When I was a kid growing up back East, my parents would bring me to a place called Edaville Railroad. It's a theme park now but, back then, the main attraction was a train that went through a track in cranberry bogs. During the holidays, they turned those bogs into a sort of winter wonderland with bright lights and festive sculptures. Passengers were the audience, and the decorated bogs became a kind of "stage."
I remember it being a lot of fun.
Well, for three days in late August, a group of artists in Germany took this idea to a whole new and incredibly impressive level. I love this so much!
Over 500 volunteers and residents in the "Bewegtes Land" art project entertained passengers with a super fun and quirky art performance, all happening along the train's nearly 19-mile route.
Watch the video to see how they surprised their moving audience along the way.
The route went from Jena to Naumburg, a quiet area in the Saale valley's countryside not known for tourists.
All I have to say is that someone really needs to do a U.S. version of this. Pretty please.
