The authentic Chinese culture Shen-Yun presents can’t be seen in another show or even in China. There, the Communist Party sees traditional culture as a threat to its power and for decades has tried to destory it. It nearly succeeded.
But in 2006, as a group of elite Chinese artists came together in New York with a mission- to revive traditional culture and share it with the world. They created Shen Yun and brought this majestic culture back from the brink of extinction.
To make this journey possible, we have pushed the boundaries of performing arts. We combine ancient legends with technological innovations, and historically authentic costumes with breathtaking animated backdrops. We let classical Chinese dance do storytelling, and share with you beautifully diverse ethnic and folk traditions. Filled with enchanting orchestra sound, this is a mesmerizing experience you won’t find anywhere else.
