It’s just one of the great works you’ll see in the upcoming short film “Variété Rosé – The Eurovision Edition”. Five other artists are showing their skills at historic sites in Rotterdam. The film is part of Rotterdam’s host city program, Eurovision Song Contest 2021.
Openness to variety; Six artists and one host
In this short film, the illustrious Variety MC Vanderwal takes you from the Laurenskerk Tower along the iconic venues in Rotterdam, home of the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. In those venues, six diverse international artists demonstrate their crazy skills. They are inspired by the well-known or forgotten Eurovision entry from their home country.
Irene Skye comes from Australia, who will be shown standing on her hands at the highest watchtower in the Netherlands. The Euromast platform, which Kate Miller-Heidke sang on Zero Gravity, is the entry from Australia during Eurovision 2019. David Severins comes from Holland, who shows his playing skills in the old Tropicana dome on the song Shangri La by Gerard Joling, entered the Netherlands in the year 1998. Lisa Chodala from Germany will encounter a barrage of sparks in the former RDM Shed Hall in Heijplaat when she was wielding swords during the Feuer period. This song was sung by Irene Scheer in 1978 and was entering Germany at that time. Students from Techniek College Rotterdam perform fireworks. Charlie Hessen from England chose Love Will Set You Free, UK Entry 2012, sung by Engelbert Humberdink. In the Citizens’ Hall of Rotterdam City Hall, stuntman Manon Fairblanc from Belgium meets fellow acrobatic Yael Ritter from Israel. They conclude the film with an acrobatic duo to enter Israel in 2013. A song by Rak Bishfilo by singer Moran Mazur.
think about it
In fact, the film can be considered as a performance during the Eurovision Song Contest. Unfortunately, this is not possible, but thanks to financial support from the city program, it is possible to record and communicate everything to viewers via various channels so these are busy days in the offices of the makers of Rotterdam. Dave van der Wal and David Severins have produced their own theatrical productions under the banner of their founder Variété Nederland since 2017 and can now add a true variety film to their résumés.
Beginning May 14, the film will be shown online via Open Up To Rotterdam’s private channel
