University Professor Finds Global Message for All Mankind at Shen Yun

“Excellent. Very nice way to get to know Chinese history, through music and dance.”

“The costumes show continuous movement and flow. The dancers seem to be flying. They were all coordinated very well. To me, they seem like birds that fly in the air, being able to change very quickly, change direction very quickly. Formation and all that, that’s exactly what it looks like … Very nicely done. The music is beautiful.”

“I was able to narrow the traditional Chinese rhythm and elements. I was surprised by the soprano. She was great … Powerful. She was conveying a message.”

“I thought it would be related to Chinese religion, but it wasn’t. It was more of a global message. Get away from technology, go back to tradition, whoever you are. Think about good, goodness, and think about your soul.”

“I’m in the Greek Orthodox, a very religious person, and we reinforce almost the same message. A national, global message: search inwards, search into your soul. It applies to all mankind, to all different cultures. Beautiful.”
