DANCE | Shen Yun 

During China's "Cultural Revolution" (1966-76), a rich tradition that developed in isolation for millennia was nearly discarded, and its specific artifacts faded from view. Musical and performing arts group Shen Yun is in the business of re-creating and showcasing the "divine culture" of the ancient Chinese people that was all but lost.  Shen Yun was formed in 2006 by classical Chinese artists based in New York, and features award-winning musicians and dancers, a unique orchestra blending East and West, and visually arresting costumes and staging. Shen Yun develops new music and choreography every season, and has performed at the Lincoln Center in New York City, The London Coliseum, and Kodak Theater in Los Angeles.

Shen Yun will perform on Saturday, February 21, and Sunday, February 22, at the Auditorium Theater, 885 East Main Street. 7:30 p.m. on Saturday; 2 p.m. on Sunday. $53-$123. rbtl.org; shenyun.com.
