This morning I was completely captivated by the storytelling of this woman; Kseniya Simonova – Winner of Ukraine’s Got Talent.
The next Susan Boyle may have come from the Ukraine. Kseniya Simonova is not a singer. Instead she is an amazing artist and storyteller. Her means of conveying a story is not with words, but by running her hands through the sand.
Kseniya Simonova is a sand animator, who was the winner of Ukraine’s Got Talent for 2009. More than 14 million viewers have seen her YouTube video of the moving depiction of the Nazi invasion of Ukraine during World War II.
There is something very hypnotic about watching her fingers flying over the sand, creating then destroying images, morphing one image skillfully into another and telling a story with her fingers and the sand.
