Having captivated millions worldwide, New York based Shen Yun Performing Arts is delighted to return to London with a brand new show for 2013 at the Barbican Centre.



Experience 5,000 years of divinely inspired culture
For 5,000 years in China, culture was heralded as a divine gift. Its glory was long the inspiration of countless artists and poets, until this heritage was nearly lost…

Shen Yun Performing Arts seeks to revive this once-majestic tradition and takes you on an epic journey into the heart of that divinely inspired culture. Enter a world of heavenly wonder, imperial drama, and heroic legends, a world where beauty and purity have never been lost...

'An extraordinary experience...
exquisitely beautiful!'
Cate Blanchett, Academy Award-winning actress

'So inspiring! I may have found some ideas for the next Avatar movie.'
Robert Stromberg, Academy Award-winning production designer for Avatar




Masterful, moving, exquisite
Expect a large-scale production with 90 dancers, musicians and live orchestra; a unique combination of Chinese and Western instruments; stunning handmade costumes; breathtaking animated backdrops; and graceful dance routines with masterful live music.

Colourful folk and ethnic pieces transport you to the northern steppes of Mongolia and the lush, green forests of Yunnan. Dramatic story-based dances bring to life ancient legends as well as the modern-day stories of courage. Values like compassion and loyalty, kindness and bravery are deeply rooted in each performance.

Shen Yun is truly a study of beauty, grace, wisdom and virtue. It is traditional Chinese culture as it’s meant to be; magical, dazzling and uplifting.

Shen Yun is a non-profit organisation reviving authentic Chinese culture. Today, you can no longer see a show like Shen Yun in China.

Shen Yun is presented by Falun Dafa Association UK.
