SOMETIMES, I FORGET how different the art of dance is around the world. It is such a beautiful form of expression, and the China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe (CDPPAT) goes beyond just performance — all of the dancers featured here are hearing impaired, and CDPPAT supports a wide range of disabilities in their other endeavors. This dance, entitled Thousand Hand Bodhisattva (Guan Yin, 千手观音), is based on the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy. I think it’s amazing how skilled and in-sync the dancers are, truly making it look as though it is only one person expressing all of the movements.
