Event date & Times

Since the earliest times, men have imagined that giants exist, whether gentle or terrifying. According to folklore expert Albert Marinus, parades and processions of giants express a need to convey ideas and feelings in a visible, extraordinary way. In our region (the Netherlands), the archives attest to the existence of giants all over this area in the 15th century: Goliath, Bayard the Horse (accompanied by the four Aymon sons) and St. George fighting the Dragon. This exhibition displays all the facets of these characters and biblical and legendary heroes, who are so much more imposing than mere mortals. It takes place in the ruins of the Coudenberg Palace, which was Charles V’s residence in Brussels.
A production by the Centre Albert Marinus.
