Shen Yun is back in Spain with two performances at the Auditorio Kursaal in San Sebastian
“Paradise, like I was in paradise,” said Julia Palacios, who is a painter. “I’m extremely impressed, excited. It gave me smiles, tears and goosebumps.”
“I found it wonderful, impressive, something that made me really excited to discover a culture and a type of art that I did not know, that I had never experienced firsthand, live, and that is really worthwhile,” said Carlos García, Councilor of Bilbao.
Inspired by China’s 5,000 years of culture, Shen Yun’s artists strive to revive its ancient values through music and dance.
“I feel a certain satisfaction to have participated today as a spectator and with my presence to support these artists and this staging of the greatness of China, which goes far beyond the current situation they live in… of lack of freedoms,” added García.
Audiences say Shen Yun’s performance is important for people today.
“This performance reminds us that in spite of the difficulties and tyranny of history, we have always held on to some unshakable and irreplaceable principles, such as justice, virtue, friendship, and meditation,” said Cristina Martín Jiménez who is a journalist.
“I really enjoyed the performance! At this time, we all need to hold on to (traditional values), and I think (Shen Yun) is not only recommended but should be prescribed by doctors,” she added. “I highly recommend Shen Yun, which helps us connect with our human soul and with our (traditional) values at a time when humanity is so lost. These traditional values exist in China and (Shen Yun) spreads them through art, dance, and music.”
“The truth is that it gives [a message of] peace and hope in this pandemic world we are living in, and with so much desire, we have to connect and to be all a little united,” said Marta Huarte Paño, councilor of Donostia.
