WHERE ARE THE CHAIRS? AMAZING..But where are the chairs?Absolutely wonderful!! Beautiful performance. A breath of fresh air, enjoy!This is China 's showcase to the world!Absolutely beautiful but …WHERE ARE THE CHAIRS?Are those lady musicians sitting on invisible chairs?Apparently NOT - it's a form of YOGA . This is actually being done in a yoga pose known as chair posture". Imagine holding this position for that long! The strength in their legs is unbelievable!Shanghai Expo Closing Ceremony... http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=6HfDeTVpinU&vq=medi... (I've been a yogi practitioner for years, and am totally awed by this)

I'm not buying it. Their center of gravity is way off. Even a bronze statue would fall on it's a$$ unless the foot were anchored to the floor.Its a trick.http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=6HfDeTVpinU&vq=medi...
Its a trick.I agree. There's gotta be 99.9% of their weight on one side of their foot.
"Its a trick. I'm not buying it. Their center of gravity is way off."Agreed. I watched them closely when they briefly stood and then sat back down, and noticed that their butts flattened, as if sitting onto a non-reflective glass surface. (Trust me on this I've been watching butts for well over a half century)And then there is that off-center of gravity issue where each would have to be a magician of sort to it carry off... like this guy:http://dotcomjoe.com/maharajoe~aj
There is a metal bar in the shoe that slips into a slot in the floor.The bar runs up to at least the knee but it looks like it goes to the butt and has a limited range joint so that you can sit on it. You can see them finding the floor slots at about 1:06.Michael Jackson also used this device in one of his later videos but the dancers were standing and leaning.Wizand
My DH (Civil Engineer) totally agrees its a stunt of some time - has watched it over and over again to try and figure it out - he says maybe even a rope???? or any/all of your comments agreed to.... <LOL>
You can do all sorts of wonders with Chroma-Key...like the TV weather folks use on TV.....they aren't facing a map....they are looking at a computer screen...the 'map' is nothing but a green board...or whatever 'color' the chroma-key system is set up for....all the players had flattened butts..so they were sitting on something....which could have been chroma-key......and the background appears to be there.....same as the 'flying' performers...obviously suspension cables....except you don't see them....black background...t.
