Admire Guan Yin, standing tall in her golden dress, as she overlooks Mount Putuo, her powerful, draped figure bearing protection to all those on sea. At day, she remains still… But when the sun sets, Guan Yin sets herself free, her movements liberated like waves rolling onto her island. Hands in the air, hips shaking side to side, she doesn’t dance to Buddhist chants, or jazz, nor even rock. Yes, Guan Yin is an electro junkie – that type dancing till the sunrise, shaking it to those beats and rhythms. Get it deeper, get it faster, get it harder – that’s the way Guan Yin loves it. [Jack Mur]
