Description

Traditional Chinese myths and legends are brought to life with music and spectacular modern sand painting, bringing audiences an exceptional and exotic visual spectacle. Performer Echo Gao (Gao Jie) created a new form of performance with Sanji Sand Art, as performed in China and on Chinese TV. This is the European premiere of the work of Echo Gao and Sanji Sand Art. Sand art is complemented by a wonderfully prepared Ebru and Moliu art show, in which the artist creates images by painting on water. It’s as though it’s magic! A wonderful and unpredictable live show.

We thoroughly enjoyed this novel and beautiful show. The artist live-illustrates in sand, and 2 other methods, overlaying the images elegantly and skillfully to tell the story.

We weren’t sure what to expect from Sand Fantasy Art from China but were quickly entranced. The whole experience was peaceful and relaxing, with a fair bit of awe at the skill on display! [...] This is very different to most other Fringe shows, but very special.

There was only a small audience for the first performance of this gentle show but most were engrossed by this fascinating display of drawing with sand. [...] this was a remarkable display of skill and would fascinate anyone who enjoys drawing.
