Cover Story

The magical Shen Yun experience


hen Yun presents five thousands years of Chinese civilization in a live performance on stage. Through classical Chinese dance, breathtaking music, and gorgeous costumes, the show introduces an ancient world once lost. In March, the performance will be returning to Cincinnati. Shen Yun Performing Arts is a nonprofit company based in New York. It was formed in 2006 by artists from around the world who came together with a mission—to show the world what Chinese culture once was. In China, this traditional culture has been devastated over 70 years of communist rule. In fact, Shen Yun is not even allowed to perform in China today. But worldwide the company gave 500 performances in 150 cities last season alone. Across the United States and in Europe, its performances were regularly sold-out. What makes Shen Yun so popular and inspiring? The name Shen Yun means, “The beauty of divine beings dancing.” Some audience members describe it like this: You can go to China and see it with your eyes, but Shen Yun lets you experience the real China with your soul. At the heart of a Shen Yun performance is classical Chinese dance—and this company performs it like no other. This is an ancient art form

with a history of thousands of years. Its explosive tumbling techniques combined with gentle elegance make it exhilarating and beautiful to watch. The performance includes story-based dances, with tales of heroic warriors, colorful figures like the Monkey King, and legends that take place high up in the heavens. Other dances celebrate China’s ethnic groups and dynasties. The live orchestra combines Western and Eastern instruments, creating a refreshing sound different from any other orchestra. Each performance includes hundreds of authentic, handmade costumes. The full theatrical effect is achieved with a dynamic, animated backdrop. It is like looking into a living painting, as the images interact with the dancers and orchestra in pure perfection. Shen Yun’s artists, like the ancients who came before them, believe that art is meant to uplift and inspire. They incorporate meditation and study of traditional culture into their rigorous daily training. In their interviews, they talk about cultivating goodness and virtue. This spiritual grounding comes through in their performance, filling the theater with a sense of anticipation and joy. Shen Yun will be in Cincinnati at Aronoff Center for the Arts, March 18-20, 2020. Tickets: 513-6212787; 7 KEYCINCINNATI.COM

Archie Rand: Sixty Paintings from the Bible


he Skirball Museum on the historic Cincinnati campus of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion invites you to visit its current exhibition, Archie Rand: Sixty Paintings from the Bible. Internationally celebrated artist and Jewish scholar Archie Rand brings a unique blend of expressionistic comic book style and loosely painting imagery rendered in loud, colorful tones to familiar stories from the Hebrew Bible. These visually stunning and thoughtful works are at the same time irreverent and serious, adding fresh perspectives to narratives that have shaped Western civilization. In conceiving this series, Rand turned to two disparate sources: the language of comic books replete with speech bubbles and prints by the somewhat forgotten seventeenth-century Swissborn engraver Matthäus Merian. In the case of a well-known story from Genesis, The Sacrifice of

Isaac, Rand’s interpretation derives humor from distress. Prepared to sacrifice Isaac at the request of God, Abraham holds a knife. An angel bathed in gold hovers in a cloud above the distraught father. Leaning forward, Abraham shouts out “I’m here!” in a desperate effort to catch the angel’s attention, with the dialogue emphasized by large capital letters, an exclamation and double underlining. Rand described the canvases in the series as “old friends of mine and they tip the balance in my art.” He went on to remark that “there’s nothing irreligious about these pictures. I mean, it’s exactly what’s going on, but they’re painted in such a way that they become available.” The exhibition continues through June 28, 2020.

Your Health

Heart Health 101


now your risk factors: High blood pressure, smoking, high cholesterol, obesity, and lack of regular activity are all things that we can control. Know your numbers! One of the best things you can do to protect your heart is to know your blood pressure, cholesterol, BMI, and blood sugar. Take action now! Healthy changes in your life can make a world of difference for your heart. If you are experiencing symptoms of heart attack, don’t hesitate to get help! The stakes are too high. Almost two-thirds (64%) of women who die suddenly of coronary heart disease have no previous symptoms. Even if you have no symptoms, you may still be at risk for heart disease. Women are more likely to describe chest pain as being sharp and burning in nature and more frequently have pain in the neck, jaw, throat, abdomen, or back. Heart disease is a killer that strikes more women than men and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. While one in 31 American women dies from breast cancer each year, heart disease claims the lives of one in three. That’s roughly one death each minute. The American Heart Association recommends you start getting your cholesterol checked at age 20, or earlier if your family has a history of heart disease. And while you’re at it, be sure to keep an eye on your blood pressure at your next check-up.

For younger women, the combination of birth control pills and smoking boosts heart disease risks by 20 percent. Smoking, diabetes and abnormal blood lipids erase a woman’s estrogen protection. Women wait longer than men to go to an emergency room when having a heart attack and physicians are slower to recognize the presence of heart attacks in women because “characteristic” patterns of chest pain and EKG changes are less frequently present.

After life care...with a personal and sensitive touch


illiam L. Kahn, a trusted member of The Weil Funeral Home for 30+ years, has taken over the legacy that has been run by the Weil Family for over 100 years. After working 24/7 for more than 30 years, owner Robert A. Weil decided that it was time to sell. It is now called the Weil-Kahn Funeral Home Bob Weil stated…“Bill’s father (Sylvan) worked with my father and then with me. When he retired Bill came to work here and has worked with me for 30+ years. And I can’t think of anybody more qualified and trustworthy to take over the business than Bill. He’s like a family member.” Kahn was eager to take over the funeral home, as he and Weil have talked about the transition for years. “I’ve been in the business for many years and was grateful for the opportunity to purchase this historic institution!” Kahn said. “I love my job. I enjoy helping the Greater Cincinnati community, and this is just the normal progression. I’m the second generation of my family and embrace the opportunity to continue the legacy. With the sale, the new name is now Weil

Kahn Funeral Home, located at 8350 Cornell Rd. in Symmes Township, just north of I-275 at Montgomery Road across from Gate of Heaven Cemetery. Ben Lefton, a licensed funeral director, joined Weil in 2016. Becci Jahn , a recent graduate of the University of Cincinnati is an Apprentice Funeral Director and will be licensed within 2 years. Weil Kahn Funeral Home has seen many changes. The three biggest have been computerization, personalization and prearranging and pre-paying of funeral expenses. Also, Weil Kahn offers “Eco-Friendly Green Funerals for those who are interested in these services when taking care of loved ones….this means: no embalming, burial in a shroud, all wood caskets with no metal. “It’s my privilege and honor to take care of the Greater Cincinnati community in their time of need, and hope to continue for many years to come.” William L.
