Summer festivals – Antwerp, Belgium

This was one of the most spectacular things I have ever seen.

“Royal de Luxe” is a French mechanical marionette street theatre company. They were founded in 1979 by Jean-Luc Courcoult. Their home base is in Nantes, France and we were lucky to welcome them in Antwerp in August 2010 with the performance: “The diver, his hand and the little female giant”. They were dropped at different locations in Antwerp. Everybody loved the giant figures, they were big and at the same time so alive as well. People were interested whether they really would find each other at the end of the journey. And luckily for everyone they did.
