Shen Yun

Classical Dance, Ethnic

This epic production immerses American audiences in stories reaching back to the most distant Chinese past, with acrobatic dancing colorful costuming, high-tech backdrops, and live orchestra. The company, based on Long Island, features a large cast performing intricate, synchronised routines to the pop-eastern sounds of a live orchestra. Shen Yun is affiliated with the Chinese spiritual movement known as Falun Gong, which the Chinese government considers dangerously religious and tries to suppress both within its borders and in the wider world.
