She came. She saw. And Sofia qualified for the Benidorm Fest 2024 final. But she’s not resting on her laurels.
“There’s stuff we have to work on, so I’m focused on that right now. I’m so overwhelmed — it’s so strange.”
Strangeness is a key component of her stage show, which was inspired by great artists like Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali.
“The concept behind it is surrealism — the Spanish surrealism. It’s about not judging your own thoughts, not judging your own creations, whatever you think or feel. It’s about all that dream world — they’re fascinated by it.”
“You gotta be kind of crazy to believe in yourself, to fight for yourself what’s correct even if you can’t understand it. When your’e dreaming you can see everything, do whatever you want. I know this is possible because I have dreamed it. We artists are in this intangible world all the time.”
But she’s very much aware that the real-world audience didn’t see all of her creation — including artistic details on the LED — owing to camera cuts.
“It’s kind of sad because…..the way they recorded the performance I feel that you cannot see all the visuals that was going on. That’s something we want to work on.”
And what other changes? Well she doesn’t want people to see her costume change in real-time. “It wasn’t supposed to be shown!”
