In ancient times, China was known as the Land of the Divine. Everyone, from emperors to the common people, believed that their culture was a gift from heaven. They lived in harmony with the universe and saw a connection among all things. Traditional Chinese culture carried these principles for thousands of years—until this world was lost.
At Shen Yun, guests can visit this lost civilization. To make this journey possible, the group has pushed the boundaries of performing arts. They combine ancient legends with technological innovations, and historically authentic costumes with breathtaking animated backdrops. They let classical Chinese dance do the storytelling, and share beautifully diverse ethnic and folk traditions.
