Retired Attorney Feels Blessed to See Shen Yun

January 11, 2017

“It absolutely gives me chills. … It makes my skin crawl with happiness, in a very good way. Happy and understanding.”


“When I see this, I think of the world, not just my country, I think of the world as a whole, and the struggle of humanity and the love of humanity that can overcome struggle. It’s not always easy, but always beautiful.”


“The costumes relay such a sense of majesty, you feel like you were there, you see the floating blossoms and the beauty of the moment, in the middle of trying to survive, in the middle of a kingdom trying to make something good.”


“[The dancers] are fabulous, they are amazing. I can’t even imagine the training that they go through. The body movements they have are effortless. And yet you feel the struggle, even though you see this beautiful gliding butterfly, you feel the strive of the moth and the survival and the cocoon and not being eaten, and then flowing away into the process of their performance. It’s beautiful.”
