Shen Yun ‘Absolutely epic’, Says Disney Actor

LOS ANGELESShen Yun Performing Arts is in Los Angeles at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion throughout the weekend. This unique show aspires to preserve and promote China’s 5,000-year-old majestic authentic culture.

Many audience members were from L.A.’s artistic and entertainment community. Doug Haley, who plays Walter in Good Luck Charlie on the Disney Channel, attended the opening show on Thursday evening, July 8.

“I thought it was beautiful,” said the actor. “Extremely talented performers. It was a beautiful marriage of song and dance. It was exquisite. It was very colorful, very vibrant. Epic. E-P-I-C.”

Mr. Hayley also commented on the successful “marriage” of the Shen Yun Orchestra playing Eastern and Western instruments.

“You don’t notice that you’re listening to French horn and classical European instruments and Asian instruments and the gong … the way they’re fused together. You don’t realize you’re listening to completely different traditional cultures infused as one, and I thought that was really cool how they put that together.”

The classical Chinese two-stringed instrument, the erhu, took his breath away.

“I thought that was stunning and breathtaking and totally had me in awe. That was actually my favorite part, that composition.”

Shen Yun’s show is rich with information on Chinese heritage, leaving Mr. Haley eager to learn more.

“This is the first traditional Chinese show, you know, I would have liked to learn more. I feel like coming in very naïve to Chinese culture as I am, you did learn a lot of the history, particularly in the end with the scriptures of Buddha and the arrival of the scriptures [The Buddha’s Teachings Spread Far and Wide], but a lot of it was folklore and folktales and kind of mythology.”

“I don’t know how you could come and not be inspired by the dancing and the music, I mean it is absolutely epic,” Mr. Haley continued. “I could tell everyone was extremely well trained. It was beautiful. The way they worked together. The symmetry, the sync of everything. It was really beautiful to take in and to watch.”

Describing the spiritual element of the performance, Mr. Haley said, “with the monks, there’s definitely a sense of enlightenment and there was one dance number that was focusing on the point as human beings, we’re always searching for something. What are we looking for? You need faith to find whatever you’re looking for. Faith is one of the cornerstones that will help you along your journey … the show reiterated that point so absolutely,” said Mr. Haley.

“Check out Shen Yun!” he concluded, urging everyone to attend the show.
