The Grit Of Soul

Season 8, Episode 8 of 8

Shen "Sunny" Jun's first dance piece - The Grit of Soul - is an attempt to translate the emotions and conflicts he felt as he adjusted from his old life in China to his new life in the United States. Extended: Shen "Sunny" Jun found his way to Austin, Texas, after spending his life training for dance in China. He created Shen Jun Movement Effect and debuted his first piece, The Grit of Soul, which is an attempt to translate the emotions and conflicts he felt as he adjusted from his old life in China to his new life in the United States. Combining the traditional movements of his homeland with modern and American motifs, the old with the new, and the familiar with the strange, Jun is forming his own, wholly unique artistic and cultural path.
