Thousand Hands Guan Yin Dance

Thousand Hand Guan Yin is a dance created by Chinese choreographer Zhang Jigang. This dance is performed by 63 deaf dancers of the China Disabled People's Performing Art Troupe. Because they cannot hear the music, six conductors in white cloths help them synchronizing with the music. This dance describes the legend that Bodhisattva Guan Yin has one thousand hands. Bodhisattva is a Proto-Buddha. She can not become a Buddha because she is still attached to this world. Her vow: "If there is still a single drop of tear in this world, I will not become a Buddha."
