A first for me, a non-techie blog post! But boy-oh-boy, if anything warranted a mention on my blog post over the last couple months this has got to be it.
After a few months stuck in work, problems with home renovations, health problems in the family, and a fair bit of all round stress, I've just had the most awe inspiring and thought provoking weekend I can remember, spending a weekend in Liverpool in the company of Royal De Luxe's Giant Sea Odyssey.
For those of you unfamiliar with Royal De Luxe (I'm pretty sure that's actually a burger from Pulp Fiction?), they're a street theatre group based in Nantes, France, who count amongst their cast a 9ft tall dog, a 30ft tall girl and a 50ft tall deep sea diver. These three characters are basically giant marionette-style puppets, controlled by cranes, a pretty coplicated looking system of weights and pulleys, and the remaining 100-or-so members of the group.
