Internationally acclaimed Chinese dance group Shen Yun returns to London this winter after dazzling audiences at the Dominion Theatre in 2018. Performing in a style now restricted by China’s Communist leadership, it promises to be a spectacular display of the country’s rich history and culture.

Originally conceived by a group of New York-based artists in 2006, the show is a response to Chinese government policy which has seen traditional dance and artistic practices placed under threat. Over the last decade, it has been seen in all corners of the globe and each performance boasts over 80 talented members including musicians, singers, dancers and production crew.

Drawing on China’s strong spiritual heritage, Shen Yun combines classical dance styles with stunning costumes, a beautiful live orchestra and vibrant technology-led sets. Harking back to stories first heard centuries ago, this is a unique opportunity to see beauty and wisdom collide in spectacular form, and experience a brilliantly singular genre of dance.

Prepare to immerse yourself in a wholly unique and extraordinary display of China’s threatened legacy, stretching back 5,000 years. Shen Yun will run at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith for a limited season from 17 January 2020.
