The Scenery of Jiangnan
Jiangnan is located on the Yangtze River Delta and has a warm and rainy climate. The gardens of Jiangnan are exquisite and enchanting, giving the feeling of meditative seclusion. Indeed, it is a place historically renowned as a cultural and literary center. And yet the winding river with small houses along the banks, seeming to emerge from an ink-wash painting, creates a charming picture of simple, bucolic river life. The calm, beautiful riverscape backdrop and the femininity of Shen Yun’s Jiangnan dances blend together in a scene of gentle elegance.
