This 2007 Oscars they made a great appearance in the following video




What is amazing is how they use their bodies to reflect an idea, perform an unconventional dance. Here is what is written about them in Wikipedia

" is the name adopted by an internationally-renowned dance company, whose origins are traced to a 1971 Dartmouth College dance class taught by Alison Chase; the founding members were Robby Barnett, Lee Harris, Moses Pendleton, and Jonathan Wolken. The group first began performing in October of 1971, and has been touring worldwide since that date, primarily with artistic directors Barnett, Chase, Wolken, and Michael Tracy, though Chase left in 2006, after having collaborated with Pendleton in 1980 to form the offshoot group Momix. Their performances have long been characterized by a strong element of physical interaction between the bodies of the performers, and exaggerations or contortions of the human form (or other anthropomorphic forms), often verging on gymnastics.

This is an AD they did for Hyndai Santa Fe

I think its cool that they can do things like that! I would probably break a few bones in my body doing what they do!

All they had to do is Happy Feet to catch my heart :D but I think a more artistic "dance wise" performance would be also cool!

Same here! flexibility is a blessing! they truly amaze me! and also how they visualize the positions they need to be in, in order to finish up one shape!
