Divine Performing Arts’ Classical Chinese Culture Show Warms Up Chicago

Posted by Author on December 29, 2008

By Lisa Sim, Epoch Times Staff, Dec 27, 2008 –

CHICAGO— Chicago saw its first show of the Divine Performing Arts 2009 World Tour on Saturday afternoon, while temperatures in the city rose to the mid-50F, nearly 70 degrees higher than last week.

Mr. Stuart, owner of a construction company based in Wichita, Kansas brought his family to see the show after it was highly recommended by a tour guide from a large credit card company.

“Just awesome, just awesome!” said Mr. Stuart, saying the show was very interactive with the screen and the performers.

Mr. Stuart’s daughter Ashley, who is 12 years old and has been taking ballet for nine years, said she really liked the show a lot, especially the dancing. Her favorite was the opening act The Five Millennia Begin and The Monkey King Triumphs.

“I would definitely come to see the show again.”

Memories of Tibet

Ms. Bansa, who owns a day care center in Roger’s Park area of Chicago, said she wished she had been able to bring all one hundred and one children at her center to see the show.

Having traveled to Tibet with her husband, she said she really appreciated the Dance of the Snow-Capped Mountain, adding, “All the dances and the beautiful costumes just bring back memories for us. The mountains and the peace.”

Based in New York, the DPA was founded in 2006 with the purpose of rediscovering the true cultural heritage of China.

The DPA New York Company will hold one more performance in Chicago, at 2pm Sunday December 28.

The Epoch Times is a proud sponsor of the Divine Performing Arts 2009 World Tour.

    I saw the show on Saturday afternoon. My husband bought the tickets for something which was advertised as Chinese New Year Spectacular, but it should have been called something different, more appropriate for the religious and perhaps political context. While it was nice to see the performers practicing their millenia-old art, I was somewhat disappointed at the amateurish presentation. Perhaps different title would set this straight?
