About Shen Yun
The traditional Chinese culture Shen Yun presents cannot be seen anywhere else in the world, not even in China. There, the ruling communist regime has viewed China’s rich spiritual and artistic heritage as a threat to its ideology, and for decades sought to erase it.
But in 2006, a group of Chinese artists came together in New York with a vision of preserving the best of China’s cultural heritage and sharing it with the world. They drew courage and inspiration from their shared practice of Falun Dafa (or ‘Falun Gong’ as it is also called), a spiritual discipline common to all of Shen Yun’s artists. The company’s repertoire regularly includes important works shedding light on the plight of believers like themselves in communist China today.
