Shen Yun Kicks Off Asia Tour with Sold-out Shows in Taipei, Taiwan
(Minghui.org) Shen Yun Performing Arts began its 2018 Asia Tour on February 22, 2018, at the National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan. Shen Yun's International Company performed seven sold-out performances on February 22-27.
“Took away so much tonight”
“I am blown away—I took away so much tonight,” said film director and screenwriter Huang Ying-xiong.
“I am very touched by what I have seen... I have learned a lot tonight about rear projection and front projection,” Mr. Huang said.
“Can cleanse one's soul”
“This performance can cleanse one's soul... It’s truly worthwhile to go see it,” said Zhuang Li-na, a dancer and an artistic director.
“The synchronization of the live accompaniment and dancers is perfect... It’s a performance that is hard to come by,” she said.
“[Shen Yun] brings dances of various ethnic groups and historical stories of various dynasties onto the stage. It’s something difficult,” Ms. Zhuang said.
“It made me feel like I was seeing the 5,000 years [of Chinese history],” she added.
“Touches people deep in the heart”
“A performance like this, without any language [barrier], can touch people deep in the heart—and people can change [for the better],” said Wu Tung-che, the chairman of a real estate company.
“I was blown away by how [classical Chinese] dance is used to tell the Chinese history. This [art] form is a great tradition that should be preserved,” Mr. Wu said.
“If people bring their children to see Shen Yun, they will walk away with a beautiful memory, while having a very positive educational experience,” he said.
Successful presentation of cultural essence
“[Shen Yun] successfully presents the essence of Chinese culture in a beautiful art form,” said legislator Yu Mei-nu.
“The performance demonstrates the gentleness of women—the beauty of gracefulness,” she described.
“The dances performed by the male performers show their strength, vitality, and might,” she continued.
“Elevated our minds and spirits”
“The performance not only enriched our lives but also elevated our minds and spirits,” said Li Kai-rui, the owner of a jewelry company.
“[Shen Yun] is like a lighthouse—guiding us to a positive force to help change people for the better,” he said.
“Within the 5,000 years of Chinese culture, it [Shen Yun] integrates so many different aspects—[moral values] such as loyalty, filial piety, chastity, righteousness, as well as unique characters of different ethnic groups [in China]. It shows people a direction of how they should lead their lives,” Mr. Li said.
Shen Yun will continue to perform in Taiwan with upcoming performances in Tainan, March 1–4; Taoyuan, March 8–11; Kaohsiung, March 13–18; and Taichung, March 21–23. For more information on tickets and dates, please visit http://shenyun.com.
