Colossal Marionettes Walk The Streets of Berlin

In early October, France’s Royal de Luxe street theatre company came to Berlin to perform a several day street theatre spectacle dubbed “The Berlin Reunion” celebrating the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. As part of this event, a pair of huge marionettes known as the Big giant and the Little Giantess (an uncle and his niece, long separated by a wall that the gant himself has finally succeeded in demolishing) searched the streets of the city for one another and finally being reunited. Check out the full article from There are many more pictures to be seen. Totally worth checking out, and an inspiring piece.

This one above is beautifully shot.

I love how expressive the marionette’s eyes are even though they’ve got limited eyelid movement.

You can never go wrong with aviator goggles.

These are the coolest puppets ever.
This one of them embracing is actually quite touching.
