After the first rehearsal of the Netherlands’ representative S10 Dutch newspaper “Algemeen Dagblad” got in-touch with the Creative Director of the act of S10 Freek Ros. One of the reasons for the newspaper and the Director to have an interview is because the act of S10 came across as maybe too plain, and because of that maybe even too simple, for the song and the singer after her first rehearsal.
The best is yet to come
Freek Ros said in the interview that “the best is yet to come”, and that the most memorable part of the act, except for S10 herself and her song, still needs to be revealed. This part is not included in the rehearsal videos which have been published online by the European Broadcasting Union.
S10 takes charge
Freek Ros said that S10 really took charge of her act; she had a concept in her mind, and she wanted to see it shine on-stage. Especially the lighting aspect of things was something that S10 took charge of. Freek Ros also mentioned that the concept of the staging is a little different from the grand acts we can see on-stage a lot of times. The act is modest for a reason, because it needs to convey the emotions of the singer’s meaning with the song.
What we think might happen
The thing that we think will happen in the act is that the staging will change from dark and gloomy to full of light and power. The song of S10 is about growing up with mental issues, and in interviews the singer has mentioned that she has overcome these issues, but lives with them in the back of her mind. These issues shaped her, and are also part of who she is, and she accepts them as a part of her. A staging that evokes a feeling of “it will get better” fits the song perfectly, and shows who S10 really is.
