Established in 2006 with a mission of “reviving 5,000 years of divinely inspired Chinese culture,” New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts is a touring troupe comprising elaborately costumed classical Chinese dancers, talented vocalists and an orchestra that fuses East and West. Presented as collections of vignettes, Shen Yun’s performances play out in front of digitized scenery projected onto a high-tech backdrop. Shen Yun’s espousal of Falun Dafa (aka Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline banned by the Communist Chinese government in 1999) is in no way hidden in these dazzling spectacles, which has sparked a fair amount of controversy.
