Chinese Citizens Travel to Taiwan to See Shen Yun
CHIAYI, Taiwan—Dozens of audience members traveled from Mainland China to attend Shen Yun Performing Arts New York Company’s final Chiayi performance, April 4.
Although Shen Yun cannot currently perform in China, DVD versions of the Shen Yun performance have been widely circulating in China.
“I hope Shen Yun can perform in China soon” was the wish of many.
“Shen Yun rediscovers the traditional Chinese culture!” said one lady. Another, a Chinese gentleman: “After seeing Shen Yun, I feel China has hope!”
Mr. Lee (a pseudonym) said, “All of the Shen Yun programs are very good. I had a kind of sacred feeling when seeing it in the theater. It can purify one’s soul.”
“I felt inexpressibly touched. It’s quite different from watching it on DVD,” said Ms. Han (a pseudonym), “I don’t know why I burst into tears. I was in tears throughout the performance.”
Tourist from China: Shen Yun is China’s Hope
Among the audience were Mr. and Mrs. Lu (pseudonyms). “I was especially impressed with the last piece Before Disaster, The Divine Is Rescuing. It was indeed very sacred,” said Mrs. Lu, “Shen Yun presents the traditional beauty. As the moral standard in Mainland China is declining due to the dying out of the traditional culture, Shen Yun is definitely China’s hope.”
Mr. Lu added, “Shen Yun ushered us into the realm of the traditional culture.”
“The objective of our trip to Taiwan is mainly to bring our children to see Shen Yun. In Mainland China, we often watched the Shen Yun performance by playing its DVD; however, I felt it was not enough. So, we took advantage of the sightseeing trip to Taiwan to see the Shen Yun performance here. Our children were also touched and burst into tears during the performance.
“Shen Yun is indeed amazing. After seeing the Shen Yun performance, I feel especially tranquil and peaceful.”
“From the very beginning of the Shen Yun program, we seemed to enter a divine world, and I was touched to tears instantly,” said Mr. Lu. “It is by all means worthwhile, as it is indeed so wonderful.”
“All of us are looking forward to seeing Shen Yun perform in China someday,” Mrs. Lu concluded, “It is our sincere wish.”
