Fan Yang, 19th time Guinness Book of Record winner, has finally returned to Singapore for a magnificent performance at Resorts World Theatre, Sentosa. We left the theatre awestruck by the shear brilliance of Fan Yang’s performance. There are ONLY TWO MORE SHOWS left tomorrow, that is (Sun) 29th Nov ’15. Don’t, don’t ever, ever miss it if you are not overseas this weekend. It is definitely the perfect family entertainment for the school holidays.
Today, myself and definitely Audrey as well, were kids again. I found myself mesmerized and repeatedly OooOOOo and AhhHhHHh while my kids could simply watched with mouth agape. Yes, their eyes were locked on the charming performer and totally ignored me. Others would think that they are more cool than me! However, at that point of time, I didn’t find myself an embarassment while fantasizing over the dreamy bubbles. I simply allowed myself to totally enjoy the fun.
Fan Yang, the Bubble Legendary, kickstarted the show with a few waves of giant bubble curtains. It looks something like this except that he was doing it alone without the audience on stage. He sent waves after waves of curtains in very fast motion, much to our delight!
While my kids and I have watched many bubble shows at mini perfomances at parties or family-related events, none of them could match the feel and adrenaline rush from the live performance coupled with multi-colour laser display and energetic music. Fan Yang awed us with act after act of bubbles of various sizes, and a lot of them contains dry ice smoke within as well. He was really great at transforming the bubbles into artistic pieces that reflected carefully-curated dazzle of light display within the bubbles. It is a pity that we were not allowed to take photographs or videos during his performance.
The first act had us showered by the bubble-blowing machines throwing out a gazillion of them into the air.
If you haven’t known already, Fan Yang is a world renowned bubble scientist, artist, and performer. Over the past two decades, Fan has explored the fascinating unknown world of soap bubbles, combining art with science. He has transformed a simple bubble into a beautiful piece of art, bringing bubble media into a new artistic dimension for the masses. Fan’s ingenious creations and dedication to the pursuit of his dream has brought to life an utterly unique form of entertainment. He emerged as Master of the Soap Bubbles and earned international acclaim in Germany, being voted “Artist of the Year” and is currently a 19-time Guinness Book of World Record holder, most recently having put an 8,800 lb elephant in a bubble.
You know what Jiejie told me during intermission? She doesn’t want to be a doctor anymore. She wants to be a bubble show performer when she grows up. I guess that will take away the need to study hard for major exams, the first being her PSLE in 3 years’ time?? Hahhaha!
We were treated to more visual delights during the second half of the show. The Legend of The Silver Sea was another highlight of the performance with amazing 3D laser light display, a masterpiece of its kind combining bubbles and ultimate laser technology with the world’s first Silver, Gold and 3D lasers. Here’s a video from 2013 show where you will be able to see some snippets of the same light display. This time round, Deni Yang, Fan Yang’s son, did not perform.
Today, we were indeed blessed to catch him live on stage. Fan Yang gave many chances for audience engagement and our kids were one of the lucky ones. Wey was one stage with another little girl to be inside a giant bubble.
There was also a couple who celebrated their love story on stage. Didi took part in the giant curtain display. Never had I seen him volunteering with such enthusiasm in order to be part of a performance!
Jiejie got missed out when she tried to volunteer herself because she tripped over my bag and someone stepped on her little pinky while getting onto stage. Seeing my little princess so upset, I decided to pay for a giant bubble photo-taking experience after the show so that she could have some fun too. For $15/photo, it was really worth it in my opinion. I got her smiles and we had so many shot attempts because the photographer gave his best in every photo he took. For the first time in a paid attraction photo, we never felt the rush to go off after 2 shots. Never before was an NG so pleasing to us. Whahhhahha! I wouldn’t mind if he NG forever >.<
Fan’s spectacular shows have been featured in Canada, USA, Singapore and over worldwide TV broadcast with his appearances on “Late Night with David Letterman”, “LIVE! with Regis and Kelly”, “The View”, “CBS Sunday Morning”, “Today in NY”, CW11, CNN, Cirque du Soleil “Soltrom”, TNN, Disney-MGM, NHK-TV in Japan, RAI-TV in Italy, Canale 5, Television Chile Guinness Prime Time, FOX TV, CCTV in Beijing, TCS in Singapore, The Learning Channel, London Weekend Television, CCTV in Canada BC, and much more.
Fan Yang really lives up to his name as the Bubble Legendary. We hope that he will be back again in the not so long future. His performance is suitable for 2 to 102 years old. But I guess everybody in house will feel as though they were all under 12! We saw many delightful faces from the grandfathers and grandmas in the crowd. I believe they have enjoyed the show as much as we did! We also hope that our giveaway winner and her family has enjoyed it as well.
We just had to share one last video – the madness in the house during the ceremonial closing scene. Yes, we stepped into a world of bubbles!
