Shen Yun Performing Arts Revives Chinese Culture at DeVos Performance Hall
Every legend has its history. Every story has its truths. And the best are rarely forgotten.
For the past 5,000 years, China amassed a diverse legacy of heroes, myths, and values that still resonate in the
present. Today, Shen Yun Performing Arts is reviving the essence of traditional Chinese culture in full color on
stages around the world. On February 11-12, the company will come to DeVos Performance Hall for
performances at 7:30 PM each night.
Gorgeous backdrops extend the stage, transporting the audience to distant lands and eras. An orchestra that
combines Western and Chinese instruments like no other accompanies the dancers with stirring scores.
Ride with Mongolians across endless steppes. Recall the grandeur of an ancient Tang Dynasty palace. Down in the
valley, ladies of the Yi ethnic group dance in rainbow skirts by the river. High up in the heavens, celestial fairies trail
silken sleeves through the clouds. Resounding drums awaken the dusty plateaus of the Middle Kingdom.
Shen Yun strives to capture the spirit of traditional Chinese culture and its beliefs. Ancient literary classics extol the
compassionate, courageous, and loyal, values embodied by the most memorable characters. Thrill in the triumph
of the great General Yue Fei; cheer on the Monkey King as he tricks a stubborn foe; and witness how these values
still endure in contemporary China.
Shen Yun bridges past and present in an uplifting, inspiring, and indelible performance.
