A piece of the Berlin Wall
A piece of the Berlin Wall

…an amazing street theatre event, from 1-4 October in the streets of Berlin, FREE of charge!!

In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall the legendary French street theatre company Royal the Luxe, in cooperation with the Berliner Festspiele, will present this gigantic open air event.
On their way through Berlin  two marionettes Little Giantess and Big Giant, which measure up to 15 metres in height,will be telling out a fairy tale about a reunion after years of separation.
The Little Giantess and the Big Giant, created by the legendary French street theatre company Royal de Luxe, will amaze and astonish Berlin’s people and visitors and shall resurrect this moment in world history and the overwhelming emotions of 1989. The giant puppets will pass by significant Berlin sites – such as Unter den Linden, Brandenburg Gate, Hauptbahnhof and Straße des 17. Juni. As last seen in London (2006) and Santiago de Chile (2007), Royal de Luxe will move and enthuse millions of people in the German capital.
