Jules Verne Marionette

French theatre company, Royale Deluxe, who specialise in huge scale puppetry have got a new project resting and waiting for its turn. This giant mechanical Jules Verne is in Nantes, France preparing to perform at the estuary 2009 arts festival.
"Nantes is the home town of Jules Verne, is situated in western France. Here, near the river Loire a giant deep-sea diver sleeps gently, waiting for his task to begin. Sadness marks his face even as he sleeps. He has been searching the world over for his missing niece and although he may not know it, the end of his search is coming. The diver or scaphandrier as he is known in French will be paraded through the streets of this historic city at the arts festival."
