Sharing Spirituality Through Shen Yun Brings Us Together, Says Theatregoer

“I’m loving it; I’m loving it. My daughter was just saying, ‘The screen [animated backdrops] is so cool!’ That technique where they are going off into the distance becoming a part of the screen and then coming back out of it again—it was exceptionally well done.”

“I actually enjoy very much the stories … and about how some of these stories, they would not be allowed to present in China, and it’s a gift to be able to present it here and actually enjoy it.”

“I personally am a spiritual person; I do believe in divine beings so I think it’s quite interesting to see that [spirituality in Shen Yun].”

“The various cultures around the world have that [belief in divine beings] in common, share that spirituality, so I think it brings us together and gives us a common background. We’ve never been there [China], or never met, and yet we still share that similarity that goes through it all.”
