Shen Yun Makes Me Want to Read ‘Journey to the West’

“I love it. I love the stories that go along with it: the deities and the stories from the ancient culture.”
 

“I’m [now] interested in trying to find the novel, they said, the “Journey to the West,” [classic Chinese literature, portrayed in a dance] about finding the scrolls and the Monkey King … I’d like to read that, I think that’d be interesting.”
 

“I really like the Han sleeves dancing. I think it was fascinating, the coordination of catching the sleeves, I thought that was really neat. Oh, very graceful.”
