The show consists of the creation of scenes drawn and animated using only the artist’s fingers in fine sand scattered over a table of light. The scenes can be personalised for the event and appear and disappear as the delicate movements of the artist portray different images. The act is shown on a large screen which projects the action from a camera placed above the table, so that it can be seen from across the room and all the guests can enjoy the effects of the performance.
The show is personalised using a storyboard, on which the artist creates the different scenes that will be portrayed. For this reason the show requires a preparation time of at least 3 weeks. The sand show usually lasts about 10 minutes and is accompanied by specially selected music for the occasion, which can be pre-recorded or performed live, and which adds a unique and flowing creative feel to the performance. This sand artist show is ideal for product presentations or gala dinners where clients want to make a lasting impact.
