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!

Get Out'ta Here! 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.

I agree. There's gotta be 99.9% of their weight on one side of their foot.

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:

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.

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...
