"It's Like a Prayer" - Philanthropist on Shen Yun in Philade

8 years ago54 views

Mr. Murray is a former football team president and founder of a famous international charity. He and his wife went to see Shen Yun Performing Arts in Philadelphia last Saturday evening.

[Mr. Murray, Philanthropist]:
“I thought that there was so much that you couldn’t just say. ‘Oh, I went and saw the Chinese cultural dance. It was a prayer, because there was a message there and just like the history of China it takes reflection. It was like the great wall itself. It was spectacular. There are no words to describe it.”

Mr. Murray says the beauty of Chinese classical dance also left a strong impression on him.

[Mr. Murray, Philanthropist]:
“But the most beautiful part was the dancers themselves. Not just their ability to dance, but to communicate and talk to you through dance. So I thought the sets were spectacular, the beauty of the women and the guys were all beautiful, but I really appreciated it as a prayer.”

His wife says the dancers movements impressed her.

[Mrs. Murray, Audience Member]:
“Well I really appreciated what went in to the strength that they had and yet made it look so beautiful and flowing. It’s like hiding that strength, but if you really watch you could just see the control and it was beautiful. And I loved the footwork, because I am not used to that kind of footwork. And I just really enjoyed... I want to go home and try it.”
