Lord Mayor of Cardiff Calls Shen Yun ‘Out of this world’

Posted by Author on April 27, 2010

CARDIFF, United Kingdom— The Lord Mayor of Cardiff, Councillor Brian Griffiths, called Shen Yun “out of this world” on Tuesday April 27.

After watching the New York-based performing arts company’s debut Welsh performance, the Mayor was impressed: “We thought the show would be good. But it was more than good, it was fantastic.”

Mr Griffiths was particularly taken with the dancers from Shen Yun Performing Arts Touring Company: “What amazes me is the timing of these dancers with so many on the stage. Every part of that dance is perfectly timed. It is beautiful to watch,” he said. “It’s they way they can move across the stage in such precision. They look as if they’re floating across the stage. It’s beautiful to watch. It is really beautiful.”

The Lord Mayor also said it was good to have classical Chinese dance explained by the hosts Leeshai Lemish and Jing Xie. He said it was very interesting to understand Chinese culture and see a “different type of show in this centre.”

This is the first time Shen Yun has performed at the Wales Millennium Centre. The centre is the most prominent arts venue in Wales and home to the national opera, national orchestra, national dance as well as other literature and theatre companies.

Mr Griffiths had already provided his well wishes prior to the show. He wrote in the programme book that Cardiff has a formal twinning agreement [twin sister city] with the port city of Xiamen in China, and that the Welsh city is proud of its association with China.

Mr Griffiths has worked for the Conservative Party for over 50 years, serving on Cardiff City Council from 1983 to 1996. He became Lord Mayor in 2009.

He said he hoped Shen Yun could return to Cardiff: “Anybody that’s missed this show has missed a beautiful show,” he said.

“It’s a wonderful, wonderful show.”

Shen Yun Performing Arts will perform once more in Cardiff on April 28, and then at Louvain-La Neuve, Belgium, from April 30 to May 11. (The Epochtimes)
