Critique is an art form that requires a light touch, with a splash of irony and good humour to soften the blows.
Event:
From Battlefields to Imperial Palaces, the stage comes alive
Shen Yun 2014 promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime extravaganza. As the live orchestra plays from the pit, voices rise in unison from the stage. Then, the banging of thunderous battle drums. The stage comes alive with a burst of energy and colour, and aerial masters leap and flip across the stage.

'From snowcapped Tibetan peaks down to boundless Mongolian grasslands, timeless ethnic and folk dances fill Shen Yun's stage with colour and energy, as resounding drums awaken the dusty plateaus of the Middle Kingdom.' (source: Shen Yun Performing Arts).

From battlefields to Imperial Palaces. Classical Chinese dance has a history of thousands of years, sharing a common ancestry with martial arts. Its dramatic jumping, spinning, and flipping techniques are just part of the vast repertoire of movements that make classical Chinese dance—one of the most demanding and expressive art forms in the world.' (source: Shen Yun Performing Arts)


Shen Yun Performing Arts is a non-profit dance troupe based in New York. The group was founded in 2006 by practitioners of Falun Dafa and Falun Gong, after these peaceful practices were outlawed by the Chinese Communist Party.
