About Shen Yun

For thousands of years, China was considered by its inhabitants to be “Shen Zhou” or “Divine Land” where deities and mortals intermingled. During this time Buddhists, Taoists and other religious disciplines were centermost to society. It is the country that had such profound philosophers as Confucius, Lao Tsu and Chuang Tsu among many. One of the prevailing practices was known as Falun Dafa which is based on three principles: Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance. In 1949 the communist regime seized power in China and its first target was religion and philosophy which it felt was in contradiction to party policy. Even 64 years later the persecution has not ended. As recently as 1999 there have been continued crackdowns by the government to eradicate all resemblance of ancient culture and religions. In spite of this constant harassment, the people of China have kept their culture alive by the secret practice of Falun Dafa and occasional public protests against the regime.

How Shen Yun Show Came About

In 2006, a group of leading classical Chinese artists came together in New York City with one mission, to revive the true and divine culture of ancient China. From these humble beginnings of a single company, the Shen Yun family has grown to three dance companies and three orchestras totaling 300 artists touring 20 counties and 100 cities. It is unfortunate to add that to this day, Shen Yun has never performed in China or Hong Kong and has been harassed around the world by agents of the Chinese Communist regime.

It is hoped that as time goes on the government of Communist China will realize the folly that oppression of an entire peoples that through global communications has become part of this global village. We are all now even more connected through communication and the arts then ever in the history of the world. Let us pray that the power of truth comes through so that all people may be free. This is where Shen Yun comes in.

Shen Yun on Tour

Shen Yun is not just a show of acrobats, dancers and singers. It is an event that transcends history and shows what a new China can be. It is 5,000 years of carefully documented history up to the present in which you feel the performance. It is a political protest against tyranny.

Millions of people have seen Shen Yun. Standing ovations at the world's top venues, royalty attending in Europe, sold-out shows throughout North America, and packed houses across Asia have made Shen Yun an international phenomenon.

Since there is so much history to tell, each year Shen Yun’s group of choreographers, composers, artists and dancers come together to create an entirely new show. Using full stage synchronized dancing, exciting music and scores of handmade costumes in front of carefully crafted digital backdrops they fill the stages around the world.
