A Culture Reborn: Shen Yun Presents China Before Communism
In the years to come, the story of Shen Yun will become a legend about how a group of elite artists came together and used their talents to save their rich and artistic traditional culture from the perils found in modern times.
Shen Yun allows audiences to experience China before communism, when its deeply rooted spiritual heritage shaped the cultural norms, art, music, dance, fashions, and architecture of the “Middle Kingdom.”
The art form at the heart of Shen Yun is classical Chinese dance, which has been developed over the dynasties to become one of the most comprehensive, expressive, and athletic dance systems in the world.
To experience Shen Yun is to be moved as its dancers, singers, musicians, and behind-the-scenes crew work together to present pure goodness and beauty on stage—a place where heaven and earth intersect and magic in possible.
The music of Shen Yun’s live orchestra lifts your spirits and carries you across the sweeping Mongolian plains to the heights of heaven. A pioneering blend of ethereal Chinese music and the grandeur of a Western orchestra will have you floating in your seat!
One reason audiences feel there is something different about Shen Yun is their noble pursuit of virtue and their belief that to create beautiful art they must first cultivate goodness—much like their ancestors did in ancient times.
In fact, many Shen Yun performers have overcome enormous tribulations on the road to reviving traditional Chinese culture, but they find guidance and strength in practising the spiritual discipline of Falun Dafa, which has moral teachings centred on the principles of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance, and meditative exercises.
Shen Yun returns to Australia for a limited engagement with an entirely new production and live orchestra, performing in Queensland at Toowoomba’s Empire Theatre on May 3 and 4; and at the Gold Coast’s HOTA, Home of the Arts on May 6, 7, and 8. Shen Yun will also perform in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Bendigo, and Adelaide.
