In today’s rehearsal, the attending Press had the opportunity to watch the full rehearsals from these participating countries at this year’s Junior Eurovision. Before we find out what happens in Poland’s rehearsal today, you can find out how their first rehearsal went right here.
What happens during Laura’s performance?
We see Laura in the middle of the stage with her backing dancers with smoke surrounding the performers on stage. Laura stays in the middle of the stage as she performs her song, while her backing dancers dance around her, whether this to her left or behind her. Laura is mainly position in the middle of the stage throughout the perfromance.
As for the staging of the song, the performance relies heavily on graphics being incorporated into the performacen. Whether its at the beginning of the performance where a pre-recorded video is shown, or the starry background has bee overlayed into the performance. In addition, the performance also uses purotechnics towards the end of the perfromance.
You are able to watch a preview of Laura’s performance right here:
