Feature Member | Reviving 5000 Years of Civilization Society

I’m Vivian Yu with the Reviving 5,000 Years of Civilization Society, a non-profit based in Vancouver. One of our major projects is to partner with the presenter of Shen Yun Performing Arts to promote Shen Yun in western Canada. Shen Yun’s revival of China’s ancient culture fits perfectly with our mission. We’re thrilled that Shen Yun is bringing about a renaissance of China’s ancient culture and values that were all but destroyed during the Cultural Revolution.

What is your favourite thing about what you do?

My favourite thing about what I do is promoting Shen Yun Performing Arts, a world-famous classical Chinese dance company based in New York. Shen Yun showcases 5,000 years of true Chinese culture. There are over 20 performances of ancient and modern stories and fables from the 20 dynasties and 50 ethnic groups from China’s rich history. Legends, myths, and heroes spring to life through classical Chinese dance. Ethnic and folk dances fill the stage with colour and energy. There are over 100 artists, 400 breathtaking costumes, animated interactive backdrops, all accompanied by full live orchestra combining western and Chinese instruments—something unique in the world of classical music.


What is the best kept secret about your products/services?

This is the 13th year that Shen Yun will perform in Vancouver. Last season, it was scheduled to play four shows, but the demand was so high that the presenter added one more show! This year there are 10 shows, from March 22 to 31.


What’s one thing you would like people to know about your business?

Shen Yun’s mission is to bring about a renaissance of China’s traditional culture and classical arts through live orchestral music and classical Chinese dance. Still largely unfamiliar in the West, classical Chinese dance is one of the most comprehensive dance systems in the world. It transcends the barriers of nationality and language. It is the perfect medium for sharing the wisdom and values of five millennia of Chinese civilization.
