In a closing ceremony handoff between the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games (held in 2021) and those to be held in Paris in 2024, 128 professional and amateur performers work as one in an original routine created by choreographer Sadeck Waff.
The arm gesture dance moves are set to a piece titled Prologue by music video director and songwriter Woodkid, performed by the Orchestre National de France. The short was directed by Thibaut Charlut.
Oxandre Pecku opens the video. Pecku is the first person in France to receive Open Bionics‘ prosthetic Hero Arm, a 3D-printed multi-grip bionic arm.
