This collection captures the story of ‘The Giants’, as they’re popularly known, who arrived in Liverpool on the weekend of 20-22 April 2012. The spectacular three-day event commemorated 100 years since the sinking of the Titanic, which carried the name of its home port, Liverpool, on its hull, with a unique, human perspective on the tragedy.
The creations of French street theatre pioneers Royal de Luxe, estimated crowds of 250,000 turned into more than 800,000 as the two giants – and Xolo the dog – captured the public imagination with their cheeky, expressive and poignant adventures around Liverpool.
The story is based on the real life tale of ten-year-old May McMurray, whose father William was a first class bedroom steward on board the Titanic. May wrote a letter to her father, which didn’t arrive until after the ill-fated ship had sailed – it was returned to the sender, and is now on display in the Merseyside Maritime Museum at the Albert Dock, where it proved inspiration for Royal de Luxe artistic director Jean-Luc Courcoult.
