The Sultan's Elephant
I somehow never got around to watching The Sultan's Elephant performance in London, but I ran across a clip from it today. The performance has a giant marionette of a little girl waking up, taking a shower from a gigantic elephant and walking around the park and playing with "real" little kids. It is bizarre, creepy and truly beautiful. You can see real awe on the faces of the people watching the show.
A second clip shows footage of the giant elephant walking through the crowds of people, and a rocket ship carrying the gigantic little girl blasting off. How simply wonderful.
