Canadian Arts Professor Impressed by Harmony of Chinese Spectacular Show

By Olivier Chartrand, Epoch Times Staff, Jan 14, 2008-

OTTAWA—”It makes us discover a new, different cultural universe,” Professor Geneviève Mareschal said after seeing the Canadian premiere show of the Chinese New Year Spectacular on Sunday night at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa.It was Mareschal’s first time seeing the show.Mareschal is Vice-Dean academic of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Ottawa, and an Associate Professor at the university’s School of Translation and Interpretation. “It’s interesting. There was lots of harmony in the movements of the dancers,” she said.

She preferred the performances of the male performers “because it was more energetic and illustrated strength and power.”

Mareschal was also impressed by the quality and strength of the singers’ voices.

The Spectacular is a grand showcase of traditional Chinese dance and music that has been touring the world since 2004, visiting over 60 cities on four continents this year. It features Divine Performing Arts, a company of dancers, vocalists, and musicians of excellence that aims to revive the “pure compassion, pure beauty, and pure truthfulness” of ancient Chinese culture and values without the modern influence of communist party culture.

Because the performances are without any communist party culture, “there is a kind of harmony with nature,” said Mareschal.

“The pieces depicting modern times also reflect the value of compassion and of helping each other,” she added.

“The show gives an impression of peace and calm,” remarked Mareschal.
