Event Length (Approximate):


International sand art superstar Kseniya Simonova creates a stunning animation of stories lost to war-- of Sephardi women’s voices, of ruined Ottoman villages, of bustling Mediterranean ports -- by manipulating sand on a backlit pane of glass. She creates, morphs and obliterates sand imagery in real-time, crafting a flowing narrative that is projected on a giant screen overhead. The evocative music and radio-drama-style storytelling of the Guy Mendilow Ensemble ("an international tour de force” — Bethlehem Morning Call) adds a sweeping, cinematographic score, drawing on the bittersweet rawness of Tango, gorgeous vocal harmonies and the rhythmic fire of classical Arabic percussion that only intensifies the emotionality of Western classical music. Ms. Simonova garnered international attention in 2009, winning the TV contest Ukraine’s Got Talent. Ten years later she competed in in America's Got Talent: The Champions, reaching the finals and finishing in third place. She has appeared with her sand stories in more than 40 countries
