Visual Sand Performance to come to Penn State Fayette

3/12/2012 —

SandStory: The Art of Joe Castillo will dazzle audiences on Thursday, March 22 at 7:00 p.m. in Penn State Fayete, The Eberly Campus’ Maggie Hardy Magerko Auditorium. This event is free of charge and open to the public.

SandStory consists of art images created by Joe Castillo as he uses his hands to draw in sand on a light table. The performance is scored and choreographed to recorded music, and it is performed live on stage with Castillo’s work projected on the screen.

Castillo’s love for stories moved him to the realm of becoming a motivational performing artist and storyteller where he developed SandStory, ArtStory, and WordStory presentations in both English and Spanish. His art has been sold worldwide and his presentations have been seen by hundreds of thousands of people. Castillo has performed across the United States as well as in Dubai and Beijing, China.

Chad Long, assistant director of student affairs at Penn State Fayette, said “This is not your typical performance. SandStory is a unique opportunity for the campus and the community to experience art and music in unexpected ways.”
