Shen Yun Shows Us Hope Though the Divine, Company Owner Says

“It [Shen Yun] had a great impact, great emotional impact on me.”
 

“There are very few times I’ve seen a show and I find it hard to speak afterward, and this was one of those.”
 

“I think the one that affected me the most was the child segment [‘A Child’s Choice’], and it gave me an idea of what the Falun Gong might be going through.”
 

“I was very impressed with the talent and the expression through dance and music. I think this is the first time where I’ve seen the orchestra play all the way through so I could hear music continuously. The drama of the music and the drama of the dance was well-coordinated to express something of music and dance and still have that emotional impact.”
 

“It’s hard for me to describe what emotion I had. … The last scene gave a feeling that unless we connect with that divine source, there may not be any. That’s where our hope lies. … What was being portrayed here—the creator and that we’re all one, and … through that unity, we will have hope for the future.”
