Shen Yun performed in Mexico City from May 4 to May 7. The company’s artists work to present 5,000 years of traditional culture through classical Chinese dance.
Actress Ariadne Díaz said she wanted to see Shen Yun for many years. She finally saw it this year: “I was always very impressed by the colors, people’s comments, how much they got to learn about Chinese culture through this show. And today we gave ourselves the opportunity, now that my son could come with us, we have enjoyed it very much. The fact is that you leave here full of color, music, talent. Soaking in another culture is very nice.”
“It’s a really moving experience,” said dancer and Miss Mesoamérica Suzzet De La Hidalga.
“I loved being able to see about the culture, about this millennia-old culture, and that also gives us all this emotional and spiritual focus. And it’s a really wonderful thing that not only gives you an artistic experience, but also a spiritual and moving experience. So I loved that.”
Audience members also commented on the deeper message behind Shen Yun’s storytelling.
“Each performance is impressive, isn’t it? They manage to very clearly transmit this message that has to do with returning to spirituality, searching inward, reencountering the Creator. In short, it is a show that also, besides being visually thrilling, invites you to reflect. I believe that this is also very much appreciated,” said TV actor and radio host Javier Poza.
“And honestly, I still have that feeling that [Shen Yun] takes you on a journey to your inner self, to know that you can be a better person and that in the world, it seems to me that we have to rescue those values that simply lead us to peace and above all, to eradicate division and hatred,” said federal judge Rubén Sánchez Valencia.
“I don’t think there is a single person leaving [the theater] without a smile on their lips, but also with peace in their soul, like me,” he said.
