After full house shows for the last three years, the New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts is coming back to Canberra, this time with a live orchestra and an all new programme on 21-23 May 2010. The company was previously called Divine Performing Arts.

Brilliant. Inspiring. Glorious.

Shen Yun Performing Arts presents classical Chinese dance and music in a lavishly colorful and exhilarating show. Its masterful choreography ranges from grand imperial processions to legions of thunderous drums, with gorgeously costumed dancers moving in stunning synchronized patterns.

Spectacular visuals take you to another world, with blossoming landscapes and celestial palaces appearing on beautiful animated backdrops. Groundbreaking music seamlessly combines the best of the East and West, giving each dance an unmistakable flair.

Ancient legends of virtue and modern tales of courage are brought to life by over a dozen dances and songs, making for one extraordinary, uplifting, and unforgettable experience.

The Shen Yun Difference

Shen Yun Performing Arts brings together over a hundred of the world’s foremost classically trained dancers, choreographers, and musicians. Based in New York, Shen Yun is independent of China’s political regime and proud to include artists who practice the Falun Gong meditation. It seeks to revive and breathe new life into traditional Chinese culture while providing an experience of sublime beauty.

Any word on the winners yet?

i’d like to win these tickets because: I accidently put my hand though a blender while making soup. After waiting over 27 hours @ Canberra Hospital, I deserve some entertainment & pain relief!

I am too tight to buy myself tickets – but reckon it would be awesome… 🙂

My yung wan wants to see Shen Yun
He saw them outside Supabarn
He was transfixed
I am now inamix
‘Cause all my muney is garn

If my children attended Shen Yun
They would most certainly swoon.
And I could be clever
(or my name’s not trevar)
And introduce them to a new tune.

(okay, so it’s 27 words, but it’s a limerick; that’s got to count for something!)

I would love to go, it’s my birthday on Saturday the 22nd. It would be such a great present for me! I’ve wanted to see this for ages:)

If my littlest girl
could see Shen Yun twirl
She’d forget about learning ballet
and I could sleep in on a Sat’day!

I love Chinese food, and seeing the people who are skilled enough to make that food dance would be great. Especially if they use chilli.

25 words exactly.

Hy georgesgenitals, I hadn’t realised they were going to make the food dance. Even more reason to go! And food fight? Will there be a food fight?

I’d love to take my mother for her 60th birthday: my brother moved to China a while ago and this would remind her of him.

25 words exactly.

These guys are spectacular, I have a DVD of one of their shows and I highly recommend that if you can afford it, it’s worth every cent to go and see.

I’d like to win the tickets because: My father-in-law has diabetes and is going blind. I’d like him to see this while he still can. Not a sympathy thing, just the truth.

Otherwise I’ll just take the DVD and some popcorn around so the inlaws can see it!

Isn’t Shen Yun a front for Falun Gong? Can’t wait for the Scientologists to get into theatrical productions. It’s Battlefield Earth: The Musical!

MsCheeky’s grown-up boy lives in China. On Mother’s Day, I wore my Mao t’shirt and hat and drank Tsingtao beer to feel the love from afar.

Damn, 26 words. Best I could do, though perhaps ‘beer’ was redundant to the cognoscenti.
