ATLANTA—Lee and Kim Joselin adored Shen Yun Performing Arts’ presentation of classical Chinese dance and music.
“I am loving it,” said Mr. Joselin, a retired deputy from Florida.
“It is especially beautiful,” added Mrs. Joselin, who works an occupational health manager. The couple watched Shen Yun at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre on Jan. 3.
Mr. Joselin explained that he is always fascinated by cultural and art performances, and therefore he really enjoyed watching Shen Yun.
He said he particularly appreciated Shen Yun’s use of animated digital backdrops and how the backdrops were integrated into the show to have characters fly in and out of the stage and onto the backdrops.
“The timing is impeccable,” he said.
Mrs. Joselin marveled at the colorful costumes worn by Shen Yun dancers, each masterfully designed and made by hand.
“They are absolutely gorgeous,” she said.
The music of Shen Yun was another highlight for the couple. The Shen Yun Orchestra performs original scores to accompany the dance performances.
“The music is fantastic,” Mr. Joselin said. “In timing, you know, it is beautiful with the dancers,” added Mrs. Joselin.
Based in New York, Shen Yun has a mission to revive China’s divinely inspired culture. The company travels the world each year with its exhilarating performances, but is not currently able to perform in China. Noting this fact, Mrs. Joselin said she finds it very sad that Shen Yun cannot travel to China. Mr. Joselin noted, “That makes it even more special.”
