This week Shen Yun Performing Arts New York Company completed its 2014 World Tour with performances in Buenos Aires at the Opera Allianz Theater.

Here is a sample of audience members’ comments with their photos.

Silvia Majdalani, an Argentinian official: Shen Yun performers, “I congratulate them, I’m so glad you came. This is the third time they come to Buenos Aires, and God willing, the fourth time, that will be next year, will have a resounding success. Because the Argentine people will know what Falun Dafa is and will have learned to appreciate it.” Pedro Robledo, coordinator of the Thinking Foundation: Shen Yun, “It’s divine, it’s a spectacular show.” The performance, “it talks of spirituality, talks about religion , discusses several important things for Chinese culture that one , at times, for being on the other side of the world, doesn’t know about, and it’s more than important to know them because it touches the spirit. And sometimes in a world that’s pretty crazy, it’s good to slow down and think about the importance of the inside.”

Roberto Piazza, a couture designer: “I come from my company, I come as my hat, bristling with teeth, as standing on the top of a stick, and the music makes you relax, and it takes you to somewhere else, which us Westerners, or us Argentinians in this case, are totally unused to it. It really is a marvelous thing, it is marvelous because of how they use the color, that everything have a meaning, obviously, those are not outfits that just look nice, that’s the difference.” About the costumes he said, “I really want to touch those fabrics and to look at the material, for me they are all natural silks, and if they aren’t, they are perfect. The little crystal sparkles, or color degrade that goes from fuchsia to combine it with intense emerald green, or a parrot green, as we say, almost tropical, it’s really admirable, the colors wake you up, it’s marvelous.” 

Sergio Renan, an actor, film director, screenwriter and former Director of Colón Theater: Shen Yun, “well precisely because it is about the Chinese world, which has many aspects that are far from Western and Christian sensibility, there are aspects that basically belong to the human condition, so one feels close to beings who were supposed to be very distant.” (Courtesy of NTD Television) 

Angel Mahler, a renowned composer and conductor: Shen Yun “Is very different and very beautiful, it’s another culture, totally different, but on the other hand, we are the same people, and even though they compose in a different way, they are thrilling in a different way, they dance in a different way, there’s something in common—that is, the beauty.” (Courtesy of NTD Television)
