Royal de Luxe

While doing research for a new piece about street theater, I stumbled upon the French marionette street theater group called Royal de Luxe. I remember seeing their 'Little Girl-giant' and the elephant on photo's once (shown above) but can't recall seeing them move. And they move, alright! Those blinking eyes, subtle tilts of the head watching the onlookers, that must have been such a sight from human stand point. Here's a nice, 11 minute YouTube clip of the girl and the elephant, but you can find much more about Royal de Luxe's projects, parades and other giant marionettes on their website.
