SHEN YUN AT EVENTIM APOLLO
6.30pm Friday 26 April 2019
Come join us to experience 5,000 Years of Chinese Culture with Shen Yun!
Shen Yun presents the wonder and purity of traditional Chinese culture in a colourful and exhilarating show of classical Chinese dance and music. It is a study in grace, wisdom and virtue – magical, dazzling and uplifting.
Based in New York, Shen Yun Performing Arts have the artistic freedom to pursue their mission of reviving the traditional Chinese culture that was almost lost. In just one decade it has grown from one company to six, reaching an annual audience of over one million, with an all-new show every year.
Using the profoundly expressive art form of classical Chinese dance, Shen Yun brings to life tales of heroic generals, wise emperors, and heavenly maidens (as well as the odd crazy monk), drawing on the riches of the 5,000-year-old culture.
Stunning animated backdrops, exquisite handmade costumes, high-flying leaps and thunderous battle drums transport audience to another world.
Shen Yun “Reminds me of why I chose to study China… This is the authentic treasure that Chinese civilisation contains, and as I watch those dancers and I listen to the music, I think, this is incredibly good—it’s world-standard, these people can do anything,”
—Arthur Waldron, Lauder Professor of International Relations at University of Pennsylvania.
“Exquisitely beautiful. An extraordinary experience for us and the children.”
—Cate Blanchett, Academy Award-Winning Actress
“Mesmerising! Reclaiming the divinely inspired cultural heritage of China. I encourage everyone to see and all of us to learn from.”
—Donna Karan, fashion designer, creator of DKNY
