Shen Yun, ‘A Tribute to the Beauty of Chinese Culture’

February 10, 2018

“I was most impressed. It’s absolutely spectacular, one of the most beautiful performances I have ever seen and a tribute to the beauty of Chinese culture. And I see that they [Shen Yun] are recreating, they are restoring, they are reviving Chinese traditions and culture, not letting that die and that’s a very good thing.”

“What the Communist Party’s really offering in China is a materialistic philosophy, it’s a materialistic way of life where only material things satisfy so prosperity, power, and so on. … there’s a great dissatisfaction at a deeper level with materialism … I think this is why people are turning to religious movements.”

“I would say it [Shen Yun] is very relevant to China because it’s preserving the soul of China. The Communist Party did what it could, on a Nazi tone, to destroy the Chinese soul, to destroy Chinese culture and this is preserving that for China and for future generations of Chinese and that’s a very good thing, and it’s a beautiful culture.”

“It’s [Shen Yun] a tremendous insight into Chinese culture, into the Chinese dance, music, traditions, history and the Chinese spirit and most enjoyable.”
