Arts & Culture

Shen Yun’s Live Performance with Orchestra at the Robinson

Robinson Center

Shen Yun invites you to travel back to ancient China and experience a lost culture through classical Chinese dance.

  • Blast from the past: With stunning costumes, live orchestra, and historic scenes, Shen Yun draws on courage and inspiration from their practice of Falun Dafa—a historical Chinese spiritual discipline.

  • The history: The traditional Chinese culture Shen Yun presents cannot be seen anywhere else in the world including China. The ruling government has viewed this as a threat to its ideology; however, in 2006, a group of Chinese artists came together with a vision: to revive the best of China’s cultural heritage and share it with the world.
