Memories of August 1914

At the invitation of Liverpool City Council, Royal de Luxe will present a new creation from 23rd to 27th July 2014 in Liverpool.

This urban theatrical tale, entitled “Memories of August 1914” and labelled by the 14-18 NOW mission, will inaugurate the commemorations dedicated to the Centenary of the First World War. It is programmed by the Sport, Tourism and Equalities Minister of the United Kingdom Government. The “Memoirs of August 1914” will plunge the public into this great page of history, which was a landmark for the United Kingdom and the world.

The enormous success – more than 800,000 people – of the show Sea Odyssey, presented in 2012 for the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking, reinforced Joe Anderson, Mayor of Liverpool, in his desire to commission a new creation from Jean-Luc Courcoult, author and director of the company. Liverpool’s previous production of Géants had generated over £32 million in local and regional benefits, not to mention the emotion and poetry felt by the entire population.

Touring the world, from Nantes to Guadalajara (Mexico), from Santiago de Chile to Berlin (Germany), from Antwerp (Belgium) to Foulou (Cameroon), from London (United Kingdom) to Barcelona (Spain), the saga of the Giants, currently on tour, continues to present its universe to the world, leaving an imprint on the collective memory of cities and their citizens.
