SHOW MOVED TO JANUARY 2020
Kseniya Simonova is an international TV and online phenomenon, specialising in the unique world of sand animation. Often accompanied by the foremost works of the classical repertoire, her remarkable 'stand stories' pack an incredible emotional punch and are an evocative joy to behold. Click here to see her Golden Buzzer-winning animation on the theme of cancer sufferers and victims presented recently on 'Britain's Got Talent: The Champions'.
Kseniya is now coming to London for a one-off performance at The Tabernacle in Notting Hill.
Kseniya's breakthrough came when she presented a sand animation about a couple separated during World War II for the semi-finals of 'Ukraine's Got Talent'. She went on to win the competition with another moving sand animation encouraging children not to neglect their parents. This was viewed more than 2 million times on YouTube, leading 'The Guardian' to say "Simonova has achieved her goal as an artist. If we take it that art's purpose is to illuminate the world in a new way, provoke a reaction, and somehow alter the consciousness of the viewer, then her work is a huge success." Since then, more than 200 of her animations have been posted on YouTube.
She has presented her sand stories in more than 40 countries, and in venues ranging from the Royal Albert Hall to the Sydney Opera House. Simon Cowell recently described her work as "one of the most beautiful acts in the history of 'Got Talent'" after she appeared on 'America's Got Talent: The Champions'. She is now tipped to win the title of 'Most Talented Person' in the 'World's Got Talent' competition.
Now, London audiences have the chance to experience her vision for themselves for one day only. All proceeds will be donated to charity.
