Writers Delighted, Entranced by Shen Yun

January 26, 2014

WASHINGTON—Writers Marion Ingram and her husband, Daniel Ingram, attended Shen Yun Performing Arts at the Kennedy Center Opera House on Jan. 24th.

“It was a delightful program. Beautiful, moving, thoroughly entrancing,” said Mr. Ingram, who is author of The Hands of War: A Tale of Endurance and Hope, From a Survivor of the Holocaust, which was published in March of last year.

Mrs. Ingram’s book touches upon the topics of oppression and freedom, which are part of Shen Yun’s performance.

New York-based Shen Yun, which displays classical Chinese dance, an orchestra combining Eastern and Western instruments, and a stunning animated backdrop, aims to revive traditional Chinese culture. Stories and morals are told through performing arts.

Mrs. Ingram said she and her husband are frequent patrons of the performing arts, and have seen a variety of performances, but nothing comes close to Shen Yun.

“There is actually no comparison. I like the idea tonight of going to the different centuries,” Mrs. Ingram said. “There are the stories. Stories are fun.”
