About Shen Yun

Take an enlightening journey through 5,000 years of culture!

Shen Yun’s unique artistic vision expands theatrical experience into a multi-dimensional, inspiring journey through one of humanity’s greatest treasures - the five millennia of traditional Chinese culture.

This epic production immerses you in stories reaching back to the most distant past. You’ll explore realms even beyond our visible world. Featuring one of the world’s oldest art forms - classical Chinese dance - along with incredible special effects and all-original orchestral works, Shen Yun opens a portal to a civilization of enchanting beauty and enlightening wisdom.

Shen Yun will take your breath away.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Shen Yun are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
