Presented by Falun Dafa Association of Ottawa – January 2-4, 2014 National Arts Centre Southam Hall
Every year, Shen Yun Performing Arts unveils an entirely new lineup of dances, songs and musical scores that offer an exhilarating production on a grand scale. These exquisite performances celebrate the grandeur of classical Chinese dance and music inspired by the myths, legends, and divine beauty of 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture.
Since 2007, Shen Yun has dazzled millions of showgoers in more than 100 cities—including 13 in Canada. In January 2010, the NAC drew sellout crowds and had to offer standing room tickets for every show! The New York-based Shen Yun features three touring companies, each with some 100 exceptional artists, including winners of top international competitions in dance and music.
For thousands of years, Chinese artists cultivated virtue, believing that to create true art worthy of the heavens, there must first be inner purity. Today, Shen Yun’s artists follow this noble tradition. The result is a performance of consummate beauty, purity and goodness. It is a show that nourishes the soul.
Weaving wondrous stories of heavenly realms, enchanting dreams, and the classic battle between good and evil, the breathtaking pageantry evokes themes of virtue, compassion and courage at the heart of China’s divinely inspired culture—from ancient tales of valor to modern-day epics such as those of Falun Dafa.
(Falun Dafa is a spiritual discipline that combines the practice of meditation and slow-moving qigong exercises with a moral philosophy. Falun Dafa emphasizes morality and the cultivation of virtue in its central tenets of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. Through moral rectitude and the practice of meditation, practitioners of Falun Dafa aspire to better health and, ultimately, spiritual enlightenment.)
Hear soaring songs by master vocalists that will move and inspire you. Enjoy a unique orchestra that embraces Chinese and Western instruments in a startling fusion. Be spellbound by stunning costumes, brilliant choreography, and state-of-the-art dynamic backdrops.
