Katerine Duska has completed her first rehearsal on the Expo Tel Aviv stage with her entry 'Better Love'. She had the maximum allowed number of 6 people on stage with her. Katerine is joined by 5 backing singer-dancers on stage for her performance as she bids to take Greece back to the Grand Final after 2 years.

Katerine Duska will take to the stage 16th in the first Semi-Final on Tuesday 14 May at Expo Tel Aviv in Israel.

Katerine is a well-established Greece-Canadian musical artist with a track record of success. Her dark melodic tones have helped her establish her career with a much acclaimed 2016 debut album Embodiment and her single Fire Away that was picked for a television advert campaign in Canada.

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.
