Amanda Georgiadi Tenfjord was confirmed to represent Greece at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 back in December. With the first rehearsals of “Die Together” due to take place tomorrow, creative director Fokas Evangelinos has teased details of what we can expect from the staging.
As reported by EurovisionFun, Fokas Evangelinos has teased details of Amanda’s Eurovision staging and styling ahead of Greece’s first rehearsal tomorrow.
Speaking on Studio 4 yesterday the Creative Director explained that:
It will be a simple presentation. She will be alone on stage. Everything will be captured through Amanda’s eyes. I want to emphasize three elements: the absence, the wear and the grief of separation. It is a beautiful and tender setting. There is a visual intervention in the appearance. Through her eyes, we will see everything. The setting is made so that it does not surpass Amanda and the emotion of the song. Everything is connected to focus on it, not on findings, lights, etc.Fokas Evangelinos, creative director for “Die Together”
In addition, he hinted at what to expect from her outfit, which was designed by Celia Kritharioti.
The clothes are wonderful. It is a Doric material. It is beautiful and airy.Fokas Evangelinos, creative director for “Die Together”
In addition, he revealed that he had received offers from other delegations, but declined them to focus solely on Amanda’s staging. Besides Greece, he has previously worked on performances for Spain (2019), Russia (2019, 2016, 2014, 2008, 2006), Azerbaijan (2013), Ukraine (2008) and Belarus (2007).
