Australian couple moved by Shen Yun’s beauty

Classical Chinese dance show Shen Yun is performing in Australian capital Perth.

 

Maria De Mouilpied, author of A Mother’s Letter, and her husband Raymond, a retired police officer, attended the show on April 19.

“Excellent. They must practice for hours and hours and hours and hours and hours. I just pretend one of those was me,” said Maria.

“One thing I find about the dancing is that, if you look into their faces, of the people, the actual discipline is so fantastic. There is not a person out of place there. They’re just absolutely moving with each other. It’s like the wind moving together. It’s fantastic. Really, I’m very, very impressed,” said Raymond.

Maria was deeply touched by the stories depicted on stage.

“I was just here standing, trying to figure out, which one was the one that struck me the most. There were so many spots. But I think the very emotional one was the baby one, and the mother. I feel the pain of the mother. That really stood out for me, along with so many others,” she said.

Raymond praised the show for reviving traditional Chinese culture.

“I think it’s wonderful. I think it brings back the culture of the country. It’s a shame that it was ever lost. As I said, the new regime they don’t believe in it, I believe. It’s a shame really, it was something beautiful in the world. But I think it’s lost now. But having things like this, it brings it back to us and makes us realize how beautiful [it is], and that there are still good people in this world,” he said.

Shen Yun will be performing next in Adelaide, Australia, and Paris, France.
