 Amputated models show the crescent beauty in adversity

To co-ordinate International Disabled Day, the annual soiree of the “Crescent Beauty- Disabled Talent Show” held grandly has entered the evening of the 12th.

This year, Fu-Li Rehabilitation Association for Teenaged Amputees,ROC and Taipei
Fubon Bank Foundation organize this soiree together, which will be taken place grandly on November 30 (Sunday) at the Auditorium in National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, Taipei.

    This time, the bright “Fashion show – Crescent heart and glory” in the soiree, what the amputated models performed is not the graceful gesture, but the impotent arm after amputation that shows impact and wisdom of the life, what they exposed are not beautiful legs, but the bravery to stand up with one leg; they do not cover their defects, but show the inner free, confident and strong beauty; not to cover the wounds is not a kind of sadness, but is more admirable courage. The beauty of the amputated models is not only under the light on the stage, but also is consistent with every second and every minute of the life.

    Graduated from Chinese department of the university, the sweet girl, Deng Mei-Fang, whose right arm was high amputated will play the leading role in “New Snow White” in the soiree, the other outstanding performers on the same stage are: the girl whose left hand was amputated, Wang Su-Chiao, who obtained “Love for life Award” and went to USA for show this year; the girl whose extremities were amputated, Quo Wei-Chi, who obtained “Education Award of The President” this year; the enthusiastic girl , Ho Huei-Ling ,whose right hand had only one finger since she was born, she possesses Chef License and is the chief secretary of Fu-Li Rehabilitation Association for Teenaged Amputees,ROC, as well as the famous deaf and dumb person, Chen Leian-Chiao , who has obtained “Cultural and educational Show Host of the Golden Bell Award” , was the chief of “Taibei Deaf Theatrical Troupe” and the director of Deaf Association, ROC,. So, the programs will be excited and fantastic!"

       In the mean time, these amputated models become “Crescent dancers”,just like the lyrics of the premiere in “Beauty of Crescent Soiree” : 「Without voice, one still can sign. Without wings, one still can fly. Without limbs, one still can dance.Though body is maimed, Life still can be perfect. The full moon and the crescent are all moon. The crescent is as beautiful as the full moon. 」 Physical handicap cannot be changed, but it is selectable, to make imperfect life abundant and full. Only one hand or one leg may be a defect in the eyes of the world. But, from the view point of those brave amputee dancers, they are still lucky to have one hand or one leg to dance, and thus to see the sunrise. We have no idea how many handicapped audience,dispirited and self-denied youths be influenced by the show and change their lives,and manifest the brightness of their life, calmly, positively and perfectly. Where there is brightness, where is beauty,“ The crescent shines over the whole world.” Isn’t it very beautiful? - Isn’t just the most real feature of “Crescent Beauty”? 

      The amputated girls demonstrate themselves as models and in form of dancing and drama, this is the most realistic show on the stage; the appreciating effect is deeply shocked and touched. Currently, the economy of the society is under serious recession that makes many people live in straitened circumstances; further, the long political fighting causes the view of life value turbulent and confused. Therefore, a lot of people get into body and mind syndrome, they are dispirited and self-denied, comparing with disabled friends who are maimed, but with strong bravery and persistent will, expose their amputation freely and truly face themselves in the struggling life. They show their talents with extraordinary self-confidence, transmitting glory and passion of life; that can touch and shock inner spirit of every audience. To youth and social people who are struggling around, the disabled friends can inspire their tenacious life force deeply in their heart. Hence, theperformance of amputated models and crescent dancers are truly and extremely an expression with meaning of life education. One soiree has changed the future of many people!
