The Yolo County Library’s Davis and West Sacramento branches will present “A Talk on Shen Yun” this week and next. Local residents are invited to learn how the Shen Yun Performing Arts company performs classical Chinese dance, ethnic and folk dance, and story-based dance that has inspired countless Chinese artists.
Based in New York, Shen Yun Performing Arts was established in 2006 with the mission of reviving 5,000 years of divinely inspired Chinese culture. Preceding their Jan. 2 and 3 performances in Sacramento, the Stephens Branch Library, at 315 E. 14th St. in Davis, will host a talk on Shen Yun from 11 a.m. to noon Saturday, presented by volunteers with the San Francisco Falun Buddha Study Association.
The Arthur F. Turner Community Library, 1212 Merkley Ave. in West Sacramento, will host the presentation from 10 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 8.
