Shen Yun Is Good For Those Who Know Chinese Culture and Those Who Don’t

February 19, 2017

“It is very vivid, and beautiful, so the combination of the beautiful costumes and the wonderfully expert dancing, along with the technology—the screen is really surprising and uplifting, very beautiful performance.”

“I’m your typical American, so I don’t know much about Chinese culture, but the beauty and some of the struggle, and the understanding of trying to save thousands of years of culture probably is the most surprising piece for me.”

“They’ve done a really wonderful job of at least opening up and creating curiosity for people who may have known a little bit, and for people like myself, who knew nothing.”

“This is beautiful and poignant and at the same time it is difficult and harsh, and so all of those things together, very unusual to do, to follow off in one performance.

“It’s wonderfully spiritual, and I don’t know that I knew that before today.”
