DANCE OF 1000 HANDS…

DANCE OF 1000 HANDS…

There is an awesome, beautiful dance,  called the Thousand-Hand Guanyin, which is making the rounds across the net.  Considering the tight coordination
required,their accomplishment is nothing  short of amazing, even if they were
not all deaf.  Yes, you read  correctly.  All 21 of the dancers are complete
deaf-mutes. Relying only on  signals from trainers at the four corners of the
stage, these extraordinary  dancers deliver a visual spectacle that is at once
intricate and stirring.
Its first major international debut was in Athens at the closing  ceremonies for
the 2004 Paralympics. But it had long been in the repertoire of  the Chinese
Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe and had traveled to more  than 40
countries. Its lead dancer is 29 year old Tai Lihua, who has a  BA from the Hubei Fine Arts Institute.  The video was recorded in Beijing  during the Spring Festival this year.
