Prepare to be amazed by “500 people dancing in the sky” during the opening ceremony of the Nanjing Youth Olympic Games. This performance is so spectacular, that it will surely take your breath away!
The show takes place in a darkened stadium. The only lights shining are those scattered in the audience, and the fluorescent ones down in the center arena. Suddenly, a tower of acrobats rise up from the stage reaching several stories high. More and more of the performers join the formation – until finally, they lift them up into the air. They spread out on invisible wires, literally looking like a human Christmas tree.
While the group of aerialists are high above the ground, the other dancers move beautifully in-sync surrounding them. The lights and the moves of the performers continuously change during the video, which creates different illusions. It is truly memorizing to watch…you don’t know what they are going to do next! But then they complete it with a finale that is nothing less than mind-blowing. Using stage effects – a lightning bolt, followed by a fireball, are displayed in the center of the acrobats. Wow, this ceremony is absolutely incredible. You really have to see it to believe it!
