(Clearwisdom.net) The New York Divine Performing Arts (DPA) Company presented the first Chinese Spectacular show in Kaohsiung, Taiwan on March 4, 2008. Mr. Lu Yuan-Hua, director of the Tourism and Traffic Bureau of Kaohsiung County, came to this show because he was very impressed with it last year. Lu thinks the effectiveness of the backdrop has improved and is more creative than last year, and the artists have gotten even better.

Mr. Lu said, "The DPA has done everything to promote Chinese culture. It uses Han culture as its main theme and combines other types of art and culture to add to the variety. This is not easy to do." "The program 'Drummers of the Tang Court' is the most impressive. It looks like simple drum beating, but the choreography, the movements, plus the colors of the costumes recreate the great Tang Dynasty for the audience. It's a wonderful creation and an artistic breakthrough."
Mr. Lu continued, "The background projection helps to blend the scenes and the characters together and better tell the story. This is where DPA is different from other groups- it brings together art and divinely-inspired culture." Mr. Lu concluded by saying, "I want to share this great experience with people I know. The artists on the stage always have pleasant, relaxed smiles on their faces, and the other staff members were so warm. I felt unbelievably comfortable and joyful during the entire show."
