F OR 5000 YEARS IN CHINA, CUL­TURE WAS HER­ALDED AS A DIVINE GIFT. ITS GLORY WAS THE IN­SPI­RA­TION OF COUNT­LESS ARTISTS AND PO­ETS, UN­TIL THIS HER­ITAGE WAS NEARLY LOST… Based in New York, Shen Yun Per­form­ing Arts seeks to re­vive this once ma­jes­tic tra­di­tion by cre­at­ing a pro­duc­tion wor­thy in its beauty of this noble his­tory— some­thing that en­riches the lives of au­di­ences in pow­er­ful, last­ing ways. The New York-based Shen Yun is the first company to present clas­si­cal Chi­nese dance on a global scale and has taken the world by storm, per­form­ing in over 100 ci­ties. In a col­lec­tion of vignettes, au­di­ences jour­ney from an­cient leg­ends to con­tem­po­rary tales of courage, from the high­est heavens to the dusty plateaus of the Mid­dle King­dom. Shen Yun is tra­di­tional Chi­nese cul­ture as it was meant to be ex­pe­ri­enced. Dozens of dancers in daz­zling cos­tumes move in seam­less, flow­ing pat­terns. China’s eth­nic and folk dance styles fill the stage with colour and en­ergy. A full, live orches­tra blends East and West like no other. Thun­der­ous bat­tle drums, mas­ter­ful vo­cal­ists, and spec­tac­u­lar back­drops trans­port you to another world. Six shows only at The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast and Con­cert Hall, QPAC from 31 Jan to 4 Feb. Tick­ets on sale now.
