B&W: TECHNICAL REHEARSALS & A WATERFALL!
COPENHAGEN, DENMARK – With exactly one month to the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 the first technical rehearsals took place at B&W Hallerne today. The platforms for the audience, the stage and green room is done and now the old shipyard looks like an arena for Eurovision.
Stage designer Claus Zier is really happy after the first rehearsals. The scene and lightning is done and now you can see how it moves and works. He calls the stage a steel structure with a lot of lights and it will be a huge party. The technical production manager assistant votes in and calls the Eurovision 2014 “the wildest show”.
During the technical rehearsals everything is tested, including anything that can go wrong. Head of Production Kamilla Monies says that all the technology needs to be tested so they can find and resolve any defects before the real rehearsals that will start on April 28th.
Head of Show Jan Lagermand Lundme show some of the arena in a video made by DR. He won’t reveal the stage as it looks in the halls but we know that the stage is diamond shaped with two catwalks and the green room is in front of the stage. In the video, which is in Danish, Jan Lagermand Lundme says that the stage contains a lot of water and the stage is actually one big waterfall. It has never been seen before in the world and the head of show calls the stage “fantastic”.
