The video of the Spanish entry for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest is already available on the website of the country’s broadcaster RTVE.
Dancing in the rain already has a completed official music video and it was released on the website of RTVE on 14 March. The song featuring in the video was announced to be the definite version that Ruth Lorenzo will perform on 10 May in Copenhagen.
The clip was shot on 8 March in an abandoned 19th century spinning mill. In this backdrop, Ruth Lorenzo is seen singing alone in some scenes which alternate with others that show her and the italian dancer Giuseppe Di Bella dancing together. The routine was created by the choreographer Myriam Benedicted.
Water, in different forms, is another protagonist of the video. The shooting was very complicated, said the singer. We were cold, I fell, I lost my voice… But the result is worthwhile.
The director of the video, Paloma Zapata, explained that they looked for an uneasy backdrop, a place in ruins. We wanted something very visual, artistic, and to experiment with the image, to break the stereotypes of what’s usually done for Eurovision, she added.
Now there is only the question whether the rain will fall on the stage in Copenhagen, too…
