Shen Yun ‘Lively and Rhythmic,’ Says Bank VP
BUFFALO, N.Y.—With yet another breathtaking performance of classical Chinese dance and music, Shen Yun Performing Arts wrapped up its two-day run at the Shea’s Performing Arts Center on Friday evening.
Joe Pici, a vice president with a major commercial bank, said the performance was “lively and rhythmic.”
“I enjoyed the energy,” he said. “[The dancers] are very in sync.”
“They’re very talented,” added his wife Joan.
New York-based Shen Yun features classical Chinese dance, an ancient art form with a history of thousands of years, as well as ethnic dances from different parts of China.
There are many aspects of Shen Yun that make its presentations unique, such as its orchestra that combines traditional Chinese instruments with classical Western instruments, and animated digital backdrops that interact with the dances on stage.
“It’s kind of fun the way that a person comes down [from the screen] and then comes up from the floor. It’s enjoyable,” Mr. Pici said, referring to how, in some of the pieces, a character appears to fly from the backdrop onto the stage and vice versa in a seamless transition.
“I like the way there’s the flow of a person coming in and they come up from the floor and they’re right in front of you.”
Noting that he also enjoyed the hundreds of handmade costumes in the performance, Mr. Pici said Shen Yun’s show is “bright and colorful and lively.”
