RALEIGH, North Carolina—Shen Yun Performing Arts returns to the Raleigh-Durham, N.C. area for 3 shows starting on Jan. 10, 2014. North Carolina has been an annual stop for Shen Yun for the last 5 years, giving audiences there the chance to see the world’s premier Chinese classical dance and music show.
Principal dancers Cindy Liu and William Li were interviewed on the live morning show on WRAL TV, the local CBS affiliate station. As Shen Yun becomes a growing international phenomenon, people are getting more interested in Shen Yun’s mission of bringing to life 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture on stage.
Al Whitted, the media coordinator for the N.C. Falun Dafa Association, the local sponsor of the show, said, “It was great to have the two lead dancers express their perspectives about Shen Yun and reach such a large audience on the morning news. This gave a large audience in our area an opportunity to learn about ancient Chinese culture and Shen Yun’s mission.” WRAL TV is the area’s largest TV station.
Shen Yun, a non-profit organization based in New York, has become a true international phenomenon as it brings the wonders of ancient Chinese culture; last season three companies toured for six months of non-stop travel around the globe and performed over 350 shows.
Shen Yun is actually a performance that cannot be seen in China. Under decades of communist rule, traditional Chinese culture has been lost in China. Shen Yun’s mission is to revive this “divine culture” and bring it to life on stage.
Audiences in North Carolina and around the world are expecting to see Shen Yun bring the best trained Chinese classical dancers in the world every year. Along with the live orchestra, state-of-the-art digital backdrop, and extravagant costumes, Shen Yun truly brings to life the wonders of 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture.
Shen Yun will perform for one show Friday night on January 10, and two shows on Saturday, January 11 at Raleigh Memorial Auditorium at Duke Energy Progress Center in Raleigh, North Carolina. Shen Yun will return to NC on January 28 and 29, as it visits Charlotte for 2 shows.
New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts has four touring companies that perform simultaneously around the world. For more information, visit Shen Yun Performing Arts.
