Beautiful and spectacular experience


Shen Yun’s Australia Tour is a long-awaited event. An event that brings beauty, joy and brilliance to an enthusiastic audience participating in the performance of this extraordinary ensemble of dancers, musicians and artists.

Shinryo means “the beauty of the dancing god” and has fascinated people all over the world since it was founded in 2006. The mission of Shinroku is to revive traditional Chinese culture dating back 5,000 years.

Throughout its history, the program’s booklet states that the Chinese people “sought harmony between heaven, the earth, and humanity, worshiped God, and followed the path of nature.”

The mission of Shen Yun is briefly explained in the program booklet.

Shen Yun is a performing arts company with an ambitious mission to revive traditional Chinese culture. … For thousands of years, classical Chinese dance has been preserved through folk traditions, court performances and ancient theaters. After the dynasty, it became rich, sophisticated and one of the most comprehensive dance systems in the world. It has its own systematic training on fundamentals, clear posture and how to elicit the innermost emotions, and numerous flips, spins, and other aerial and tumbling techniques.

May 8th On Mother’s Day, I participated in a Shinrin performance at the Gold Coast Home of Arts (HOTA). It was a wonderful, memorable and inspiring experience that was not easily forgotten and was forever cherished.

The audience is treated with colorful costumes and flags, exciting gymnastics, and a dazzling array of stylish traditional dances. Singing, music and acrobatics are really exciting experiences.

Shinroku uses an innovative 3D projection system that extends the stage to an infinite area, facilitating a seamless interaction between the dancer and the projection. But what makes performance especially important is the message that dancers, artists and musicians convey to the audience.

The performers will convey the cultural tradition of about 5,000 years, raise people’s awareness of traditional Chinese culture, and continue to make use of it. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has made decisive efforts to eradicate China’s rich cultural traditions and spirituality.

The Communist government sees this spirituality as a threat to its rule and seeks to replace it with its soulless, atheistic, Marxist crudeness. Thus, the gods play an important role in maintaining the cultural tradition that Beijing’s brutal communist government has sought to destroy.

In this way, the show provides important services to humanity by focusing on the evil of the Chinese Communist Party. That inhumane mindset is illustrated by the horrific oppression and persecution of Falun Gong learners, which began in 1999.

One of the dances, “End of Madness,” graphically depicts the oppression and torture of Falun Gong learners solely to practice the lasting values ​​of truth, compassion, and tolerance. In an exciting and striking choreographed dance, Shinroku speaks of the horror of repression and the CCP’s organ removal industry.

It’s hard not to be impressed by this dance, which blames the horrific cruelty given to innocent people who devote their lives to improving themselves and humanity. The dance reminded me of a moving depiction of the oppression of Falun Gong learners. It is very vividly and touchingly remembered in Jennifer Zen’s book Witnessing History.

The impact of Shen Yun’s performance on the audience is clear. Indeed, performance is uplifting and energizes participants inspired by the performer’s spiritual message.

In doing so, Shinryu maintains its beauty and spirituality for future generations, not only in China but around the world.

It is appropriate to pay homage to the artist’s heroic determination to bring joy, beauty and enthusiasm to the lives of all participants.

It is difficult to distinguish dance, which is an outstanding artistic achievement without exception, so it is unexpected to pick a dance for special praise. But even if I say “Monkey Around in Paradise” is one of my favorite dances, it’s rarely criticized.

The dancers will be accompanied by an orchestra that combines Western and Chinese instruments. The music is original and composed for the performance of Shen Yun.

Spectacular dance requires artists to perform an athletic and expressive dance style that has passed down Chinese culture from generation to generation.

The dance, singing and gymnastics program will be introduced by two men and women who alternate between Mandarin and English. Their introduction reveals the history of dance and puts it in the relevant Chinese era. Their contributions are always informative, knowledgeable, and sometimes even humorous. The athlete also introduced the audience to the instruments used by the musicians.

I was surprised by the beautiful sound of the erhu. The erhu is a Chinese musical instrument with two strings that can convey all human emotions.

Shen Yun develops new programs every year. Those who attended the performance are fascinated by the amazing exhibition of dazzling dances that tell a rich story of Chinese history and culture.

Those who couldn’t attend the show definitely missed an unforgettable performance. They need to seek the opportunity to attend shows in different cities this year.

In any case, people should never miss the opportunity to admire this incredibly talented ensemble the next time they visit Australia.

There is no adjective that properly expresses the thrill of enjoying the performance of Shen Yun. But the word “magnificent” is arguably the closest thing to a performance that is the most aesthetically pleasing and beautiful performance of the year.

Shinryu provides and maintains splendor, beauty, and splendor in preserving traditional Chinese culture.
