Truly a delight to the sense's.

When you read that some are deaf, some are blind and some have physical disabilities it just makes it even more impressive if that is possible.

A BIG thankyou.

Its amazing that the human being can be capable of something so gracefull and so bueatifull in one way, and yet want to beat the living cr*p out of each other the next. Thought it was spectacular, thanks for posting this, it made my day.

I have been very interested in the comments.

I would not call it "weird" but it did leave me feeling uncomfortable. It seems to me to epitomise the Chinese practise of supressing individualism and demanding total dedication and commitment to some directing mind.

Art is very strange as so many of us view things so very differently. Take opera for example, much of it has ludicrous plots, ridiculous characters and farcical situations and yet it can be quite beautiful. Ballet can be wonderfully gracefull, incredibly athletic and somewhat titillating - all at the same time. To me some architecture seems to go out of the way to achieve a presence when rather more prosaic solutions would be equally beautiful, considerably cheaper and just as effective. Painting and sculpture is capable of being uplifting and threatening; beautiful and shocking all at the same time.

Maybe it is all a tribute to the ingenuity of man and the complexity of our senses.

Enjoyed the show and the fact that the artists are either visually impaired or deaf makes it even more amazing.
It never fails to pleasantly supprise me when people with "disabilitys" can give so much pleasure to more fortunate people.)

Weird would be the last word that comes to my mind, it is just amazing.

Roger, I find your comment somewhat puzzling. Do you mean that any group performance suppresses individuality? Surely any similar complex performance demands total dedication and commitment to a director?

Amazingly weird?  %%

It's certainly very skillful but beautiful? Not for me.

It definitely gives me a feeling of discomfort too, can't put my finger on why but there you go, we're all different (thank Buddha) and we all see things from our personal perspective, how do you define beauty anyhow?
