KAOHSIUNG, Taiwan—After watching Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company’s first show in Kaohsiung on March 13, 72-year-old Chinese lotus ink painter Lin Qinyu exclaimed, "Amazing! Amazing!
"I feel like I'm becoming younger and want to dance with them. Every piece of the program is outstanding. The combination of the colors was so wonderful that it could not be done by humans.
"Shen Yun’s scenes were so pleasant and pure that every dancer seemed to be an elegant heavenly being. Their postures and movements were very light and graceful, and the show had deep spirituality and purity, like the lotus flowers growing out of the mud without being dirty. They were like the realm of ultimate bliss. I enjoyed it very much and feel like seeing it again," she said.
Ms. Lin also complimented the show's arrangement, choreography, musical production, dancers’ exquisite postures, and body movements. "Regardless of whether they were simple or complicated, they were wonderful. Seeing the show was like we were immersed in the worldly paradise, making me feel very comfortable. I really enjoyed it very much. It was indeed great.”
She told The Epoch Times that the program Heaven Awaits Us Despite Persecution was the dance that impressed her the most. She said, “It is not right to persecute good people, not to mention those practitioners.
"No matter how difficult the plight might be, we must persevere, looking ahead as opposed to looking backward, and we should be steadfast in our beliefs and the truth. Like those Falun Gong practitioners who cultivated their bodies and minds in the Buddha School. Though they were cruelly persecuted, they never changed their determination to cultivate. They were really awesome."
Ms. Lin is a well-known Chinese lotus ink artist who has also played the piano for over 30 years. She used to be a professional piano teacher.
