Royal de Luxe is a street theatre company founded by Jean-Luc Courcoult.

Based in Nantes since 1990, the company is characterised by both large and small scale shows, performed on the streets of the world’s cities.

'Royal de Luxe has created and developed various forms of theatre, including the 'theatre of places', 'theatre of shop windows' and 'accidents of theatre'. At the heart of his shows, in which machinery transports us into a dreamlike world... In parallel to these creations the company developed a new form of theatre, the saga of the Giants. It is story telling on a city-wide scale. The Giants, handled by tens of Lilliputians, travel the world to tell fundamental narratives, those which impress upon the collective imagination. They mix eras and genres, explore the essential and the contextual, and bring together millions of spectators.
