With five companies, Shen Yun has become the largest classical
Chinese dance troop in the world touring more than 100 cities every year.
This makes the Chinese Communist Party panic because this dance
represents everything good and beautiful that the Chinese Communists have destroyed.
Naturally they try to destroy Shen Yun as well.
Shen Yun has aroused the opposition of the Chinese Communist Party(CCP) because their divinely inspired dance show attracts full houses in theatres across the whole world.
US based and created by Falun Gong practitioners Shen Yun shows the beauty of traditional, divinely inspired Chinese culture while also informing people of the atrocities against human rights and free speech in China today...
The entire thing is explained in both Mandarin AND English during the show. Two MCs come out between EVERY dance or solo and explain EXACTLY what the point is.

The average American that attends the event probably has little knowledge of the history of the dance company and the disdain of it by the commie government. I would suspect, therefore, that the average American comes out of the theater with a total lack of knowledge of the politics of the issue and with a higher, historical regard for the country of China as a whole. In that broad sense, the Peking should be pleased. Propaganda can work both ways doesn't it?

My thoughts about Shen Yun are in the post I made a couple of weeks ago after my son and I went to see it:
Shen Yun -- Reviving Ancient Chinese Culture
Did you see their latest performance?
