DETROIT—“Athletic, yet graceful. Very controlled [and] very disciplined in their movements,” said Pat Dwyer, the owner of a Volvo dealership in Commerce Township, as he described his experience watching Shen Yun Performing Arts this Thursday at the Detroit Detroit Opera House.
“It was really quite a lot to see and quite a lot to take in with just a pair of eyes. You needed a little more than that to grasp it all.” He said, remarking that the performance tried to portray more than just the earthly level, but the spiritual as well.
Mr. Dwyer’s wife, Chris, said that she liked the way the female dancers moved. “The way they walk, it’s like they’re floating. They were just fantastic dancers. The choreography was spectacular. They were all beautiful and poised and it was effortless for them; it was gorgeous. The men were spectacular too,” she said.
“I also enjoyed the effect of going off into the heavens. That was pretty interesting,” said Mr. Dwyer while commenting on Shen Yun’s unique animated interactive backdrops which makes the scenery come to life.
“They manage[d] to present 5,000 years of history in just 2 hours, it was quite an accomplishment,” he concluded.
