Thousand-Hand Guanyin

Thank you Vicki!
This is NICE!

Make sure you read everything before watching the video.

This is breathtaking. Go to the link at bottom and
be ready to enjoy an absolutely beautiful piece.

There is an awesome 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 last year 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.
