Shen Yun is a brilliant artistic revival and celebration of China’s rich cultural heritage.
Each performance consists of about 20 pieces, quickly moving from one
legend, region, or dynasty to the next. Themes range from the delicate
elegance of Tang court ladies to the battlefield heroics of valiant
generals, from the timeless philosophical works of Lao-Tzu to
spectacular scenes of magical realms. Some pieces also touch upon the
topic of today’s China, shedding light on the oppression many experience
for their spiritual beliefs, such as Falun Dafa. These tales of courage
are often what audience members find the most touching and uplifting.
