A Talk On Shen Yun
Chinese traditional culture, with a history of 5000 years, values honor, etiquette, wisdom, sincerity and compassion.
Over the course of history, Chinese culture has had a broad influence on Asian countries and even the world. Nowadays, Chinese traditional culture in its diverse forms such as Chinese martial arts and acupuncture, is reaching more and more Americans. However, to many Americans, Chinese culture is enigmatic and mysterious.
To help American public to better understand Chinese culture, Asian Art Foundation launched a program to introduce Chinese traditional culture by means of presentation. The presentation will explore Chinese civilization based on Shen Yun Performance.
Shen Yun is selected to serve the purpose since the performance covers not only performing arts and visual arts, but also traditional Chinese values and Chinese literature as well. In the presentation, the fundamental elements of traditional Chinese culture and basic knowledge of Chinese performing arts will be introduced.
How the culture is being reflected in the performance will be explained. By sharing the understanding and appreciation of Chinese traditional culture, it is believed that the program will greatly benefit our communities by improved cross culture understanding.
