"Die Riesen kommen"
spielzeit’europa, the Berliner Festspiele’s theatre season, will be showing an open-air theatre spectacle in October 2009, free of charge, in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. 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, which measure up to 15 metres in height, will pass by significant Berlin sites – such as Unter den Linden, Straße des 17. Juni, Brandenburger Tor – and shall be telling out a fairy tale about a reunion after years of separation. 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.
