Chances are, you’ve seen a billboard or advertisement for Shen Yun somewhere around town. If the elaborate costumes and gorgeous colours have piqued your interest, you’re in luck. We’re here to demystify all there is to know about this world-class fusion of dance, art, theatre, and ancient Chinese history.
Shen Yun depicts the history of ancient Chinese dynasties through the art of 5,000-year-old classical Chinese dance. It’s much more than a history lesson, however, as Shen Yun, the world’s most recognized classical Chinese dance company, is full of flips leaps, spins and tumbles as well as graceful postures will leave you in awe.
Shen Yun was founded in New York in 2006 by people who fled communist China, and therefore, Shen Yun is actually banned in China. Nevertheless, it continues to be enjoyed around the world and undertakes an extensive international tour each season.
Shen Yun offers audiences a stunning concoction of drama, comedy, colourful handmade costumes, a unique animated backdrop, and a powerful score performed by a live orchestra that combines instruments from China and a full set of Western strings, brass, woodwinds, and percussion. It’s a captivating experience full of positive energy not to be missed!
Simply put, there’s nothing else quite like Shen Yun.
