Shen Yun: Experience a Divine Culture

When: Jan. 26-27, 7:30 p.m. 2016

Shen Yun invites audiences to “experience a divine culture” with two nights of their Chinese dance performance featuring Chinese music produced with the help of a Western tradition — the symphony orchestra. Chinese dance is known for its strict training in both physically trying and specific postures. All we needed was to see a guy holding his leg by his ear to know what Shen Yun means by “strict training.” Outfitted in sweeping and gorgeous dresses, blouses, and pants, the dancers depict scenes evocative of what Shen Yun calls a “lost civilation.” Watching videos of the dancers you can understand how the performance takes audiences back in time, with colorful backdrops depicting TK. Just take it from Cate Blanchett (you know, the famous actress), who calls Shen Yun, “An extraordinary experience. Exquisitely beautiful.”
