Giants in the streets of Leeuwarden- what a sight! The world-renowned production of Royal de Luxe had its Dutch premiere in the Cultural Capital of Europe. The streets of Leeuwarden were host to a parade of several metre-high giants for three days, including an unforgettable performance of their show ‘Giant Skates on the Ice’.
Royal de Luxe is an extraordinary street theatre performance. World-famous, but without a performance in the Netherlands, the company travels around the globe with their giant marionettes. Towering over the city, the marionettes didn’t just wander the streets, but interacted with their environment- even looking at the spectators. They ate, danced, showered and slept, and enchanted those who came to seem them. Each performance drew thousands of people, making the visit of the giants a highlight of the cultural calendar.
