The remarkable French marionette street theatre Royal de Lux unveiled their latest creations this past weekend. As the highlight of the Estuary 2009 Arts Festival in Nantes, the theater company drew a gigantic crowd to view a gigantic fairytale. Nantes also happens to be the home of Jules Verne.
A simple story depicted a sad, giant, deep-sea diver searching for his lost niece who was stolen by Icelandic giants. The tale was told over multiple days and locations throughout the city finally culminating in the reunion of the diver and his niece.
