The Grey People Eurovision Song Contest 2016


Δημοσιεύτηκε στις 10 Μαΐ 2016

A spectacular Dance performance choreographed by Benke Rydman capturing the internal and external struggles of refugees in the world.
The idea of Eurovision is to unite people, but in recent times we have been reading about a divided Europe, and refugees - something embodied in a powerful dance number in the first semifinal. "We want to get people to stop and think," said show producer Sven Stojanovic.

The performance, which has been named Grey People, is about how a group of people fleeing across land and sea, hoping to reach a safer place.

- We’re taking on a very serious subject in an otherwise glamorous entertainment show. That is a big challenge, but create an artistic and abstract interpretation of the current situation and the challenge that Europe faces today, says Sven Stojanovic as show producer of the Eurovision in 2016.

The directors Fredrik "Benke" Rydan and Jennie Widegren has choreographed 18 dancers and a child. All the performers on stage is dressed in gray and are identically painted with a gray face paint. Even the dancers' hair is gray.

Fredrik "Benke" Rydan explains the gray theme:

- For us, it is a gray mass without identities that come to our countries. So you have to wash away the gray, which become a filter. Once we have removed the gray filter, you can see a human being.

The clip was originally aired on May 10th 2016 in the first semi-final of Eurovision Song Contest 2016.
