DANCE OF 1000 HANDS...
Read the paragraph below FIRST before you watch the video


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 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.
