The construction of the stage for this year’s Junior Eurovision has finished at Gliwice Arena. TVP has published a picture of the structure finished with the lights on featuring the logo. So, everything is ready to start the stand-in rehearsals!
Giorgos Stylianou-Matsis, one of the most recognised producers and stage designers in Poland, is the face behind the 2019 JESC stage.
This year’s stage design includes a 10m x 10m LED square floor with rounded corners and two catwalks including a big one that connects the Green Room with the main stage. Another catwalk connects a smaller stage to the main stage. The LED back screen is 40 metres.
“The unique design’s eye-catching element is the LED ribbon that marks centre stage and the walkways. The ribbon gives the stage a spacious, light and simple design form. The rounded corners of the stage give a soft feel to the design, associated with wind, air, like a kite, a dandelion seed.”
19 countries will compete at this year’s Junior Eurovision, which sees the return of Spain after 13 years, and the withdrawal of Azerbaijan and Israel. The 2019 contest will take place on November 24 in Gliwice under the motto #shareTheJOY. Poland will host Junior Eurovision for the first time after the victory of Roksana Wegiel in 2018. Roksana herself, Ida Nowakowska and Aleksander Sikora will present the show live from Gliwice Arena.
