shen yunShen Yun

State Theatre

March 28–31

15 Livingston Ave, New Brunswick

Shen Yun takes you on an extraordinary journey through China’s 5,000 years of divinely inspired culture.

Exquisite beauty from the heavens, profound wisdom from dynasties past, timeless legends and ethnic traditions all spring to life through classical Chinese dance, enchanting live orchestral music, authentic costumes, and patented interactive backdrops. Revisit a time when scholars and artists sought harmony with the Tao, or the “way” of the universe, and when divine beings walked upon the earth to inspire humanity.

Join us for a night filled with beauty and wisdom, courage and hope... it is the experience of a lifetime! See Shen Yun — live on stage.
