PARIS—Her birthday coincided with the last dates of the Shen Yun Performing Arts company’s European tour. Jocelyne Hervé, a lawyer at the tribunal in Paris, discovered with her two daughters an “absolutely wonderful show” during the afternoon performance on Saturday, May 11.
“I’m very moved,” she said at the Palais des Congrès. “I am very moved to have been able to see this show. It is a great gift from the company and a great message of hope for the future.”
In all the scenes which bring back ancient legends to life or illustrate the traditional ways of life of the different Chinese ethnic groups, Mrs. Hervé saw “a connection with the divine, everywhere present. It is really a great treasure, a great spirituality. We enter into the extraordinary and the divine. It is very important today, our world needs it.”
In this modern world disconnected from the past and where persecution is trying to wipe out tradition in China, “this show can bring a lot, especially to children,” Hervé said.
“They [my daughters] really felt the messages that were presented, especially in the dance where a young woman is arrested for her beliefs, she is tortured and then there is this message that comes from faith, from belief, from the divine which allows her to regain her sight, the use of her hands,” Hervé said.
“In this show, which “is very moving,” comes out “a beautiful message of hope,” she added.
Therefore, this lawyer and her daughters vowed to return in 2020 because the show is “really a beautiful message, a beautiful message for the future.”
