Performing at Broward Center for the Performing Arts / Au-Rene Theater (Jan 31 - Feb 2)
Shen Yun Performing Arts returns to Broward Center with an unparalleled blend of energy, grace and originality with all-new performances. The New York-based Shen Yun is the first company to present classical Chinese dance on a global scale and has taken the world by storm, performing in over 100 cities. In a collection of vignettes, audiences journey from ancient legends to contemporary tales of courage, from the highest heavens to the dusty plateaus of the Middle Kingdom. Shen Yun is traditional Chinese culture as it was meant to be experienced. Dozens of dancers in dazzling costumes move in seamless, flowing patterns. China's ethnic and folk dance styles fill the stage with color and energy. A full, live orchestra blends East and West like no other. Thunderous battle drums, masterful vocalists, and spectacular backdrops transport you to another world. "Fantastic!" says Joy Behar, of ABC's The View. "If you ever get a chance to see it, you should." "I probably have reviewed over 3,000 to 4,000 shows since 1942 that still cannot compare to what I saw tonight," says Richard Connema, Critic for Talkin' Broadway. "I will give this production 5 stars, that's the top! The best word to use was 'mind blowing'!"
