Giant Marionettes Take Over Montreal



Marionettes as tall as 5 storey houses strolled along the streets of Montreal during the city’s 375th birthday on May 17th, 2017. The performance began in Jeanne-Mance Park with the Little Girl-Giant waking up in front of hundreds of people and continued for 3 days.

“They not only walk the city, they create scenes which allow them to tell their stories,” Martin Bolduc, line producer of Montreal’s 375th anniversary told CBC News. The marionettes’ moves were the results of a blend of mechanics, hydraulics, and people operating strings. Each marionette took a team of about 30 people to manage and walked at an average speed of 1.4 miles per hour.
