In a great coup for our city the GIANT PUPPETS are coming to Fremantle on Sunday! They are coming for the Perth International Arts Festival-PIAF but in a change of plans are now boarding a barge at 11 am in Perth and will arrive at the East Street Jetty at 5 pm.
I have not heard if the 6-metre-high Girl and the 11-metre-high Sea Diver will be leaving the barge but it will be a great spectacle anyway to see them on the Swan river. The puppets are the brainchild of the French group Royale de Luxe and have pulled massive crowds where ever they perform.
STOP PRESS!!!! It appears that somebody jumped the gun and informed ABC Radio yesterday about the river trip of the giant puppets, but it is in fact not part of the performance and appears to be based on the fact that the puppets will depart from Fremantle Port. I took my information and details from the ABC Drive program with John McGlue so not sure who at PIAF got the idea of making it public.
THERE WILL BE NO PUBLIC EVENT AT THE EAST STREET JETTY IN FREMANTLE!!
