The wa dance troupe putting performers with prosthetic limbs into costumes have come under fire from the LGBT community and, as if the whole thing wasn’t troubling enough, some performers have been accused of racism.
A video of the performance shows a female performer with a prosthetic limb dancing to “Wu Lin’s Dance Song.” The video then cuts to a man walking in the opposite direction and pointing a shotgun at the audience. “Don’t let them do the dance, don’t let them dance, don’t do the dance,” says one spectator in the video.
The video ends with a woman standing in front of the stage to announce to the crowd, “We’re the same person!”
Shanghai Pride’s official Facebook page posted the following post after seeing the video on Tuesday afternoon:
The video of the performers performing their dancing in the nude has a lot of problems. Firstly, this is not something that was planned and had ever happened before. Secondly, we were t슬롯 사이트old the video was from the company’s own productions with the intention of promoting the festival. Thirdly, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a troupe performing naked. The issue is that this is something that was only allowed to happen before the festival and before it was sold as a commercial for the festival. At this moment, we do not know which of our troupe’s performers were to have been naked during a public performance. And we can only imagine what happened afterwards because we did not have a full picture of the scene.
Shanghai Pride director Michael Liu said he had been unaware of the controversy until yesterday evening, when he saw the video online.
He told Beijing News:
This happened as soon as we thought of what this kind of event meant for our communi카지노ty. We really cannot understand the criticism that comes from the public, from outside and from our members. We know that people are outraged by this; people are upset; people believe it has some very serious problems. We did not approve this act as a way of promoting the event. We have tried to explain to the media that this is an event which has nothing to do with the public. It호 게임 is an official event and we are happy to go ahead with it. We have had a huge amount of support from the community and the wider society in the wake of this incident.
Liu added that Shanghai Pride is not concerned at all about the controversy over “Wu Lin’s Dance Song.” He said he thought the audience would be well aware of the performance because it featured naked wome
