Theatregoer Feels at Peace While Watching Shen Yun

“The first half made me cry. … [The dance story ‘A Child’s Choice’ about religious persecution in China] just opened up my eyes. It still touches me now. I would love to see it again.”

 

“It made me [feel] at peace. It did open my eyes.”

 

“Because of the colour in the performance and the movement, it just calmed me down, like I was in my own zen. I didn’t want it to end. This is your peaceful moment, where nothing—no bad things—you’re just there in the moment.”

 

“Every movement was synchronized. And that’s the way life should be. It should be synchronized, all in one, that’s how people should be [with one another.] The movement has a lot of meaning if you put yourself into its depth.”
