Orchestra conductors.

My mind knows there are a language of hand jestures that mean something to the musicians watching the conductor, but I was simply posting this to admit, I couldn't understand it to save my life. 

All I have is my layperson's lame attempt to make sense of it. 

Conductors look to me, like some desperate kidnap victim who escaped and is trying to flag down a passing motorist to save them.

(bold mine)

It's in the Wikipedia article that you linked. Fucking read it.
