Livestream shines spotlight on domestic workers and the organization helping them battle life's emotional burdens through artistic means, Xu Fan reports.

Bathed in the soft, warm stage lights, two dancers dressed in all-white outfits gaze at each other with deep emotion in their eyes. Slowly, they move toward one another and embrace tightly, as if they were long-lost family members reuniting after many years apart.

The scene is both touching and infectious, but what makes it even more remarkable is that the two performers are not professionals, but rather amateurs who work as domestic workers in Beijing.

At a livestreamed event organized by Tencent News and Tencent Public Welfare on May 20, the two dancers joined a group of guests, mostly ordinary people who use art to find relief from the burdens of life and reignite their sense of hope, sharing how they shake off loneliness and stress in the metropolis while working as nannies.
