Dance of scissors

Writing about web page http://www.andes.missouri.edu/andes/especiales/jzadanzaks/jza_danzaks1.html

The related website shows how the dance of scissors might have been originated as a way to keep Quechua Culture alive in the minds of Peruvians during the time Peru was a Spanish colony.

When I was a child I remember I saw video in television showing the life a scissors dancer. A scissors dancer has to carry on dancing until the end of his days.

When he is about to die he passes his scissors to the one who will continue dancing instead of him. That video I am referering is “The Agony of Rasu Niti”, it only lasts 30 minutes. It will be a hard to get.
