LJUBLJANA, SLOVENIA – The Slovenian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest, ManuElla has revealed her staging arrangements for the show.
The singer will be joined by four backing vocalists – Lea Sirk, Karin Zemljič, Mitja Bobič and Marjan Hvala – as well as a Dutch acrobat – Jannik Baltzer Hattel – on stage in Stockholm.
Hattel is a member of the No Limits Acrobatics trio. The choreographer of the Slovenian stage performance, Anže Škrube, says, “The stage performance includes a number of visual effects.
The main elements are a LED display, many shades of light colours, fireworks and wind. All these elements give additional value to the performance”.
Commenting on the inclusion of an acrobat on stage, Škrube notes, “He is one of the best Danish gymnasts, and I am very pleased to have him in our team. Let him surprise you with his tricks; you will see them when he appears on the stage. It is all coordinated, and I believe it will have a great effect as a whole”.
Marijan Hvala is the co-producer of this year’s Slovenian entry, while Lea Sirk, Karin Zemljič, Mitja Bobič are all famous singers. Lea and Karin have both taken part in the show as backing vocalists before, with Lea appearing in 2010 and Karin last year.
