Shen Yun Brings Goodness and Beauty, Artistic Director Says

“It was beautiful. They were stunningly talented and well-trained.”

“I didn’t feel like they’re putting on airs to perform. I felt that they were performing from inside their hearts. … That wasn’t putting on a show, it was showing us who they really were, which is totally different.”

“The goodness and beauty of it is not really what we’re used to seeing anymore. … There was a purity to it, a natural beauty.”

“It feels very cleansing.”

“Their struggle for freedom was very touching. … I think that for me, it renews my prayers for people in China to be free, to know the truth and to be able to express who they are—to not live in fear of tyranny of the government.”
