Experience the wonder of China’s divine culture. See legends, myths, and heavenly realms spring to life through classical Chinese dance. Watch the dazzling costumes of ethnic and folk dances fill the stage with colour and energy. Let stories of courage, singers’ soaring voices, and powerful flips inspire you, and dazzling animated backdrops transport you to another world. Experience Shen Yun.
IN ANCIENT TIMES, China was known as the Land of the Divine. Everyone, from emperors to the common people, believed that their culture was a gift from heaven. They lived in harmony with the universe and saw a connection among all things. Traditional Chinese culture carried these principles for thousands of years—until this world was lost.
We now invite you to visit this lost civilisation. To make this journey possible, we have pushed the boundaries of performing arts. We combine ancient legends with technological innovations, and historically authentic costumes with breathtaking animated backdrops. We let classical Chinese dance do the storytelling, and share with you beautifully diverse ethnic and folk traditions. Filled with an enchanting orchestral sound, this is a mesmerising experience you won’t find anywhere else.
THE AUTHENTIC CHINESE culture Shen Yun presents can’t be seen in another show or even in China. There, the Communist Party sees traditional culture as a threat to its power and for decades has tried to destroy it. It nearly succeeded.
But in 2006, a group of elite Chinese artists came together in New York with a mission — to revive traditional culture and share it with the world. They created Shen Yun and brought this majestic culture back from the brink of extinction.
Join us in this historical moment. It is an unforgettable journey!
Based in New York, Shen Yun Performing Arts – a non-profit organisation – has become the world’s premier classical Chinese dance and music company.
Shen Yun perform on stage for approximately 2 hours, with a 20 minute interval.
