Shen Yun, ‘It is like a beautiful painting that is just full of imagination’

April 21, 2017

“I like beauty and I like color and I was absolutely amazed with the performance of today.”
 

“Excellent, excellent. I would … have to say the orchestra was excellent and that was a big contribution to the show because without an orchestra, you would not have the same effect. So I think overall, it is a show of perfection.”
 

“The costumes were just very, very beautiful. That is what I’m really referring to in terms of the beauty of color and the costumes were just incredible. The way the costumes were designed and the fabric that was used, goes with the flow of the movement, enhanced further the performer’s gestures, was just incredible. …”

 

“Very, very talented people in the area of movements and dance. … I am originally from Poland and I was exposed to the Russian ballet, very much so. … but the Chinese form of art, which almost borders [on] acrobatics is absolutely amazing. People have bodies made out of rubber. They must be dancing 8 to 10 hours a day to reach this stage of professionalism.”
 

“It was just really very surreal almost. It is like a beautiful painting that is just full of imagination.”
