Antoine Hunter and Cara Page in Sins Invalid 2009- Express the Risk Of a Deaf MAN

In this video we see a performance by Antoine Hunter dancing to a song selected by a roll of die.  Hunter's dancing is exceptionally articulate.  From undulations of his strong core to movements of his fingers, he exhibits choreographic creativity and musical sensibility that are remarkable.  Then you realize that Hunter is hearing impaired and his timing and connection to the experience seem much more profound.  Hunter explains in the video's description that he wanted to send a message about the risk of dancing to music one can't know and the beauty and joy to be had in the dance if the challenge is embraced.  Congratulations to him, then, for a stunning performance that spoke volumes and dares viewers to think of dancing and dancers in new ways.

Bless their hearts. (NBC)
