Bodies & Poetry In Motion

When we refer to art, we tend to think of objects or things... but the human body and its movements can also be glorious forms of art. Such as the incredible performances of The Trinity Irish Dancers:

And the stunning Golden Dragon Acrobats:

I’ve seen both groups live and on video. I’m not easily impressed, but it is very easy to be impressed by Trinity and Golden Dragon, who demonstrate the beautiful & astounding physical capacity of the human body: strength, endurance, agility, flexibility, dexterity, muscle control & grace.
Unfortunate that such artistry is so transient.
