NOW is the time, to be alive.

This is a performance everyone must see. Known as The Thousand-Hand Bodhisattva Masterpiece, this performance is made up of all deaf dancers. The dancers follow the light fluctuations, the vibrations from the sound, as well as the breathing and movements of the other dancers around them. As you can see, they are incredibly synced not only with each other, but also with the sound. Would they be able to be this synced if the dancers were not deaf? Of course, this performance undoubtedly shows that you do not have to be able to hear in order to feel, appreciate, and be moved by music.

ALSO! Do me a favor, and turn off the sound to this actual video and watch this video with the 1940 submarine remix (below) playing instead... you won't regret it.

Ready to back that up on a Wednesday? I know I am.

1940 Remix, WIll's on a role these days

The 1940 original by The Submarines is just as good as the remix
