Shen Yun Brings a Revival of Traditional Spirituality

April 30, 2017

“It was very beautifully done, but I think there’s a message here. … I think the message is what China might be today if Chairman Mao had not succeeded in 1949. China might have been a very different place today, a much more spiritual place than it’s allowed to be.”

“You understand that China actually, under the surface, is very traditionally Asian in terms of the idea of ancestors and spirits and the other world, which is being forbidden by communism. It’s actually very much alive in Chinese tradition and this is a revival of that.”
