Shen Yun “uplifting and exciting”, says Member of European Parliament

Posted by Author on May 14, 2010

LOUVAIN-LA-NEUVE, BelgiumShen Yun Performing Arts Touring Company held one last show at Louvain-la-Neuve’s Aula Magna on Tuesday, May 11, ending its 10-show run in the Belgian city.

Among the enthusiastic crowd at the Tuesday evening show was Roger Helmer, a member of the European Parliament representing East Midlands, UK.

“I had a wonderful time,” Mr. Helmer said in an interview during intermission.

“I was just thinking ‘it’s fantastic, it’s so full of energy, it’s so elegant’.”

The skills and physical ability of the performers was quite impressive for the MEP.

“I just don’t know how they manage to do it,” he said, referring to the performers.

Mr. Helmer was first elected in 1999, and then re-elected for a second term in 2004. He sits on several committees, including unemployment and petitions. Before entering politics, he held senior management positions in a number of different large multinational companies.

He elaborated on the last piece before the intermission, Tibetan Dance of Praise, which particularly caught his attention.

“It just seemed to have a combination of energy and elegance, and the costumes were wonderful, and it really was uplifting and exciting,” he said.

The animated backdrops used in the show portraying celestial palaces and beautiful landscapes were quite appealing for the MEP as well.

“The backdrops were very impressive. For the Himalayas, for example, that works very effusive,” he said.

“It’s the action and the movement, and the music that really makes the show. It’s wonderful.”

Mr. Helmer said he would recommend the show to his friends.

“They should just come and see the show if they can.”

The New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts Touring Company will perform in Neuchatel, Switzerland, from May 13 to 16.
