Falun Dafa Association of D.C. presents
Shen Yun: 5,000 Years of Civilization Reborn

Thousands of years ago, China was known as the Land of the Divine. The ancient Chinese believed that their glorious civilization was a gift from the heavens. But that world was lost—until now. Shen Yun brings this world to life in a show that can't be seen in China today. Fascinating stories from 5,000 years of Chinese culture are told through the vivid athleticism and deep expressiveness of classical Chinese dance, one of the most demanding art forms in the world. A groundbreaking East-West Orchestra captures the spirit of ancient China. Grand animated backdrops place the audience right inside the action. And Shen Yun's uplifting energy is something you can feel long after the curtain falls.

Based in New York, Shen Yun is entirely non-profit. Its artists have come from around the world to revive this glorious heritage. Since its establishment in 2006, the company has become a global sensation, performing for over one million audience members around the world.

Performance Timing: Act I - 75 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Act II - 60 min.

“Extraordinary! It was exquisitely beautiful.” — Cate Blanchett, Academy Award–winning actress

“5,000 years of Chinese music and dance in one night!” — The New York Times
