Berlin Snaps III: Die Riesen Kommen

Posted by sepoy on October 05, 2009 · 1 min read

I know that I need to do more than just put photos but, some of us are trying to get ready for teaching, ok? In any case, these are cool pictures. So for the commemoration of the official unification of Germany, two giants walked the streets of Berlin from Oct 1-4th.

Die Riesen Kommen by the French street theater group, Royal de Luxe, was awesome to behold.

Behold. (Also, with video on the flickr you can see how the puppeteers worked the giant)

We had a particularly awesome vantage point.

They also showered us with replica postcards from pre-1989 illuminating the partitioned lives.
