A dancer filming an exercise routine in front of Myanmar’s parliament has gained global fame after she unwittingly captured the first moments of a dramatic coup in the background of her video on the morning of 1 February 2021.

In the extraordinary footage in the capital, Naypyidaw, a woman reported to be Khing Hnin Wai appears to continue her workout as black SUVs drive up to a security checkpoint on the road leading to the Assembly of the Union complex behind her. As the upbeat song she is dancing to builds in tempo, the convoy swells almost in time to the music.

The dancer does not appear to know what is happening behind her. She continues – at one stage making small punching motions – as the cars behind her come briefly to a standstill. Then, as she moves spryly side to side, small figures in silhouette can be seen rushing to open the barricade and let the cars through.
