For centuries, the Chinese have viewed art as a means to explore how the human world connects to the higher universe. Shen Yun, a magnificent show of music and dance, traverses 5,000 years of ancient and modern Chinese culture. Heavenly realms, legendary tales, and modern heroes take shape on a stage packed with colorful tapestries, images, and historical costumes. The history and the past meld together as lost ancient arts are performed in tandem with technological innovation in sound and light. Throughout the performance, a lie orchestra accompanies the dancers. Shen Yun has been performed around the country since 2006, when a group of elite Chinese artists sought to share traditional Chinese culture. Today, the show is one of the most mesmerizing displays of dance, music, and history on stage.
