DUBLIN, Ireland—As a television producer with Ireland’s national broadcaster (RTE), Mr. Gavin McAuliffe wasn’t sure what to expect when he arrived to see Shen Yun perform at The Convention Centre Dublin on April 20th, but he left feeling excited and uplifted.
“That is a very philosophical message, and I think it is a universal message. It is all very positive. As a show it is a great spectacle, full of colour, and some of the messages are very uplifting, and maybe tomorrow I will reflect on them more and feel even better about it!” said Mr. McAuliffe.
The Creative Solutions Manager was impressed with the use of digital media in the show. “The integration of the choreography and the digital backdrops was fantastic. The gaps in between each act, the explanation from the presenters was fantastic—very impressive.”
Shen Yun explains its use of digital images on its website. “With state-of-the-art graphics technology, Shen Yun’s digital-backdrop team creates vividly animated settings, extending the stage and transporting the audience to a world where heaven and earth are one.”
On Shen Yun efforts to revitalise traditional Chinese culture, Mr. McAuliffe said, “It probably made me more aware of how ancient Chinese culture is, and how the current administration in China would keep all this culture away from the rest of the world is incredible.”
He said: “I think it is fantastic. I think if you come back to Dublin, word will spread, and even more people will be interested and come to see it.”
