The Shen Yun Performing Arts is an American company that tours the world, showcasing the beauty and skill of traditional Chinese performance art. The company has been making waves in the world of classical Chinese dance since its inception in 2006.
Started in 2007 by ninety performers affiliated with the Falun Gong new religious movement, the troupe embarked on its inaugural tour that year. It expanded so rapidly that by 2009, it had its very own orchestra. The performing arts reach more people because of the simultaneous traveling of seven different organizations. More than a million individuals have seen the shows by 2010.
On average, Shen Yun's touring group consists of around 40 dancers. Chinese myths and legends, such as "Mulan," "Journey to the West," and "Outlaws of the Marsh," provide inspiration for these dances. The companies also present the testimonies of Falun Gong's followers. The performances use the three pillars of traditional Chinese dance. Included in this category are "bearing" (emotion, cultural, and ethnic flavor), "form" (expressive motions and postures), and "technical proficiency" (physical techniques of jumping, flipping, and leaping).
The dance is usually accompanied by the pipa, suona, dizi, guzheng, and a variety of other Chinese percussion instruments. Simultaneously, the orchestra provides inspiration for the melodies. Solo performances also feature musicians playing traditional Chinese instruments. The design and clothing worn are determined by the storyline of the dance. Several costumes are representations of actual ethnic garb. On the other hand, some are reminiscent of traditional Chinese court dancers, soldiers, or fictional heroes.
