The Higher Origins of Traditional Beauty
CHINA WAS ONCE known as the Land of the Divine. Legend has it that each dynasty came from a unique heavenly paradise. Over the course of five millennia, deities descended to Earth and took on human form—playing roles from emperors to heroes and from sages to generals. Their wisdom and virtue laid the groundwork for China’s rich culture. It is even said that classical Chinese dance and attire mirror those in the heavens.
China’s dynasties have come and gone, and much of this heritage has been lost. Shen Yun strives to bring this ancient and mythical culture to life on stage, reviving five thousand years of profound wisdom and divine beauty.
