Eurovision 2022: Greece’s Second Rehearsal!

The last rehearsal for today is the one of Greece with Amanda Georgiadi Tenfjord and her song ‘Die Together’. The first rehearsal received huge acceptance from the fandom being the only entry that climbed in the odds. The artistic approach of the staging director Fokas Evangelinos seems to have left great impressions even though a small snippet was given to the public from Tik Tok. Today, Amanda is coming again on stage for her second rehearsal, hoping to keep the eyes on her and to achieve the best possible result for Greece.

The Second Rehearsal

The song begins in a dark stage and with close shots on Amanda’s face that fade to black. Amanda opens and closes her eyes based on the pauses of the song. Then, the shot opens and we can see Amanda standing up. There are several chairs on stage, which seem to have melted legs.

The tempo of the song is getting stronger and now from above we see the stage turning blue, the color that from now and on dominates Greece’s staging. In the bridge of the song, the camera is close to Amanda while in the leds we see her shadow dancing with a male one.

Towards the end of the song there are general shots and the stage is filled up with lights and shadows around Amanda. Die Together ends as it begins with closing of Amanda’s eyes.

Below you can watch an exclusive preview clip of Amanda’s second rehearsal:

Greece: “Everything on stage will be captured though Amanda’s eyes”

Fokas Evangelinos, the Greek stage director for this year’s delegation, has spoken to “Στουντιο 4“, a greek show in ERT, about Amanda and her perfomance in Turin.

Just a day before the Greek delegation leaves for Turin, the Greek choreographer and director, talked about his cooperation with Amanda and her show in the stage of PalaOlimpico.

The last rehearsals were done today:

Today was our last rehearsal at ERT. It was the final one, with sound and everything and we are ready.

What are your feeling about Amanda and “Die Together”:

I have fell in love with this song. I got crazy both with “Die Together” and Amanda herself. I love the pauses and the empty sound of the song. It is a very powerfull element in the track. Amanda is exotic, she may look very serious but she has a great sense of humor. We had a wonderful cooperation.

How will “Die Together” come to life on stage?

It will be a simple perfomance. Amanda will be alone on stage. Everything will be captured though her eyes. There are three things that I want to highlight in the perfomance: Absence, Wear and the Sadness of a breakup. It is a very beautiful and lovely staging. There is of course an artistic intervention in the perfomance. We will se everything that’s going on though her eyes. The backdrop is designed in a way that it won’t overcome Amanda or the emotion of the song. Everything is connected in a way that the viewer will focus on her and not on the props or the lightning etc

How is the outfit that Celia Kritharioti designed for Amanda?

The outfit is wonderful. It’s made by a doric material. It’s beautiful and airy.

He has also mentioned his favorites perfomances he has directed and he has mentioned: Greece 2005, Azerbaijan 2013 and Russia 2016 and 2019.

Greece will perform 15th in the first semifinal with the song “Die Together”.

Will Greece manage to get a good result in Turin? Write your prediction on the comments below!
