Shen Yun ‘Eleven out of Ten’ , Says Brisbane Business Owner

Posted by Author on June 3, 2010

BRISBANE, AustraliaShen Yun Performing Arts’ tour of Australia has finally come to a close with their last show at the Lyric Theatre on Wednesday night, June 3. The New York-based company is continuing on to Hawaii as it completes its 2010 world tour, bringing joy to people from all walks of life in its divine vision of cultural renewal.

The performance showcases stories from 5000 years of Chinese culture through classical dance and music. This year, for the first time, the tour is accompanied by the Shen Yun Performing Arts New York Company Orchestra—more than 40 professional musicians creating a wonderful union of Chinese and Western traditions.

Keith Sykes originally comes from England and runs his own business as a training consultant in engineering workplace health and safety. He attended Shen Yun with his wife who is a retired dancer. The couple will soon be travelling to China on holiday so had decided to come and see Shen Yun to get a taste of Chinese culture before their trip. They have already spent a lot of time in Asia, mainly in Vietnam and Taiwan.

Mr. Sykes exclaimed, “I’m just blown out of my mind! The costumes were great! Lovely, lovely dancers, and I love the atmosphere. I thought the audience were all switched on, it was magic. I hope the second half is as good as the first, it’s just great.”

He felt that he had learned a lot about Chinese culture and classical dance, commenting, “It’s very gentle, very soft and very precise and lots of clean movements, and you can tell as I know a bit about ballet, about the way they are dancing. You can tell what they are saying—very expressive.”

Mr. Sykes had felt an underlying message in the show about the current situation in China where the spiritual discipline of Falun Gong is being persecuted. One of the dances portrays a mother and her daughter being arrested for practising Falun Gong. He said, “Yes, I got a bit teary on the one about the beings coming down and the little girl being taken away. Yes, and them all going back up, I thought that was great.”

He continued with his overall impression of the performance, saying, “A lovely big strong belief because they are a different culture to us, and I like that spiritual side of things. So for me, I’ll give it an 11 out of 10. It was just great—a new experience.”

Mr. Sykes will be telling his friends that they must come and see Shen Yen, adding, “To see it is to believe it, because there are not many people that know much about it. Well worth seeing, worth every penny. It can reach anybody and everybody. It was really just great, I can’t say anything else. Yes, I have no faults at all.”

Shen Yun Performing Arts New York Company will now travel to Hawaii to perform four shows at Concert Hall, Neal Blaisdell Center, Honolulu, from June 4-6. For more information visit
