THE CHINESE EMBASSY SHOULD NOT PRESSURE A BRITISH VENUE ABOUT AN ARTS PERFORMANCE sign now

The Chinese Embassy is attempting to block Shen Yun from performing at the London Coliseum in April.

“Shen Yun is reviving the true culture and values that the communist party all but destroyed in campaigns like the Cultural Revolution. The Chinese Communist Party truly cannot bear for anything that does not fit their own ideology.” said Rosemary Byfield of the UK promoters of Shen Yun.

The New York-based company, Shen Yun Performing Arts, presents a large-scale production featuring 90 dancers, singers and musicians. The not-for-profit organisation seeks to revive traditional Chinese culture, weaving together stories of heavenly realms with ancient heroic legends and modern tales of courage. In America this year, shows sold out in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego and in New York's Lincoln Centre.

No British venue should be subject to this kind of political pressure in an artistic matter. We call on the Culture Minister to tell the Chinese Ambassador to stop interfering.
