Shen Yun a ‘Colorful cultural shock’, Says Austria Media Head

Posted by Author on March 25, 2010

BREGENZ, Austria— Andreas Seeburger, head of the Austrian media firm Radio Television Management, and Ms. Nikola Fritsche, a nurse, attended the Shen Yun Performing Arts show at the Bregenzer Festspielhaus.

The artists were honored with frequent rousing applause and before the last curtain was drawn with four ovations and curtain calls.

Mr. Seeburger and Ms. Fritsche had come from Bludenz, located about 60 kilometers from Bregenz.

“Wow, I can’t find the perfect word for what I just have seen and heard,” said an amazed Mr. Seeburger in the lobby.

After a few moments he tried again to find words that would perfectly fit the show. “I must say that it was very impressive. The colors, the choreography were something seldom seen. Given my position, I’m invited frequently to cultural shows. But something like that …”

He added; “Overall, I have to say, a colorful cultural shock presented in a manner I have never seen before. Wonderfully presented, great choreography and wonderful music and classic dance culture.”

Ms. Fritsche agreed. “It was fascinating … the costumes, just about everything—the entire performance.”

This was the first time they have come across a traditional culture show that brought stories from ancient to modern China through dance, song and music.

“We have never been presented Chinese culture in such a manner. We have never seen it presented like that,” he said.

Not only the artists, costumes and stage design were impressive in the eyes of these two, but also the fusion of Eastern and Western music, played on modern and ancient instruments.

“My friend and I are musically inclined. Music is able to express feelings. Listening to this music one hears feelings. When closing the eyes, one can paint pictures in one’s mind,” he said.

“But, I couldn’t deny myself to close my eyes and let the soothing music affect me.”

Ms. Fritsche agreed and added, “especially the gracefulness of the ladies and the kaleidoscope of colors remains in my mind. It all was very fascinating to me.”

Both had lots of praise for the male dancers.

“The men are the companions to the delicate ladies. The man that holds a protective hand over the delicate dancing creatures. This is how I would write it in the playbill,” said Mr. Seeburger.

“They were manly and exuded a lot of strength, on the other hand, the women exuded the same, but in different ways.”

Both will come and see the show again when it comes back to the area and concluded with a message. “We hope that many people will come and see this show.”
