“It was a beautiful and wonderful show,” Ms. Seymandi said. “[It was like] jumping into the dances and taking a leap into the past, yet the scripts were still very [relevant to today]—it was really a surprise,” she said.

The name ‘Shen Yun” translates directly into “the beauty of divine beings dancing.” Based in New York, the artists have made it their mission to revive, through dance and music, China’s 5,000 years of civilization to its pre-communist glory.

Shen Yun’s performance comprises a series of short pieces that takes its audience on a ride through the dynasties and across the vast regions of China.

Using classical Chinese, folk, and ethnic dances, as well as solo musical performances, Shen Yun tells tales from ancient times to the modern day.

Reviving Traditional Culture

Ms. Seymandi was impressed by the artists’ dedication to reviving traditional culture and thought the spirituality Shen Yun presented in the show came through loud and clear to the audience.

“It’s a great mission. It’s very important because traditions must be respected and cultures handed down.”

The divinely-inspired culture really came through, especially how the story alternated between the stage and animation—that was a surprising innovation suitable for all ages, Ms. Seymandi said. It was very, very easy to understand, she added.

According to its website, Shen Yun’s patented 3D digital technology works with the performers to “extend the stage to infinite realms” and brings to its audience “storytelling without limits.”

Referring to Shen Yun’s portrayal of human rights issues in modern-day China under communist rule, Ms. Seymandi said it made her feel very lucky that “in Italy, we have the freedom of expression.”

She also loved the solo performance by Shen Yun’s vocalist, who was trained in the traditional bel canto style.

“The tenor was extraordinary!” Ms. Seymandi stated. “The lyrics offered an important concept—it was an invitation to go beyond our limits, to overcome human littleness, and be inspired by the profoundness of traditional values.”
