Abstract performance to celebrate Switzerland's rail opening – Daily Mail


The Swiss have put on one of the most bizarre opening ceremonies in history to mark the completion of the world’s longest tunnel at a fairground in Erstfeld, in the north of the country. Famed for their trains, organisers roped in more than 600 dancers, acrobats and dramatic actors and even composed the new route’s very own theme tune as they pulled out all the stops for Wednesday’s inauguration. The upbeat, glitzy celebration included performers dressed in orange miners’ suits and protective helmets dancing atop a moving rail car to the rhythm of pick-axes and construction machinery. Trapeze artists hung from chains or ropes, a band blared out a thumping military march and helicopters buzzed overhead as the ceremony strived to both thrill and offer a show of European solidarity. It also featured a baby with feathered white wings (pictured, right) and oversized head and a man dancing with a bird’s nest on his head (top left). Music was provided by Alpine horn players, an army band and live choirs, and also even featured dancers in their underwear (bottom left).

  1. tbfh i honestly don’t think this is anything more than an abstract dance. this had me laughing cause sure it’s very odd/weird but i wouldnt put it past anything but that. just, weird. it’s most likely a cultural difference that makes this seem super creepy, but this is not satanic at all, don’t assume something abstract or vastly different/hard to understand is satanic lmao. y’all are outta pocket

  2. Yeah. Nothing like a little Baphomet with an accompanying kaleidoscope of all-seeing eyes at the grand opening of train station, with political leaders in attendance, to put a stop to those "crazy" conspiracy theorists, eh?

    Dear political leaders, if want us to stop being SO "crazy" in our theories, ya might want to stop proving them right! Just a suggestion.

  3. Yes and back in the 1940's a group of Germans also did a number of "abstract" lab tests on some Hebrews in a summer camp…
    It is actually those very same Germans' grandchildren performing.
    Being abstract must run in the family i guess…
