Shen Yun “perfect”, “The dances are especially spectacular”, says well-known Taiwan photographer

Posted by Author on March 21, 2010

TAIPEI, Taiwan— Mr. Zhou Zhigang, a well-known photographer, who has spent more than 50 years refining the art of photography, attended the Shen Yen Performing Arts‘ show in Taipei on Saturday evening, March 20, with his wife. In an interview following the show he commented, “I have seen many dramas and performances in various countries around the world, yet I feel Shen Yen is better than any other show.”

Mr. Zhou is best known for his endeavors in promoting Chinese photography by integrating the concept of poetry into the image. He used to assist photography maestro Lang Jingshan in re-establishing the China Photography Association in Taiwan. Mr. Zhou is also the primary initiator for the Asian Film & Art Federation and the Chinese Artists and Photographers Association. His name is well known in the photography communities across the Taiwan Strait. He has received many domestic and international honorable awards and has been listed in the Who’s Who of UK, USA, China and Taiwan.

With delight, Mr. Zhou praised Shen Yen, “The performance is perfect no matter whether it is about the backdrop design or the music. The dances are especially spectacular.”

Explaining how the music of the Shen Yen orchestra fascinated him, Mr. Zhou said, “An ancient poem reads, ‘Only in the divine world, and seldom in the earthly world can this song be heard.’ I would like to say such good music can only be heard at a Shen Yen performance and seldom in Taiwan.”

As a well-known artist, Mr. Zhou highly praised Shen Yen’s artistic achievements. He said, “From the viewpoint of arts, of most importance are the aesthetics. The scene settings of Shen Yen’s dances, and the variations associated with the dances, are all very beautiful.”

Mr. Zhou added, “I have seen a lot of dances. I think choreography is very important. The choreography of Shen Yen’s dances is just outstanding. A simple story like Wu Song Battles the Tiger is choreographed to include a variety of dancing movements such that the story can be interpreted so vividly. I think this is truly amazing.”

The dynamic backdrop of the stage also caught Mr. Zhou’s attention. Among the programs in the first half of the show, “Hesitate No Longer” by soprano Huang Pi-ju and “A Message to the World” by Baritone Qu Yue, stood out for him.
