A Bird's Nest in the Bird's Nest

Amazing what you can do when you put dozens of tiny lights all over a thousand performers's full-body white suits, then turn them on and off strategically. You can make electric formations all over the stage, symbolizing the move from ancient painting to modern technology, then you can have these performers stand on each others's shoulders and erect a miniature of the very stadium they are in.

Yes, a Bird's Nest (National Stadium nickname) created by strong, flexible people. Quite ingenious. A cute five-year-old girl teamed up with the famous Lang Lang in the middle of it all to play the piano. A kite -- which originated in China -- was unleashed from the nest.
