Shen Yun “An Eye-Opener”, Says Grammy Award Finalist in Taiwan

Posted by Author on April 26, 2010

TAIPEI, Taiwan—Xiao Qing-Yang, a designer of album-packaging, has been a Grammy Award Finalist three times. For the past three years he has been seeing Shen Yun’s posters while overseas during the Chinese New Year. He thought that the Chinese people in New York and Los Angeles must have really liked to watch Eastern shows to celebrate the Chinese New Year. However, he didn’t expect that he would also see Shen Yun in Taiwan. He felt especially pleased.

After seeing the performance of Shen Yun Performing Arts New York Company at the National Taiwan University of Arts on April 25, Mr. Xiao said, “I finally saw the show.”

When seeing the Shen Yun posters in overseas cities, Mr. Xiao thought that the show was only for overseas Chinese people to have some consolation for seeing Chinese dances during the Chinese New Year. He was happy for his friends in those cities to have a great Eastern show for the Chinese New Year. He happily said, “If I have the chance to see it in other cities next time, I must feel intimated.”

“I haven’t seen such an Eastern style of fairies, goddesses, and stories for a long time. I’m so happy to see them today! There are a lot of musicians and dancing artists here. Their abilities and performances were outstanding!” Mr. Xiao said.

He also said that Shen Yun’s artists performed wholeheartedly and it showed that they have worked very hard. “Whenever there was a plot, I had increasing admiration for Shen Yun, because it’s quite delicate in all details. I can tell that they have received very strict training. From my point of view as an artist, I think it needs a lot of time to practice to have such abilities to perform on stage.”

Mr. Xiao was particularly impressed by the dance Handkerchiefs. He said, “There was a program of the dance with handkerchiefs. I first thought that there were special wires designed in the handkerchiefs. Afterwards, I found there was none. The handkerchiefs were flying in the air completely dependent on their superb skills. … It’s an eye-opener.”

Mr. Xiao, born in 1966, said that living in this world, he had felt there were a lot of things that couldn’t be understood or explained. Seeing the Shen Yun performance he said he saw a lot of delicate Eastern culture and the feelings that Eastern people have towards Gods, heaven, and earth. “Actually, I’m kind of feeling the situation that it seems we were also Gods coming to the world. After cultivating something, we are then preparing to go back to heaven.”

He said he felt that seeing such an artistic representation was a great encouragement. “Today I saw such a show, which seemed to remind me of something, like what I come here [to the world] for! Although I haven’t found an exact answer, I am glad to have an opportunity to see such a show.” (The Epochtimes)
