Research Scientist Calls Shen Yun ‘Fabulous and Refreshing’

February 3, 2018

“The colors and the skilled precision of the actresses and actors [strikes me the most]. They’ve done a fabulous job blending modern styles and taken from the classical Chinese, and it’s a nice refreshing event for people to come to. I enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to the second half.”

“I did [get the messages behind the dances.] I don’t know if I’m a little bit biased. I studied Chinese, and I studied martial arts as well, so you get an extra appreciation.”

“I definitely think that [other people] should come. I have some Chinese friends that I would invite. Obviously there are some political things in there, but communism is not good for culture. … it rejects the idea of natural man, which is something that the west understands.”

“The ancient Chinese, they understood what it meant to be a human being and to understand that nobody is perfect, and government, kings and empeorors, so every culture, every place has a balancing of things, but communism is not very helpful for the history of China.”
