“The Power of Water” is the title of the interval act for the first Semi-Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2021.
Singer Davina Michelle and actress Thekla Reuten will be staring in the interval act for the first Semi-Final of next months Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam. Head of Show, Gerben Bakker explained that:
“For centuries we Dutch have had a relationship with water that is unique in the world. We fought against it, but we can’t live without it. In the act we tell the story of the power of the water and the resilience that we all have.”
The performance will feature recordings from across the Netherland’s delta works including dykes, locks and levees which protect the country from the North Sea. Furthermore augmented reality will be used to create a watery scene within the Rotterdam Ahoy.
Davina Michelle who composed the music commented:
“Almost two years ago I was approached by the Eurovision team with the concept in which the story of water is central. Water connects, is resilient and is an inseparable part of the Netherlands. Together with Eurovision we have worked on a unique act in which these characteristics are central. I wrote the song ‘Sweet Water’ in which water is used as a metaphor for something that connects people in the world. We are all different and live in different environments, but we all need water and it brings us all together. I can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on together for so long.”
