Shen Yun Review, by U.S. Public Television Vice President, Jan 27, 2010

Posted by Author on January 27, 2010

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.—The Broward Center for the Performing Arts was the venue for two performances of Shen Yun Performing Arts, on Jan. 26 and 27. The New York-based Shen Yun brings to audiences around the world an insight into classical Chinese dance and music with culture that is thousands of years old.

People who work in the area of performance production have a special awareness of the demands of the dancing, singing and the playing of musical instruments, and Shen Yun often receives compliments from experts in these fields. One of these people is Ms. Diane Bliss, who works for Public Television as an executive producer and vice president.

Ms. Bliss expressed her response to the show, saying, “I’m really amazed at the beauty of the performance itself. I think the performance was extraordinary. The choreography, and all the precision of the dancers was amazing. That was enhanced with the costuming and the props that were used.

“It was very, very unusual for me to really unravel the levels that are involved in Chinese dance,” saying she had come to appreciate it more.

She also remarked: “The female dancers are just so beautiful and feminine. They are exquisite … pristine is another word for me to describe them … the females were so graceful and fluid in their movements.”

Shen Yun offers dances and also solo singing performances by tenor Hong Ming, baritone Qu Yue, and soprano Pi-ju Huang, according to the official program. Ms. Bliss said she felt the tenor’s voice was very, very dynamic and extraordinary. She thought they were all very, very professional.

“The soprano was also lovely,” she said. And she had a whole new appreciation for the words that were sung as they were displayed on the backdrop. She felt it was very helpful for someone who’s not totally familiar with the songs and the lyrics.

“Obviously, it’s working!” she said. Shen Yun Performing Arts has three companies that are on tour, reaching hundreds of cities around the world. “And my understanding is that the audience are growing and growing and that those who’ve seen it one year will come back, because it’s a brand new show the second time around,” she commented.

Ms. Bliss concluded by saying, “It’s an eye-opener and needed to be shared.”
