I’d been worried I wouldn’t see Little Girl-Giant and her Dog when they visited Montreal in May for Montreal’s 375th anniversary because the crowds were so huge. But the puppets dwarfed people and buildings.
About thirty people manipulate each puppet. Her uncle, the Deep-Sea Diver, came too but I didn’t manage to see him.
It takes a massive machine and about 30 people to manipulate each puppet. Their heads turn, their eyeballs move, their eyes blink… The dog’s ears twitch, his tongue comes out, he pants, his tail wags… And they look right at you! They are actually very very spooky!
