Shen Yun is a cult

There comes a time of year when Shen Yun cookie-cutter advertisements sprout up around the city in the same pose with dace ribbons attached to their arms mid-split leap, the sign reading “China before Communism.”

However, underneath the bright colors, pretty ribbons and dancers lies something more sinister—propaganda which depicts cult messaging and exaggerated accounts of prosecution.

“Some pieces also touch upon the topic of today’s China, shedding light on the oppression many experience for their spiritual beliefs, such as Falun Dafa,” stated the Shen Yun website description.

Through the bright dresses and elegant moves, dancers peddle very visual—and somewhat exaggerated—persecutions of this group and grandiose expressions of good vs evil, where Falun Dafa is portrayed as the light which prevailed and China is portrayed as evil and wicked.

Falun Gong, aka Falun Dafa, was a spiritually-focused organization. It was started in the early ‘90s and was created by Master Li Hongzhi, the protector of the universe. Functionally, this group performs like a cult which makes grandiose promises, such as prayer to cure all illnesses and believing that aliens have corrupted people with inventions like the computer.

Time Magazine directly explored the beliefs held by this group and noted Li Hongzhi’s beliefs, some of which include that people can learn to levitate, qigong can be used to cure illness, aliens have invaded the human mind and culture and modern science is from the aliens to keep them controlled.
