VIDEO / GALLERY: THE STAGE PRESENTATION
COPENHAGEN, DENMARK – Today the stage for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen was officially presented and the stage in B&W Hallerne has water around it, a glowing cube, a pressure-sensitive floor and a huge background screen. Head of Show Jan Lagermand Lundme and producer Per Zachariassen revealed the details of the stage to the press and showed some of the lightning effects that we can expect during Eurovision.
The decoration is inspired by ships on the sea and water and the scene has many cubes that are hollowed out so the 37 artists can actually stand in the cubes. Like Denmark and the Eurovision Island the stage is surrounded by water and with 40 m3 water it can be used as a swimming pool and a platform for fireworks.
