Firstly, remind yourselves what happened in the first rehearsal:
And now here is what we’ve noticed in today’s second rehearsal:
The performance begins with Luca walking in slowly and with camera angles changing with every step he takes. He is wearing a black, sleeve-less t-shirt with white on the shoulders. After some moments, four backing dancers, two male and two female, all dressed in red join him and together they deliver a professional and energetic show, with the dancers complementing well the performance. The black and red outfits match the black and red background. The screen undergoes changes in the resolution ranging from full screen to a more panoramic style. Throughout the whole show, the backdrop is busy with different scenes including blurred-like to laser-like thin lights appearing from the ground. He remains alone for a few moments on stage before being joined again by the dancers, culminating in a few rapid camera angles and more energetic dances.
