NEW YORK—Mark and Susan Lachur, the owners of a car dealership, saw an uplifting message and the highest principles for living a good and honest life in the Shen Yun Performing Arts debut show at the Lincoln Center's David H. Koch Theater on Thursday, Jan.6.
“The message is don’t chase after things you don’t need. Be honest and truthful and everything will be good,” said Mark.
His wife, Susan, added they try to live that type of life all the time and believe in having a pure heart.
Traditionally, the arts of China have been intertwined with moral ideals. Chinese people thousands of years ago felt their culture to be divinely inspired, bringing with it principles from the heavens.
As the couple sees it, the beauty of the message paralleled the grace, flexibility, and especially the hand movements of the dancers.
She added that the dazzling costumes were "just outrageous" and the dancers' "talent is beautiful."
