Divine Performing Arts to dazzle Madison
The Wisconsin Falun Dafa Association is delighted to bring Divine Performing Arts, the
world’s premier Chinese dance and music company, to Madison, on February 12, 7:30 p.m., at
the Overture Center for the Arts, with tickets starting at $28.
Divine Performing Arts (DPA) brings to life classical Chinese dance and music in a
gloriously colorful and exhilarating show. Its masterful choreography and graceful routines
light up the stage, with gorgeously costumed dancers moving in stunning patterns. Based on

“We’re thrilled to be able to bring entertainment of this caliber to the community,” says
Lucy Guan, of Wisconsin Falun Dafa Association. “The show promises to be as educational as

You could travel all the way to China and never see this kind of quality.”
An unprecedented collaboration of leading Chinese dancers, choreographers, and
musicians, Divine Performing Arts seeks to breathe new life into traditional Chinese culture
and provide an experience of sublime beauty. Based in New York, the company is a nonprofit
entity that is consciously independent of China’s political regime, under which the traditional
arts have long suffered; included among DPA’s members are those who practice Falun Gong.
The company has broken ground by giving artistic treatment in its shows to not
only classical themes and tales, but also important social issues in contemporary
Last year, DPA performed for some 600,000 live audience members as it
toured 66 cities around the world. The company has previously sold out Radio City
Music Hall. Its shows have been called by critics “superb,” “resplendent,” “inspired,”
and “wonderfully positive.”
“The performances by DPA not only tell us a great deal about the values and
ideals of China’s past,” says Guan, “but also about what is happening in China
today. It truly is a world-class performance that is remarkably uplifting.”
