Recebido por e-mail, um vídeo fabuloso de "dança das 1000 mãos"...
Este espetáculo foi executado na cerimónia de encerramento dos jogos Paraolímpicos de Atenas, em 2004.
A perfeição, a sintonia, a leveza dos movimentos que acompanham a música mostram-nos que, com empenho, trabalho, esforço, determinação, autoestima, tudo é possível:
Todos os bailarinos são surdos mudos e apenas seguem as orientações dos formadores que estão nos quatro cantos da sala

Absolutely Beautiful.... Enjoy!!
VERY BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING
DANCE OF 1000 HANDS... Read the paragraph below FIRST before you watch the video (& turn-on speakers)
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 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 40countries. 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.
