Berlin Reunion

October 29, 2009

France’s Royal de Luxe street theatre company performed this larger than life sized animatronic street spectacle titled The Berlin Reunion a few weeks ago. 1.5 million Europeans lined the streets of Berlin to see these amazing ‘puppets’ walk the streets looking for each other. “Part of the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Reunion show featured two massive marionettes, the Big Giant, a deep-sea diver, and his niece, the Little Giantess. The storyline of the performance has the two separated by a wall, thrown up by “land and sea monsters”. The Big Giant has just returned from a long and difficult - but successful - expedition to destroy the wall, and now the two are walking the streets of Berlin, seeking each other after many years apart.” View all the images at the Boston Globe website.
