Shen Yun

February 26, 2016 @ 8:00 am - March 5, 2016 @ 9:00 pm

| $85

Legend has it that Chinese arts and culture were gifts bestowed by the heavens. In ancient China, students and scholars would sit in meditation to calm their minds and inspire creativity. But in recent decades, these traditions have been all but completely lost. Today, where can you go to discover authentic Chinese arts and culture?

The answer is somewhere closer than you might think. In January, the world’s premier classical Chinese music and dance company, Shen Yun Performing Arts, returns to Queensland. The show is a celebration of traditional Chinese culture as it was meant to be—a study in grace, wisdom, and virtues distilled from five millennia of civilization.

At the core of a Shen Yun performance are classical Chinese dance, ethnic and folk dances, ancient legends, and modern tales of courage. Dance is accompanied by a one-of-a-kind orchestra, which combines both classical Western and Chinese instruments. Vocalists, bright costumes, and animated digital backdrops complete the Shen Yun experience, one that has been described as both enriching and inspiring.

Shen Yun will perform at:

Lyric Theatre, QPAC, 26–28 Feb

Empire Theatre, Toowoomba 2 Mar

The Arts Centre Gold Coast 4–5 Mar
