Renowned Professor From China Says Would Like to See Shen Yun Hundred Times

Posted by Author on March 21, 2010

TAIPEI, Taiwan— March 20 was the second day of Shen Yen Performing Arts’ show appearing in Taipei, the capital city of Taiwan. Shen Yen’s reputation attracted viewers from all over northern Taiwan to Taipei over the weekend so that all seats in the auditorium of National Dr. Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall were occupied.

Professor Xiao, a renowned figure in China, was among those attending. In an interview, he said he loved the entire set of programs. “You see, my hands got swollen because I kept clapping during the show!” he exclaimed.

Professor Xiao said he was very fortunate to catch Shen Yen when he traveled to Taipei this time. His first time to see the show, he said, “It is really good. The show is so exquisite that you can’t see anything like it elsewhere.”

Shen Yun performance blends the cultural characteristic and connotations of various Chinese ethnicities. Of the dances, Professor Xiao was particularly impressed by “Mongolian Hospitality” and In a Miao Village. He added that all the dancing performances were very unique—no matter whether they were depicting Mongolian or Miao, the dance illustrated the ethnic characteristics very well.

After seeing that Shen Yen vividly exhibits the quintessence of traditional Chinese culture on stage, Professor Xiao shared his thoughts about his beloved Chinese traditions: “Chinese culture is very broad and Shen Yen show tries to pass it down to future generations. The programs in the show, such as Imperial Archers and Wu Song Battles the Tiger, truthfully reflect the history after careful investigation. We have all read the story in the novel Water Margin before. However, we have to resort to our imagination to recreate the past, and now the scenes of the drama illustrate the story right in front of our eyes. This is not easy to achieve.”

Xiao wondered “Who first wrote the script of the drama?” When he was told that most artists associated with the Shen Yen Performing Arts group are overseas Chinese, whose mission was to pass down the finest part of Chinese traditional culture, he praised this effort, saying, “It is really great!” He felt Shen Yen‘s passing down ancient tradition by performing dramatic dances on the stage was an excellent idea.

Recalling the superb dramatic dances and the dynamic backdrop he saw in the performance, Xiao kept nodding his head and said in an admiring tone, “It is extraordinary. The color is very bright and attractive. The design is perfect.”

At this point, he showed his hands to the interviewer, joking “You see, my hands get swollen because I kept clapping in the show!” Xiao’s friends, who accompanied him to the show, affirmed that.

Referring to the fact that Shen Yen’s public performance is still prohibited in China and how lucky Taiwan is to have the opportunity, Professor Xiao said, “I definitely would like to see the show again. The show is organized so well that it will never lose its appeal. I guess I could watch it more than a hundred times.”
