Monkey King at Fire Mountain — Part 2

After being literally “blown away” by the Princess Iron Fan, the Monkey King lands on a mountain where his deity friend gives him a magical orb that can protect him from the princess’s fan.

The Monkey King returns to the princess, who he finds still unwilling to lend her powerful fan. Monkey plucks a few golden hairs from his head and transforms them...

Shuāng Fēi Yàn

A Tang poem by the famous poet Bai Juyi:

梁上有双燕 (liáng shàng yǒu shuāng yàn) Two swallows on the rafters’ span,
翩翩雄与雌 (piān piān xióng yǔ cí) A lady and a gentleman.

For thousands of years, Chinese poets have eulogized migrating swallows in celebration of the coming spring. In China’s folk culture, these speedy little songbirds are symbols of happiness and good fortune. After...

We asked some of our principal performers what was the most memorable character they’ve portrayed and why.

Here’s what Principal Dancer Xinghao Che expressed about playing the elderly gentleman who survives a treacherous ordeal in our 2016 dance The Steadfast Heart.

Is time travel possible? Many Chinese folktales suggest it is.

For example, once upon a time, during the Jin Dynasty, there lived a man named Wangzhi. One day, he took his axe and went to Shishi Mountain to harvest some firewood. As he walked, he saw a few handsome yet peculiar boys. A group of them were sitting under a tree and another by a stream. Some of them were playing chess and others...

A quick reminder about a special day!

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and we’ve got more than just a gift idea: we’ve got something to reflect her beauty, wisdom and grace.

Behold rich floral patterns evoking a royal garden in bloom, adorned with Qing dynasty fan and tassel designs, on 100% silk made in Italy. This scarf is inspired by the Shen Yun dance, Courtyard Elegance.

Happy International Dance Day!

Dance is defined as "rhythmic movement set to music." But anyone who has danced before should know that dance is much deeper. Dance can be expressive and emotional, encompassing lifetimes of traditions and culture through seemingly simple movements. In Shen Yun, a company of bilinguals, oftentimes dance is the lingua franca.

Today, we celebrate our love of...

In Chinese, chuài-yàn (踹燕) literally means, to kick the swallow—but rest assured, no animals are harmed during the execution of this technique by our performers!

Nevertheless, the name makes sense. Swallows are usually found flying high in the sky, so when kicking, a dancer's foot must extend to a great height, so as to reach the bird. And—in order to avoid having her face mercilessly pecked...

Happy Earth Day!

At the heart of traditional Chinese culture is an ancient belief: A connection exists between heaven and earth, and humanity is intertwined with the rest of the universe.

This Earth Day, we’re taking a moment to watch At One With Nature, a short film our dancers produced last year. It explores the wonders that surround us, and honors the harmony among the heavens, earth,...

It’s another beautiful day in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and our dancers have found the perfect spot.

The Mystical Udumbara

Omens that portend great events don’t always come in the form of grand prophecies—sometimes they’re small and easy to miss. Sometimes, they're only 4 mm tall.

The rare udumbara flower was first mentioned by the founder of Buddhism, Buddha Sakyamuni. He prophesied that in 3,000 years, this mystical flower would appear, and its appearance would signify that the Holy King...

Bogotá it was great to meet you!

This may have been our first time there, but we certainly felt your warm welcome, with all our shows being sold out! As one fan, Fernando Belfioretti, mentioned, it was “something you must see.”

Now we’re halfway through our show lineup in the equally warm Buenos Aires. With five shows to go, you still have the chance to catch us in 2017! [ Sypa.us Link ]
