The Giants of Nantes

From Friday 27 to Sunday, May 29, 2011, a huge crowd followed the adventures of the giants of Royal de Luxe in the streets of Nantes, France.

The little girl and the giant go on their adventures and the people of Nantes gape in astonishment.

The amazing spectacle was caught on film by FKY, a graphics designer based in the city. The opportunity for this sort of awesome footage does not happen very often!

Royal de Luxe is a French mechanical marionette street theatre company.

They were founded in 1979 by Jean Luc Courcoult. Based in Nantes, the company has performed in France, Belgium, England, Germany, Iceland, Chile, Australia and Mexico.
