AUSTIN, Texas—Film producer Adam Lyons saw Shen Yun Performing Arts for the first time and had a “completely unique” experience at the Long Center for the Performing Arts in Austin on Dec. 28.
“You can tell the performers really have a passion for what they are doing,” Mr. Lyons said. “It’s very well put together. The choreography is beautiful.”
The New York-based Shen Yun came together in 2006 as a group of artists from around the world seeking to revive 5,000 years of Chinese civilization. Through music and dance, Shen Yun brings the once almost lost, divinely inspired culture to life on stage.
Mr. Lyons said he appreciated the culture and history that he was learning about through the performance, and that the stories were completely unique.
He also said that he enjoyed learning about the diversity of Chinese culture as well as the oppression of traditional culture today under China’s current regime.
“It’s good that there is that awareness there around the world,” Mr. Lyons said.
Mr. Lyons added that this is the kind of experience he’d want to surprise friends and family with.
“I’ve already brought some friends and family,” he said. “I’ll bring more.”
