On January 3, 2020, Shen Yun World Art Troupe performed its second performance at the Wilfrid-Pelletier Theater in Place des Arts, Canada. Shen Yun presenters wished the audience a prosperous New Year. Audiences enjoyed the superb show as the dancers brought the glory of Chinese civilization for 5,000 years to life.
Daniel Paradis, a sales director, said after watching Shen Yun’s performance, “The art of Shen Yun is superb. It is unique and perfect in terms of screenplay, music, costumes, color, dynamic backdrops, and the combination of music and dance. Especially striking are the scene changes and the ‘sky curtain’ making people feel that everything is changing constantly; the scene transports one to 2000 years ago for a while and the goes back 1000 years ago; then back to the present. The final moment – when a flood approaches the city, and the Creator appears, this is my favorite scene,” he said.
Paradis said that all aspects of Shen Yun’s performance are ‘seamless and amazing.’
As dazzling as diamonds
Nicholas Powell, a senior investor, and director of a well-known Canadian media company expressed empathy for the artists when interviewed after the show. He said: “There will always be hardships and you will eventually win respect. The beauty of Shen Yun is as dazzling as a diamond. I want to pay tribute to each of you and thank you for your efforts.”
Powell said that the current world is careless but Shen Yun gifts people with peace. He said, “This world needs Shen Yun.”

This is a very touching reflection. “
