On Saturday, January 20, stimulate your imagination at Flushing Town Hall with Dreams of Sand by sand artist Borja González. With only a little bit of sand and his hands, González tells the story of two people, from their childhood dreams through their experiences of adult life. This emotional, nonverbal story captivates audiences through the unique and delicate medium of sand.
Borja González was born in La Rioja, Spain. A graphic designer, illustrator and plastic artist by trade, he has been exploring sand art for over 10 years. González has achieved international acclaim with shows in Spanish, European and American theatres. His performance at Flushing Town Hall is accompanied by beautiful live music.
Prior to the show, join Borja González for an interactive arts workshop as he instructs participants in working with sand, first on paper, then on a small-scale light table. Explore imagination, creativity, and precision while learning the basic technique of sand art.
Tickets for the interactive arts workshop are $8/$5 Children/free for Members with tickets to 2:15 pm, and tickets to the family show are $14/$10 Members/$8 Children/$6 Member Children. For more information, visit www.flushingtownhall.org or call (718) 463-7700 x222.
