LOS ANGELES— Enchanting its audiences on its 30-country world tour, Shen Yun arrived in L.A. this July 8, the first of five shows that depict, in music and dance, China’s rich and glorious traditional culture.
Harvey Guillen, an actor on ABC TV’s new series Huge on Monday nights, found the show engaging artistically, as well as educationally.
Mr. Guillen loved the show. “It was great, it was colorful, and entertaining. It was a great time. We were all having a blast.”
He shared with his co-attendees that Shen Yun could tell a story without words. “In a dance it was amazing there were so many stories that go back so many hundreds of years,” said Mr. Guillen. “I walked away with so much knowledge that I didn’t know before.”
Mr. Guillen said that there was so much history from China it was amazing. “It was done so well,” he said.
He learned about different ethnicities within China. “I was blown away, so many parts of China with their own dialects and their own traditions, their own wardrobe—I learned a lot of history,” says the actor.
“It was a history lesson within the arts, so it was really fantastic to watch.”
His advice to everyone: “You have to catch this show, everyone is just perfection. It is beautifully done, it’s just wonderful.”
