists radiated a feeling of excitement of a job well done.”

This energy was strong enough to make him “feel very highly energized, just as I did after last night’s performance.”

Not only that, but “I noticed a lot more of the subtleties” in the performance.

He took a philosophical look at the impact of this performance on him and said, “Again tonight I will take from this performance an understanding of their culture, which has grown from inside out.“

He expressed the idea that he felt empathy for the artists, because he was on a similar path. He said makes him “feel good that there are other people that have or want to achieve growing from inside out. Since I’m like that, I can relate to where these performers are coming from.”

Changing the subject, he went on to talk about the projected backdrop which according to the Shen Yun website is based on a state-of-the-art graphics technology.

As a photographer “I am a visually stimulated person, so I love that.”

The female artists “dancing in the various scenes, all of that against the projections on the backdrop was absolutely beautiful.”
