How often do you get to see a show that touches your heart and dazzles your senses? When was the last time you had a fully immersive experience that moved your soul?
Shen Yun is a multidisciplinary Chinese performance known around the world. It’s an authentic Chinese experience you won’t see in China today.
“Shen Yun is a transporting experience that takes you to almost heavenly realms,” says Michael Green, spokesperson for the local Shen Yun presenter.
Sit down at a Shen Yun performance and you’ll experience elegant, acrobatic dancing, beautiful bel canto vocals, spectacular costumes and high-tech sets. Each of the seven performance groups tours with its own live orchestra, with top-caliber musicians playing original compositions on Chinese and Western instruments.
In 2006 a group of artists gathered in New York to revive a traditional art form for the modern era. Thirteen years later, Shen Yun has become the world’s premier classical Chinese dance company touring 150 cities around the world.
Each year Shen Yun creates a completely new show with brand new stories, music, costumes and choreography. So whether you’ve seen Shen Yun before or are experiencing it for the first time, you’re sure to have a novel, moving experience.
5,000 years of stories
“With Shen Yun you’re not just watching a show, you’re experiencing a rich history — almost like you’re living though it,” Green says.
The performance has the power to make personal connections with audience members, often moving them to tears.
“It hits so deeply in a positive way,” Green says, “That’s the power of the show. Everyone benefits in some way.”
A brand-new performance is coming to Marion Oliver McCaw Hall in downtown Seattle this spring, from March 27 to April 5. Purchase tickets from McCaw Hall or at ShenYun.com.
