Sea King and the Mermaid (Denmark)

Giant Puppet workshop on Ærø Island, Denmark

Created to herald in the Ærø International Mask Festival, these two giants were built in a two-week long workshop with a group of adults from the island and from further afield in Denmark and Sweden. The puppets were designed and built from scratch, and puppeteers were trained up from within the community to parade the couple in the street, and to greet the festival-goers off the ferry!

Built in the old boat house on the quayside, the giants were truly inspired by their island setting.
