KAOHSIUNG, Taiwan—On the afternoon of March 14, 2009, director-general of Pingtung County Police Bureau, Mr. Song Kongkai made it to the Kaohsiung County Labor Recreation Center with his wife to watch the U.S.-based Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company’s second show in Kaohsiung.

After watching the show, Mr. Song, speaking of Shen Yun dancers’ exclaimed, “Superb! Wonderful!” He said that he had never seen such a wonderful show: “My original impression of dance was a far cry from what was performed by Shen Yun. I’ve been to China many times, and have watched various shows there, but they lagged far behind Shen Yun. Shen Yun dancers’ performance was indeed very wonderful. Their dancing skills were exceptionally good. The rhythm, music, backdrops, costumes, and color coordination were really great, making the audience appreciate the beautiful and wonderful.  

“In the program The Poet’s Vision, the coordination of the backdrop and the dance was impeccable. After the heavenly maidens flew from the big moon with the image of gorgeous palaces high on the backdrop to the stage, these heavenly maidens appeared on the stage in real life. It was very creative. Judging from the backdrops with diverse landscapes in various acts, it took hard work to design the backdrops. With that, we could tell the tremendous efforts behind the scenes.”

Speaking of the implications and spirit of Shen Yun, Mr. Song said, “Shen Yun has provided the audience with a whole new concept. Apart from the fusion of the 5,000-year Chinese culture, it also presented Tibetan and Yi dances, which are rarely seen in our daily lives, and these performances demonstrated the unique characteristics of different regions.  

“If we appreciate Shen Yun with our hearts, we can enlighten to something meaningful from it. Shen Yun is indeed very organized and very dedicated. I noticed that the audience’s emotions were stirred throughout the show.” Deeply touched by the Shen Yun show, he said in admiration, “As police are often too uncompromising, we should learn something from Shen Yun.” He added that police must build more harmonious relations with the people to enhance their services.
