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

This epic production immerses you in stories reaching back to the most distant past. You’ll explore realms even beyond this world. Featuring one of the world’s oldest art forms—classical Chinese dance—along with unique sceno-graphical effects and live orchestral music, Shen Yun opens a portal to a glorious civilization of unrivalled beauty, artistry, and inspiration.

Enter a world where philosophers and poets alike sought harmony with the Dao, or “Way,” of the universe. It’s a world where maidens danced with heavenly grace and generals fought with explosive athleticism, where timeless tales of valour and virtue were born, where heaven and earth intersected, and where even magic was possible.

Experience the superb artistic and spiritual heritage of the profound Chinese culture. Experience Shen Yun.
