Falun Dafa Association of D.C. presents: Shen Yun

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 - Sunday, April 21, 2019

Shen Yun's unique artistic vision expands theatrical experience into a multi-dimensional, inspiring journey through one of humanity’s greatest treasures—the five millennia of traditional Chinese culture.

Search for Current Events


This epic production immerses you in stories reaching back to the most distant past. You’ll explore realms even beyond our visible world. Featuring one of the world’s oldest art forms—classical Chinese dance—along with patented scenographic effects and all-original orchestral works, Shen Yun opens a portal to a civilization of enchanting beauty and enlightening wisdom.

Traditional Chinese culture, with its profoundly optimistic worldview and deep spiritual roots, had been lost until now. Today, only the New York–based Shen Yun is keeping this precious heritage alive on stage. And it’s an experience that will take your breath away.

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

"It was inspirational and educational – a performance that I encourage everyone to see and all of us to learn from."
— Donna Karan, creator of Donna Karan New York and DKNY

“Exquisitely beautiful. An extraordinary experience for us and the children.” — Cate Blanchett, Academy Award–winning actress
