The EBU have today revealed the stage design for this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
The EBU announced on their website:
The visual displays you will see in Warsaw will be very modern and representative for a competition organized for young people in the 21st century. It will even include a number of technical solutions that have never been used in Junior Eurovision before including elements of augmented reality!
Anna Brodnicka, author of the concert’s scenography, was inspired by the rich symbolism of a circle and it’s connection to our lives. Spherical and round shapes will be displayed on huge multimedia surfaces and several hundred light devices will be used to visually identify the competitors as well as take the televised audience into a magical space.
“The circle has always been a symbol of perfectness, life and unity,”
“We move around the circle of life… We all experience many changes during this journey: Starting as children, then becoming a teenager and finally moving into adulthood.” She believes that the circumference of the circle represents the circle of life that is all around us and the centre of that circle is what is shared by all the living creatures that are equally important to us.”
This year’s Junior Eurovision will be held on the 29th November. For the first time all 16 countries will be performing from their own countries due to the current Covid 19 pandemic, with the rest of the show including the interval being shown live from Warsaw in Poland.
To help ensure fairness, the broadcasters from the 13 participating countries will use a similar stage layout and technical setup.Ida Nowakowska-Herndon, Rafał Brzozowski and Małgorzata Tomaszewska will present the show.
