SHEN YUN PERFORMING ARTS


1.09.15 - 1.18.15

For thousands of years, China was known as the Divine Land. The ancients believed that their rich culture was a gift from the heavens. It emphasized harmony between heaven and earth, and virtues like integrity, compassion, and tolerance...

Tragically, this glorious heritage has been largely destroyed under the 60-plus years of communist rule in China. That is why you cannot see a performance like this in China today.

In 2006, a group of leading Chinese artists came together with a wish to revive authentic Chinese culture and share it with the world. Based in New York, they formed Shen Yun Performing Arts.

The Performance
Shen Yun brings to life 5,000 years of civilization in an exhilarating production of classical Chinese dance and music. The performance moves quickly through China’s vast regions, dynasties, and eras, from antiquity to modern day. Inspiring stories and animated backdrops transport the audience to another world. Exquisite costumes, thunderous battle drums, and powerful flips fill the stage with color and energy. Timeless ethnic and folk dances, a unique East-West orchestra, and singers’ soaring voices converge in a wondrous journey through five millennia of authentic Chinese culture.

“5,000 years of Chinese music and dance in one night!”
–The New York Times

“Brilliant choreography…Extravagantly beautiful!”
– Broadway World

“Extraordinary costumes and vigorous physicality.”
– Denver Post

“Beautiful sound…Strikingly intricate melodies.”

“Demonstrating the highest realm in arts, Shen Yun inspires the performing arts world.”

– Chi Cao, lead actor in Maos Last Dancer and principal dancer with Birmingham Royal Ballet

Artists in ancient China believed that to create true art worthy of the heavens, one must cultivate inner beauty and purity. Today, Shen Yunís artists follow this noble tradition. This spiritual foundation is behind each dancerís movement and each musicianís note, and it is why many in the audience can feel that thereís something different about Shen Yun.
