‘Full of Grace’: Aix-En-Provence Audience Amazed by Shen Yun’s Artistry

April 22, 2024

Shen Yun Performing Arts took audiences in Aix-En-Provence, France, on a journey through ancient China on April 10 and 11. Audience members were mesmerized by heavenly scenes, a live orchestra, and an interactive backdrop.

“It is full of grace, colorful scenes, music that mixes Western and Chinese aspects. And there is grace, grace, and grace,” said Sylvain Clément, the account director at Trivium Packaging.

“I’m amazed, amazed by the choreography and the colors. I’m so surprised. I’m also learning about Chinese culture, because I’m not very familiar with it,” said Luc Letalenet, the director at SOCOTEC.

Isabelle Rebelo, a business owner, marveled at Shen Yun’s artistry and felt the performance took her to a different dimension.

“I really loved the music, which was magnificent, and the colorful costumes, with everything swirling around them, we were in another world,” she said.

“I really enjoyed the story, the mythology, and the tradition,” said Alexander Bonello, the co-owner of Shabby Chic World.

“We really enjoyed it. It moves us deeply because we get this smile, this cheerfulness, and this story behind it all,” said Yannick Barraud, an ophthalmologist.

Shen Yun draws inspiration from China’s 5,000 years of culture and virtues, which ancient Chinese people believed to be inspired by the divine.

“I can only agree with the message that humanity needs a guide and a mind that is open to greater hope,” said Jean-Louis Tholance, an artist.

“It’s wonderful that they’ve kept this spirituality. And these legends, these tales and legends. It’s wonderful to have all of these preserved,” said Christian Drevin, a former business owner.

“I felt the power of a thought and a will to maintain, retain, revive a whole history and a whole culture. And I want to support it,” said Brigitte Planchet-Barraud, a department head at Hôpital Saint-Joseph.

Shen Yun brings an all-new program to audiences every year, including new dances, music, stories, and backdrops. Audience members applauded Shen Yun’s efforts to preserve an art that was once almost lost.

José Rebelo, a business owner, said he felt energized after Shen Yun’s performance.

“It was light, it was reinvigorating, it was full of smiles. You simply can’t stay unaffected after this show.”

“We’d obviously recommend it for its beauty, for its energy, and for the uplift it can give you,” said Florence Tholance, an artist.

“I had a really great time and enjoyed it. With lots of incredible things to see, intense emotions, it is something that has to be experienced,” said Amandine Largeteau, the founder of Hyphen Advisory.

Shen Yun will open the curtain for eight performances in Montpellier, France, from April 23 through 28.
