GOYANG, South Korea—Shen Yun Performing Arts World Company kicked off the first leg of its 2019 South Korea tour by presenting two full house performances in Goyang City on March 17, 2019.
Aiming to revive a once almost-lost culture, Shen Yun’s inspiring performance with perfect skills and seamless coordination deeply touched the audiences in Goyang City.
“This is a world-class performance. It was truly wonderful and touching,” said Ha Chulkyung, Chairman of the Korean Fine Arts Association, after he attended Shen Yun’s matinée performance at Goyang Aram Nuri.
Shen Yun presents a colorful and exhilarating performance of classical Chinese dance and music. According to its Website, at the core of Shen Yun’s performances is classical Chinese dance, with China’s numerous ethnic and folk dance styles.
“The classical Chinese dance [performed by Shen Yun] is different from Korean dance. It is full of vigor and vitality,” he continued. “The exotic style of performance is really very creative and dynamic.”
Marveling at Shen Yun performers’ high-level dancing skills, Ha Chulkyung praised, “Take the piece Mongolian Spirit for instance. It requires highly difficult skills throughout the performance. But all the movements are very dynamic and natural. That’s why it is so touching.”
New York-based Shen Yun brings 5,000 years of Chinese civilization to the stage with classical Chinese dance, along with animated backdrops, solo vocalists, and an orchestra combining East and West. Every aspect of Shen Yun’s all-new performance every season shows the deeply spiritual traditional Chinese culture and values.
“The synchronization among dancers on the stage, the images on backdrops and the sub-lines was perfect,” he said. “The connection of dancers and images of characters on backdrops was very natural. It is something truly unique.” “The overall coordination is seamless.”
Watching Shen Yun the second time, Ha Chulkyung was further inspired by the connotation implied in the performance. He noted, “Rather than using vocal language, Shen Yun uses dance to portray the 5,000 years of Chinese culture. It made the audience feel very warm and intimate, and [we] got motivation from it.”
“The coherence of the overall performance was perfect. It was a very dynamic performances,” he added. “Every piece of the performance was spectacular from the very beginning to the end. This kind of magnificent performance is hard to come by, even in other countries.”
