Shen Yun Has Energy of ‘Serenity and Harmony and Peace,’ Says Former French MP

PARIS, France—Frédérique Dumas is a film producer, but was a deputy to the National Assembly for Hauts-de-Seine from 2017 to 2022. She attended Shen Yun Performing Arts on Saturday, April 29, at the Palais des Congrès.

“It was really a magical moment that allowed us to travel out of time,” she said. “You can see an absolutely incredible technique and obviously you don’t get the impression it is easy when in fact, it involves hours and hours of work. The costumes are beautiful, the colors are beautiful, the music! Everything is very, very harmonious!”

New York-based Shen Yun is the world’s premier classical Chinese dance company.
Mrs. Dumas could feel that Shen Yun carries an energy: “You really feel it! It’s not just intellectual, it’s something you feel, which did me a lot of good and touched me a lot!”
“In the translations, it was emphasized that one came from heaven to have a mission and that we are therefore all connected. And it is this feeling of being connected to each other, whatever the culture and whatever the conditions, that makes us feel all the harmony of these dances and this show.”
Touched by this connection to the divine inspired by the ancestral belief in a culture inherited from deities, Mrs. Dumas explained that “faith is what really builds and connects us to each other ... The message conveyed is strong because we have to be connected to something bigger than ourselves if we want to bring something beautiful to this Earth. I don’t think that human beings, if they are not connected to something bigger, can do much!”
For Mrs. Dumas, Shen Yun conveys “a lot of serenity and harmony and peace! I think we need to send these energies, to share them with as many people as possible because I think it does play on each individual. And I think that each individual here tonight will leave with this energy!”

Shen Yun, ‘Beauty Personified’

Rémy Fleurot also attended Shen Yun on Saturday. This former lieutenant colonel of gendarmerie found the show fabulous.

“It is beauty personified, in the male dancers as in the female dancers! There is a body language that is all the more wonderful because it is unknown to many people in the Western world.”

The former military officer enjoyed the music of Shen Yun, performed by an orchestra unique in that it combines the Western symphony orchestra with traditional Chinese musical instruments such as pipa, erhu, or gong.

According to its website, Shen Yun’s orchestra seamlessly combines the best of the East and the West by using a classic Western ensemble as the foundation to highlight traditional Chinese instruments such as the two-stringed erhu and the pipa, an ancient Chinese lute.

“The music is very striking! Of course, a music that I’m not familiar with, but which I enjoyed to the fullest!”

Mr. Fleurot confided that Shen Yun is “moving to tears” for him. “At my age, we appreciate beauty, human warmth, kindness, all these virtues that we have lost. And it is all the more important to find them on this stage!”

For the military man, Shen Yun can “soothe the world which is at war. We see wars everywhere. I think the most important thing is that it brings us peace, inner peace and also peace in the world, in countries that are at war.”
