Truly Inspirational

...

The French street theater company, Royal de Luxe is at it again!

We've only ever seen photographs of their work, which typically involves giant wooden marionettes performing in an urban setting. But, boy-oh-boy, would I love to experience one of their performances in person!

The craftsmanship of their work is so immaculate, and their aesthetic makes my heart sing. In America, funding for the arts is so limited, that I cannot imagine being able to work on this scale.

I totally agree! This video of their little girl giant is one of my all time favorites: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBXr15K2uSc
