Shen Yun Performing Arts' "Shen Yun 2017 World Tour" is coming to a theater near you! Between December 2016 and May 2017, Shen Yun Performing Arts is stopping to perform its beautiful Chinese production that continues to amaze audiences. Shen Yun Performing Arts is a spectacular display of classical, folk, ethnic, and story-based Chinese dancing that presents the beauty of 5,000 years of Chinese history. China's three principal religions of Taoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism have laid a foundation for the development of the country's rich, distinct culture. The guiding principles of Chinese civilization, including righteousness, wisdom, benevolence, propriety, and faithfulness, are exhibited throughout.
Each performance of Shen Yun features a collection of short, themed vignettes that showcase various dance techniques, including many feats of acrobatics, displays of measured grace, and energetic group numbers, each relating to some story or aspect of Chinese life. Each segment is also accompanied by music, including orchestral compositions that blend Eastern and Western musical styles, stunning solo performances by world-class singers, and the sweet sounds of traditional Chinese instruments such as the two-stringed Chinese violin, or erhu.
One of the most remarkable aspects of the show is the breathtaking costumes. Hundreds of hand-made garments that correspond to different ethnic groups and times in Chinese history flow with the performers' deft movements. Animations and projected backdrops also set the stage with an impressive series of scenes, including prairies, forests, and celestial dreamscapes.
