This is stunning….

Ukraine’s Got Talent – rather more sophisticated than a dancing dog.  This will amaze you, I think…..Kseniya Simenova recounts Germany conquering Ukraine in the second world war. She brings calm, then conflict. A couple on a bench become a woman’s face; a peaceful walkway becomes a conflagration; a weeping widow morphs into an obelisk for an unknown soldier. Simonova looks like some vengeful Old Testament deity as she destroys then recreates her scenes – with deft strokes, sprinkles and sweeps she keeps the narrative going. She moves the judges to tears as she subtitles the final scene “you are always near”.

  1. That is fantastic, completely mesmerising, hypnotic. Loved hearing what sounds like an orchestral version of Metallica’s ‘Nothing Else Matters’ in the closing sections.

    her biggest talent is not getting utterly livid at the sand in the nails, though. Bravo.
