A bolt from the blue.
Your life on the line. A mountain vista.
There is a lot to unpack in Georgia’s first rehearsal performance and at the centre of the malestrom: Oto Nemsadze. In the first ten seconds we go from a lighting strike, to a heart rate monitor and then a view of mountains.
After the first chorus blue vistas give way to red, as barbed wire swirls through the skies, and the world sets on fire.
Oto is then joined by his backing dancers, all clad in black, for a dark climax.
The piece ends in sunset and a handshake on the screen. Certainly it is an emotional rollercoaster over the course of three minutes. Oto sounds fantastic and hit his camera marks.
As mentioned however, there is a lot going on here, so for some it could be an assault on the senses.
