Liverpool’s Gigantic Spectacle

April 18th, 2012

Even the tallest residents of Liverpool, England are going to feel very small come April 22 when a 30 foot marionette is set to descend upon the city in search of his lost daughter.

Royal De Luxe, one of the world’s greatest street theatre companies, is bringing their Little Giant Girl to the streets of Liverpool for three days of gigantic spectacle. Their performance, Sea Odyssey, is a tale of love, loss and reunion, and it will take place across North Liverpool and in key parts of the city.

Over the past dozen years Royal De Luxe has brought their particular grand scale performance style to countries all across Europe, as well as Asia, South America, and Africa. They have created a series of spectacular shows involving giant creatures, sometimes animal (as in The Sultan’s Elephant) and sometimes human, standing sometimes as big tall as 12 meters high.
