Shen Yun in France: ‘It’s absolutely divine’

March 21, 2017

“It’s light, it’s aerial. I especially love the Chinese female dancers. There is such a grace in how they move, in the way they move their hands, their bodies. Everything is graceful: this is my vision of what we call a woman … In our world full of struggle … this is relaxing, it’s light, it’s absolutely divine.”

“These values of generosity, tolerance [in the performance] are universal. That’s why it’s so touching. What is more universal than dance, music, expression of the body? … I do not understand Chinese, but when the tenor sings, ‘we do not take anything with us that we fought for,’ it’s a great lesson of wisdom.”
