When you watch Shen Yun’s principal dancer Steven Wang on stage—performing in the role of a mighty general or a brilliant strategist, it is hard to imagine the young child left at home with his parents both jailed. Steven’s parents are among the millions of people in China persecuted for their faith. They were arrested and tortured time and again for practicing Falun Gong and, in the end, Steven had to leave China and could not even see his father one last time.Steven had always dreamed of becoming a dancer but now, in New York, dance took on new meaning.“I could not go back to China, so all I could do was to continue using art to expose this persecution,” he says. “These were things that really happened to people close to me.”“One day,” he says, “this persecution will finally come to an end.”
