Script Author and Host: Olga Piccolo
Featuring Alexey Chizhik (vibraphone)
Sand animation is one of the most stunning and beautiful types of applied art and animation. This genre style was conceived by the Canadian animator Caroline Leaf. Sand animation is created “live” before the audience: thin layers of sand are applied on glass and shown on a screen using a projector. The enchanting, fantastical and magical sounds of the vibraphone, woven together in a fairytale, hold the audience’s imagination throughout the concert. The synthesis of the words of the speaker, the magical and crystalline music of Marcello, Vivaldi, Mozart and Boccherini performed on the vibraphone and sand animation will immerse audiences in an amazing world for forty-five minutes.
