“It’s official: Hell has frozen over. Finland has won.”

As a follow-up to last week’s post, the winner has been declared.

Before you click on the following links to see who (or more precisely, what has been determined to be the best act by popular vote), take a moment to think about the strangest performance piece you have seen.

Now, think harder: The kind of work you saw at a festival that was just so out there, so beyond your imagination, so bizarre you didn’t even know how to explain it to your friends; the kind of work that makes you wonder how in the world did they come up with this? Or, even more so, why in the world did they come up with this?

I am pretty sure that the Eurovision contest winner has set a new standard for the absolute strangeness of popular culture. Go ahead fringe festival creators (and costume designers around the world) — try to top this!

    In light of the observation:
    “(In last week’s interview, Staniewski proposed that Athens will, once again, become the world’s cultural destination. Could this be proof?)”
    I say, hell yeah! Bring it on!!! Best show I saw in YEARS.
