Chinese New Year Impressions
23 Feb 2018, 8:30 PM - 9:15 PM
Lunar New Year customs and traditions come alive in the magical hands of sand artist Stacey Lee together with music by East-West fusion band SZINC and acclaimed percussionist Mohamed Noor.
SZINC (pronounced “sync”) is an East-West fusion band comprising erhu virtuoso Mike Chiang, sanxian artist Jessica Lu and composer and keyboardist Christine Sham. Their unique band name symbolises the synchronisation of culture and people with a new (新) sound and collaboration. SZINC strives to create new sparks in the arts scene by collaborating with dancers, singers, ethnic musicians of different cultures and styles and they are not afraid to break rules and set new standards.
Stacey Lee started off as a trained animator and during a stint in London, she came across buskers who did sand art and was inspired by them. In 2010, she took the leap of faith and concentrated on being a full-time sand artist and has never looked back since. She has performed for well-known organisations including the Ministry of Manpower, Capita Land, Sembcorp Marine, Google, and many more, at their corporate functions in front of many dignitaries and cabinet ministers. Countries she has performed in include Germany, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines and Australia.
