What happens on stage?
The show starts with Katerine standing on a prop that looks like an ancient Greek fountain. There are 2 dancers with swords in each hand to the side and 3 dancers sitting on the front of the props. Later in the performance, this turns around to reveal a wall of flowers. Flowers become a theme later on with flowers opening on the video screen as the performance takes on an increasingly floral look.
Katerine is wearing a white dress with a line of pearls braided in her hair. Her 3 dancers are dressed in white and yellow-layered tops with high collars with large pearls to the front. There is a definite link to official music video, where the layered clothing, pearls and swords also made an appearance.
As the song progresses, the 2 sword wielding dancers perform synchronised ballet and contemporary dance moves whilst the 3 additional dancers interact with the staging, lying down to interact with the LED flooring. Altogether, it is an eclectic yet impactful display.
