BUENOS AIRES—Argentinian actress and TV host Andrea Campbell had been waiting around two months to see Shen Yun Performing Arts.
Her wait came to an end Thursday, when she saw Shen Yun International Company at Buenos Aires’ Teatro Ópera Citi. It was the first performance of the 2013 season.
“I think that this show is not to be missed,” she said.
“The choreography is astonishing, passing through the 5,000 years of Chinese history through song and dance,” she said during the intermission.
Ms. Campbell said a passerby on the street gave her a brochure about Shen Yun, and it sparked her interest in the performance. The performance’s success internationally, and particularly in cities like New York, had also made her want to see it.
“The female dancers are unbelievable, they have an incredible flexibility,” she said.
Shen Yun Performing Arts is based in New York, and has three companies that tour the world each year. The aim of the performance, according to the Shen Yun website, is to revive 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture.
“It’s like remaking history through the expression of the body; and the music is very important, really astounding,” Ms. Campbell said.
She said the performance awakens emotions, with a kind of pleasing delicacy.
“I think that to be able to tell the history with the emotions—not only with some loose concepts that are difficult to materialize—I think it is a way of telling something that provides you more, and makes you to consider it more in your mind,” she said.
She said she felt a curious to see what came next, while watching the show. “I’m looking forward to the second half. It is visually incredible.”
