Speaking to us on Thursday 9th August will be Alice Wong about traditional Chinese cultures and the Shen Yun Performing Arts. Alice will highlight how since ancient times, China has been known as the “Celestial Empire.” This not only refers to China’s strength and position as East Asia’s Middle Kingdom; it also captures a more profound meaning, describing a land where the divine and mortal once coexisted. It refers to the belief that the divine, through various dynasties, transmitted a rich and abundant culture to the Chinese people. Chinese culture is thus known as “divinely inspired,” and is the only culture in the world to have a continuous recorded history of 5,000 years. New York based Shen Yun Performing Arts is a classical Chinese dance, and musical performance company whose mission is to revive traditional Chinese culture. The five thousand years of civilization have never been presented to the world in the form of the performing arts but Shen Yun accomplished it.
