Shen Yun Brings Artistic Perfection to Five European Countries
(Minghui.org) During the second half of March, Shen Yun Performing Arts continued its European tour and presented eighteen shows in Germany, Spain, Belgium, Czech Republic, and Italy.
Both returning and first-time audience members alike enjoyed Shen Yun's brand new 2016 production. They applauded the artistic perfection and positive spirituality exhibited in the performances.
Minister of Culture: “A Confluence of Positive Energy and Good Hope”
“It’s a beautiful show, presenting both the superb art of the profound Chinese culture, as well as the spiritual aspect,” said Daniel Herman, the minister of culture in the Czech Republic. “It provides hope, most important of all.”
He described Shen Yun as “a confluence of positive energy and good hope in people.”
“It is indeed the touch of the divine. I think it is important to turn our heads toward the values from which this message and art come from,” Mr. Herman added.
Flutist: “Amazing” and “Absolutely Great”
“The atmosphere, the music and the colors were amazing. There was something in the air that touched my heart,” said flutist Sergio Gelsomino after seeing the performance in Frankfurt. “I even cried at the beginning of the performance.”
“I felt so good, which was absolutely great,” shared Mr. Gelsomino.
Dancer: “Perfection at Its Best”
“Shen Yun dancers show perfection at its best,” said Michael Ebert, former competitive ballroom dancer and Latin American dance performer, after seeing the show in Frankfurt on March 12.
“There are many subtleties in the Shen Yun dances. The skills are extraordinary and require mental training as well as psychological factors,” Mr. Ebert noted.
“To accomplish such an undertaking, the values, openness, truthfulness, and wisdom have to be developed. Only then can one develop freely,” he observed.
He added that the performers “have my greatest respect and compliments because of what they have accomplished.”
“Makes You Feel Like You're in Paradise”
“The orchestra doesn’t deserve 10 points, but 12!” said travel agent Conchita Feliu, who brought a party of 40 to the performance in Barcelona, Spain on March 18.
Ms. Feliu said she felt like she was on a cloud. The whole production was something really special, and her group enjoyed it all too.
“It makes you feel like you’re in paradise. We are so used to our activities, that it allows you dream,” she explained.
“Unique” and “Terrific”
“Unique...The artistic performance is terrific, in the perfection of which is brought here,” said Marlis Shafi, initiator of the business network Business to People, after seeing the performance in Frankfurt, Germany on March 12.
Ms. Shafi was especially impressed by the music. “Very pleasant,” she said. “The vibrations that this music creates, tunes the body and the organs in a certain balance.”
She shared one of the messages that she is taking home from the performance: “You should try to help people and convey more harmony. It is important that you have an appreciation and respect for nature and the entire environment.”
Shen Yun will continue its European Tour with performances in Vienna, Austria, April 5-6; Hamburg, Germany, April 9–10; Aarhus, Denmark, April 12–13; and Paris, France, April 15–17. For more information on tickets and dates, please visit http://shenyun.com.
