World Cup Soccer Final Puppets
Throughout our recent International Tour, I've briefly followed the news and heard many reports on the current World Cup Soccer in South Africa. As reported in Puppetry News on 14 June and now on CNN, the World Cup Soccer puppets (click here) have taken South Africa by storm. The giant puppets are a Franco-South-African project presented by the Gauteng Provincial Government, and the French Institute of South Africa together with the group 'Les Grandes Personnes' from Burkina Faso. They have announced that they will make a guest appearance at the World Cup Final at Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg on 11 July.
