Thousand-Hand Guan Yin

I mentioned the transexual chinese goddess Guan Yin, (ok she's not a transexual but indeterminate sex), in one of my recent posts. If you wallabies have been listening at all.

I recently received a chain email (oh how Lavida despises thee) that includes this beautiful find.

A rare email that I actually find interesting.
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 both intricate and stirring.
 
Who knew deaf-mutes could be so coordinated.

Why can't deaf-Mutes just be deaf only? I thought Helen Keller pioneered the finger in mouth technique. For you clueless wallabies out there who have no idea what I am talking about.

Helen Keller was born a blind and deaf person .......
Ah Fuck it, just go to the wiki - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helen_Keller


Anyway, Lavida Loca shall ascend now~ The Goddess with a thousand cocktails in each hand blesses you :)
