A deaf and partially sighted musical dance act from China is putting on a major show at the UN to convey a positive message about disability.

The name of the troupe is My Dream China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe.

They've already given more than 100 performances so far – but this is their first time at the UN Palais in Geneva.

Wang Jing, Vice President of My Dream, took time out from rehearsals to explain how she got involved.

You’ll hear her speaking in Chinese; our thanks to Gao Jie for the English translation.
