Site Specific Design

Created by theatrical "magicians" Royal de Luxe, The Sultans Elephant is a play enacted by massive mechanical puppets throughout cities across the world.

"...Shows are simple – the animal or giant arrives in town and lives its life, going about its business for a few days. Extraordinary interactions take place between passers-by and the performance; residents become enchanted with the activities of these miraculous beings and begin to follow their every move...."

Extract from the website link below

Sounds amazing - I am hoping they come back to London next year.

Interesting, I saw them several times in France, there is a kind of interaction between the "machine" and the people all around, you feel like a child in front of that giant (or there, in front of this elephant)!
