FREMANTLE FAREWELLS GIANT PUPPETS

Posted in art, fremantle, piaf by freoview on February 15, 2015

The Giant Puppets are on their way back to France after an amazing success at the Perth International Arts Festival-PIAF that attracted hundreds of thousands of people and challenged the public transport in Perth.

Today thousands came to the Swan River foreshore to say goodbye to the huge marionettes. The sound of didgeridoos announced the progress of the barge along the river.

The Girl and the Diver were also accompanied by a large flotilla of boats  to the East Street jetty in Fremantle, where the puppets were put on the back of trucks to be driven to the port.

    It had nothing to do with the City of Fremantle, Mark. It is a PIAF-Perth International Arts Festival event.

    Nice shots Roel.
    Shame the city couldn’t have organised them to be in town when they where do close.
    Looks like another missed opportunity?

    No credit for the photographer? Who took them? They are superb!
